Law is at least two mirrors. Driver is mandatory. If the rear view is blocked ie towing or a back window is blocked; then the passenger side is required.

Enjoy it man it's ****in killer redneck ac

I've never had a problem. I also recall hearing that if your rear glass is tinted, your inside rear view mirror does not count as a mirror.

I lost my mirror like 2 years ago and haven't had a problem running mirror-less since then.

It sure is tons of fun thiugh

I have ran with no doors and half doors and was never even looked at. By CHP or city police and they're looking to collect money now a days. Enjoy the ride, plus you'll like the open view when off roading

I had a CHP follow me from valley springs for countless miles while I freaked out (no doors, cracked windshield, lisc plate is blocked by rear tire carrier, no fenders, and the jeep was swerving all over the road in front of him- so sketchy to drive without the sway bars and whatever my current front end issue is) and he didnt bother to pull me over....

only downside is I have a really bad sunburn on my left leg above the knee due to not putting sunscreen on sunday and driving home in shorts.

I've been pulled over a couple times and they've never thought twice about the doors. just make sure you've got good rock sliders. I smashed my last ones in and the doors never went back on. this time around I'm leaving the doors on and loving it. it's awesome but annoying getting wind whipped on the freeway and not being able to hear your passenger talk without yelling

IIRC, the "law" for no doors is 2 or more mirrors and "4 inches" between the floor and the bottom of the door opening.

Is that 4" from the ground to the bottom of the door? Or from the floor mat and the bottom of the door?

The "law" confuses me.:twak:

California Vehicle Code:

Found this, still looking for door less specific.
