If you like to take your door off you might already own a set of Rugged Ridge Trail Mirrors.  I love the versatility that comes with having them but have always found their field of view to be seriously lacking.  A friend recently told me about his solution to this.  You can get 5″ wide angle versions of this mirror at just about any auto parts store (I found mine at Advance Auto for $9.99ea) and the results are HUGE!  I’ve since removed my stock mirrors completely and use these full time.  They bolt right into the same mounting point as the default Rugged Ridge mirrors, but give you a exponential increase in visibility to your sides.   

Rugged Ridge now offers a square version of this mirror kit as well as a wide angle version, but if you are like me and already own the older round (and almost useless) version then this is an inexpensive mod to save you from a full replacement when you already own the brackets and mounts.

Of course, keep in mind that Objects in Mirror are Closer than they appear:
