If so, it would be because of the rearview mirror, some states require that there be at least one outside rearview mirror. On the Wrangler, they mount to the door, so if you pull the door you are in violation. I think there are kits that will mount the mirrors on the body of the Jeep, or you could just go get a CJ :thumb:

i think all states require 2 rearview mirrors, and i think most states require at least one of them to be the inside mirror on the windshield

best bet to find the laws about that in NY is to look at the DMV website... there will at least be links to the laws there

NY VAT, Title 3, Article 9, Section 375 relates to vehicle equipment.

i checked the state laws and couldn't find anything about doors. it was mentioned that it's required to have a mirror on the driver's side. not a big deal, i can get mirrors for like $30, i just wanted to make sure that i'm not going to get a ticket for no doors. i have full doors so when the top comes down the doors come off.....

ps - anyone know where i can get half doors for cheap? dealer wants like $1400 for a set.

Hell, you've been ticketed for racing some old diplomat in a Tauras station wagon!
