For those of us who don’t have half doors…I couldn’t order in fire cracker red btw, the doors off mirrors options kinda suck for the JL. I ordered some from CMM ( Carolina metal Masters), I’m liking them, absolutely no vibration or shaking. Plenty options with the ball joints for GoPro or other cameras. I used CMM ball joint also for my phone mount. Good, well built products made in America. It does take a little getting used to looking in different spots to see the mirrors but otherwise a solid product. The mounts stay put on your grab handles and look very OEM in the Jeep. 5 minute install.

So looking at their website - what does the "ball mount delete" do? Is the ball mount on the back of the mirror which allows adjustment and delete means no adjustment? Thanks!

There is an option to have a ball on the bottom of the mount. I choose not to have the ball so I got the ball mount delete. You can always add the ball later. I may add it later on one side to add a dash cam. On the outside of the mirror there is a ball to be able to mount things like a GoPro. In this picture, were that screw head is would be where the ball would be. Also, I think you can mount this on the bottom of the grab handle also. I may try to see what it looks like just for shits and giggles.

I also used their ball mount for my phone holder. I purchased the ram and phone cradle from different companies. This thing is incredibly solid.
The ball is a 20mm Grab Bar Mount from CMM
The arm is a 3.5 inch duel 20mm socket from Offroam
The cradle is a universal phone mount holder from BulletPoint Mounting Solutions.

Got it. Thanks for the info! One more question - can you move the mirror closer to the body, i.e. where the mount attaches to the grab handle - will the bar the mirror is on slide through the mount or is it fixed? Thanks again. I actually have the side mirrors on the body armor trail doors, but I'm thinking of this in addition to allow for backing up close to curbs and such.

It won’t slide through and the mirror is fixed at the end.

Yes, in fact, between the bar and the mirror you can adjust it endlessly. Very easy and quick to add and take off once the brackets are installed…and those only took 5 minutes.

I’ve always liked the CMM mirrors but can’t justify the price for them. I just picked up a set of the Lange Originals Coyote mirrors for less than half the price of CMM. They don’t move or vibrate even at highway speeds and take less that a minute to take off and on when you go doorless:

I agree about the cost for sure, I couldn’t find many good reviews for any other JL doors off mirrors. The only way to really justify the CMM mirrors are the added benefits of being able to use the ball joints to add GoPros etc. on the outside of your Jeep without having to but new brackets. And maybe that’s a stretch. With the number of videos you do, you might get some benefit from them. I also used a CMM ball joint to mount my BulletPoint phone holder. I don’t like the phone holder CMM sells but their ball joints are solid. Sorry these pics are sideways.

We have the bullet point phone mount in the 392, and that’s been great. I’ll have to take a look at CMM’s offerings to see if they have any other GoPro mounting solutions that I could use, but so far my windshield suction cup mount has been great.

You red rig looks awesome!

So no half door option for Firecracker Red? It’s funny because the Jeep website shows it as an option when configuring a custom order. Well good to know you just saved me $4300.

When I ordered it wouldn’t let the dealer add the option for red. He called and they told him it isn’t an option on the red…it’s funny because when Jeep announced the half doors it was a picture of a red one, WTF
