Hey Mike or Ken.
There is a guy that is admiring the mirrors on Ken's 40 and wondering where one can get a set. Would it be possiable to find out where they came from? thanks Robbie

CCOT arms....I would recommend not buying the heads there though. The quality of those is less than desirable.

Buy the arms there but don't let him buy Jeep mirrors or the bad quality OE lookalikes. I am going to buy OEM mirror heads for mine.

I'm not trying to hijack this thread but my OEM door mounted mirrors never stay adjusted. I have tightened them as much as possible but every time the door closes they fall out of adjustment.

Do cowl mounted mirrors alleviate that problem?

I picked up mirror heads from NAPA. They are metal (not plastic), pretty white color and the attachment is much better.

I have the CCOT mirrors and I think they're fine. They tighten up and hold position well. I would prefer OEM (look way cooler:cool:), but the price was right, and I like that they can be connected to either the hard doors or windshield hinge.

Wow, the OEM heads are cheaper than I thought. Thanks for the link Mike. Want to order me a set too. ;)

Swap the first numbers of the CCOT part number and...BAM! OEM part number. shhhh it's a secret;)

67901-80011 CCOT
87901-60011 OEM

87902-60030 is the OEM arm

Bringing this thread back from the depths, anyone know if the windshield mounted mirrors will clear a snorkel? I am thinking of adding a set of OEM mirrors to the 40.

yes and no. They will fit but you have to angle them forward and out. They work but are funky

Just mount the mirrors on the flat vertical portion of the cowl, like factory. This was stock on 67' and older US 40's.

That is what I was hoping, my snorkel attaches like that. Thanks guys

the only problem with that method is you drill holes in the tub and you permanently mount the mirror there. Early trucks didn't have mirrors on the door. Late 40's if you put the doors back on you have a 2 mirrors. Either run both or take one off. IMHO they got it right on early trucks vs putting them on the doors later. I was actually pulled over in VA a long time ago for not having a side mirror when I pulled the doors off my later truck and just used the rear view. only got a warning tho

anyway...
