I used these Warrior Products brackets for a couple of years when I used my tube doors Warrior Products WAR1500 - Warrior Products Mirror Relocation Brackets in Black for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec The only problem with them is that the right hand mirror sets far enough forward that the windshield frame cuts off about half of the view out the mirror...other than that they work well. Since then I've welded plates on my tube doors to mount my mirrors to. Here's pic with them installed.

Long-stem Harley mirrors FTW and a nice clean look!
Harley Davidson tapered long-stem left side replacement mirror, H-D part number 91910-03B; the right side mirror is pn 91909-03B.

I just use one mirror, in the driver's upper door hinge. My buddy superintended the install, I couldn't have done it with out him. ;-)

I have these CIPA 44800/01 - Dual Mirror Set in Black for 97-06 JeepĀ® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with Soft Doors - Quadratec They're ok but vibrate a lot when driving down the highway. You can tell what's back there but can't see details really. If I had it to do over again I would have just bought brackets instead of new mirrors.

So I almost did the conversion swap to the Rampage brackets but!! I stripped those dang bolts so bad I can't even drill them out due to getting a diamond drill bit broke off in them. I actually got 2 of 4 out but the top ones are stuck like no other! I would like to blame something but I can't think of nothing other than myself. Taking any pointers except for extractors bc I tried that and welding due to a fresh paint job. Thanks!!

I have had great success using a center punch and hammer. You drive the punch into the face of the torx head screw to dimple it, then cock the center punch so you drive the screw counter clockwise . The screw will slowly spin out with every blow of the hammer.

I have had great success using a center punch and hammer to remove the incredibly stuck torx head screws. You drive the center punch into the flat face of the screw, a little bit in from the outer edge, to create a dimple. Then cock the center punch to drive the screw counter clockwise. It will slowly spin out with every blow of the hammer. Has worked every time for me.

Mirror relocation brackets, Rugged Ridge.
I had the "el-cheapo" mirror bolted to the hinge, but it vibrated so badly it was almost worthless. Plus, I had to wrench it off to put my doors on.
Now, the mirrors (on both sides) stay on all the time, and I can go doorless or with doors as I see fit, without tools.

Did you see the price that link has for those things! $99! Looks like $15 worth of material. I was thinking of making one like this myself.
