...what do you all think about fitment and functionality on an FJ45LV?

Functionally probably fine but I think they’d look pretty out of place. Also those look to have a flat mounting plate, might be tough to mount in an aesthetically pleasing way on the curvy LV.

The FJ55 mirrors work pretty well IMO and look great.

I'm looking for something that will be a little better functionality-wise than the 55 mirrors. But yet I don't want to completely destroy the vibe. I have some old school truck mirrors that I think would look pretty nice. Maybe I'll post pictures of those later. These Jeep mirrors are 40 bucks for a pair and our modern functionality.

I would look to the 45 Pickup mirrors for additional functionality. You can even go with a convex mirror for better visibility.

Larger and convex pass side
Bet you could take the 55 ones someplace and have a convex put in? If you want something larger, maybe just get one of the bigger, convex rounded semi-rectangular ones from the 40s.

Personally I just signal for a full block before I want to change lanes ;)

LV that adapted the 40/45 telescoping mirrors. It's tough to tell exactly how it's mounted....possibly to the upper hinge? This type of mirror could also be mounted to the door so the telescoping arm could be much shorter. (image was taken from an article on bring-a-trailer). 67 LV Article on BaT
