Great idea. I still have the filler plates from my RR relocation brackets that I gave up using since I couldn't see out of the passenger side mirror. I'll look into removing the factory mirrors and keeping the RR quick release mirrors on permanently with the filler plates from the relocation brackets.

By the way, a real cutie. Reminds me of my youngest daughter that is now a few years older.

I will definitely check out those straps, thanks for the tip! Great build thread, by the way.

I did the same thing. Got two 2 inch, stick on, plastic convex mirrors from Pepboys. Put one on either side vent. I can check my blind spots better than with the stock mirrors. Less than $10.

To add my .02 cents: go by your local motorsycle shop and see what they have that will work. I picked up a mirror for $20 and works great, will take a pic in future. Just added a rubber washer on top and bottom of the hinge and that eliminated any vibrations

I've got the Olympic 4x4 Safari mirrors. Easy to install. They do vibrate a little while driving.

As you can see I run them with the doors on and off no probs. I did add a convex mirror for the rather large blind spot that these really small mirrors create.
Haha, I'm looking into the Rugged Ridge quick release mirrors and of all people, guess who has them... I swear dude, we need to trace our family trees. There has to be a connection somewhere.

Question, do they stay put at highway speeds?

+1 for the convex mirror stuck on the vent.


Side note for everyone using the motorcycle mirrors, apparently if you put the passenger side mirror in the lower hinge, you can actually see out if it. Haven't tried it myself, but remember someone here saying that.

Rugged Ridge

I modified my RR CJ style mirrors from my old TJ and installed them on the JK after removing the OEM mirrors from the doors, color matching the filler plates and I've been happy with the results. No problems with the curbside mirror and no vibrations.

4x4cop, jeepdrivengirl, did you end up using a washer on the bottom bolt? I was having an issue with it chipping the paint in the lower hinge. 4x4cop be safe brother.

I have the Rugged Ridge setup. Kinda think they're a pita. They loosen easily and then when I'm going down the interstate, the wind pushes them in. Plus, it takes two people to adjust the passenger side. However, I'm still using them b/c the hinges are used by the OR Fab doors and they were a relatively cheap option.

Bottom of the hinge when you tighten the nut. Little chipping the first time I put them in. The washer took care of it though.

I don't remember it chipping when I put mine on but it was back in July. I did chip the paint on the bolts when I was taking my doors off & scratched the paint on the side of my jeep bc I didn't really have the right tools. Maybe I was too upset about that to remember the other. :0)

I did this, too. Easy to make yourself. I don't roll with one on the passenger side though. Not required in NC and I can see more by just looking over my shoulder.
