Never heard of them. I have the Rugged Ridge brackets.

I was searching mirror relocation and found them mentioned in a couple of threads. Here is one:

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/mir...ion-67118.html

Everyone that has them really likes them. Here is a vid showing them being changed out:



...personally, I thought it looked like more work than I wanted to go through each time I swapped my doors. I opted for a pair of the Olympic products safari mirrors. One nut on each side. However, there is definitely a trade off. You can't see out of the safari all that well. I haven't really even tested them except while sitting still. I heard they will vibrate at highway speeds and I expect that is true.

I prefer the Safari mirrors over the relocation. If you relocate your mirrors, the passenger door blocks most of the mirror on that side. Good idea, just does not work as well as I would like IMO

the Die tech's put the mirrors closer to the stock location that was my draw to them. I'd leave my stock units on the door and just buy a second set that would cut the swap out time in half & keep from breaking anything. I don't like the buzz or vibration I get from the bits I have now & I don't like not being able to see out of the passenger side mirror. I was hoping these would not have either drawback.
