anyone tried the ridecraft hinge mirrors?

I don't want mirror relocation brackets and all of the hinge mirrors I found either vibrate or have poor visibility.

These are the only mirrors I found that have a convex shape for better visibility. Anyone tried them? photos?

I dont like mirror brackets because i either have to pay $200+ for new mirrors, or take them off my doors. Either way, its not a quick "pop on, pop off" thing that taking the doors off should be.

I don't want to wake up in the morning and spend an hour and a half preparing my Jeep to go to the beach.

I just use the relocator bracket on the driver's side. I don't need the passenger side mirror when all the doors are off since it is pretty easy to see if anyone is in that lane with the freaking doors off!

I hear those vibrate to the point you can't even see what's in the mirror, and the ones I linked look exactly the same but have concave mirrors.

Does anyone actually have the Olympic Safari Mirrors and like them??

In a lot of states driving on public roads without at least one side mirror is illegal. To answer the OP's question, I've not tried the Ridecraft mirrors, but they look like an interesting alternative.
