    I used a roll bar mounted kohl-in unit from my old Mule and just mounted it to an L bracket that’s bolted to the roof mounting bracket, don’t have a pic handy at the moment though.

    I got the mirror offered by Yamaha (Assault industries) which mounts to the roll cage but I found it intruded too much into the cabin. Hit my head on it many times when getting in. So I took it off the roll cage and mounted it onto a piece of 1” channel which I trimmed to fit onto the roof supports. I used existing holes in those supports to bolt it in place. I’m really happy with the location, now out of the way and improved rear view angles.Name:  1F255F67-FB81-451E-B7FA-12A773A4005B.jpeg

    I installed this mirror. https://www.ebay.com/itm/REAR-VIEW-S...MAAOSw2s1U0sgR
    I used a little goop when installing it and it's as good as my cars rear view mirror.

    love the creativity. Hint- turn the mounting bolts up with nuts on top so the open bolt is not exposed. Or you could grind them off a little and use an Acorn nut. Sometimes I will just mark them and cut them off with the keeper nuts like you have too. Sometimes moving around in cab without a helmet even just working on it, you may discover that was a good move.

    With that bar, you could hang lights as well now. Yellow down firing on the trail.

    Thanks Jim. Great minds think alike! The picture was taken when I first fit-up the mirror. After tightening everything, I finished the job with a cut-off disk to remove the excess bolt. It doesn’t look at all dangerous now.
