Options for JK Mirror relocation

I am in the middle of my 2013 JKU build. On my 2008, I have the
Rugged Ridge Mirror Relocation brackets and Filler Plates (see attached pic).

Any thoughts on other more streamlined options? I like the Rugged Ridge ones, but I am often frustrated by the when going through very narrow obstacles like The Squeeze in Anza Borrego.


Thanks for any ideas.

Debate is good, but more important is to be respectful of people with whom we disagree!

I think the better option is the Rugged Ridge quick release mirror kits. It comes with two mirrors and brackets that attach to factory bolts on the side of the windshield and then you just install the mirrors into the brackets when you want to go doorless and leave the factory mirrors on the doors all the time.

Check out the Lange Mirror II, it's a sleeker option than the factory mirror. It attaches to the windshield frame, so it'll be there when you take the doors off. Also, it can be attached and detached quickly if you're in a tight trail.

The mirror itself is big enough to make visibility as good if not better than the factory mirrors. I hope this gives you some insight, please let me know if you have any questions.

I have the RR quick release mirrors. If you're about to go through a narrow passage you can loosen it up and bring the mirrors along side the jeep really quickly. fairly cheap too. Or you can get Harley Davidson mirrors.
