Jeep Wrangler Upside-Down Mirror

With the beautiful weather this past weekend I finally got around to trying out a Jeep Tip I mentioned last Wednesday. This tip was turning your rear-view mirror upside down for better visibility.  It is a simple process. 

First pivot your mirror, spin it around, and push it back up. 

With the mirror positioned "upside-down" you do get a better coverage area. However, the "reading" lights on the mirror are now pointed to the top of the Jeep. I have never used them, so I won't miss them. What I don't understand is why they don't install the mirrors this way in the first place. 

The bottom of the mirror measures longer than the top. When you spin it around so the bottom is the top it then gives you more viewing in the location that is needed. 

My only dilemma now is where to put my CB radio. I had just recently installed a Rugged Ridge CB Mount above the rear-view mirror. After testing out the placement for awhile, I found I don't like this spot. Then with the mirror spun around my larger CB Radio doesn't fit. So it looks like back to square one with the CB radio.
