Relocation kit for side mirror issues

I installed the side mirror relocation kit this weekend and am real dissappointed with how much mirror functionallity I have loss. The passenger mirror is about 80% unusable now, and the driver side needs to be turned out wider then even with the door when fully opened.

Anyone had this issue and found a way to make the mirrors functional again?

i thought about getting that kit but only wanted the driver side bracket anyways because of the loss of functionality, here in TN the law requires atleast one other rear facing (aka side) mirror (besides the rear veiw mirror) on a vehicle, so i plan on either getting the kit and only using the driver side bracket or not getting the kit and buying a motorcycle mirror to slide in the door hinge when the door is off.

Take your doors off and full functionality will be restored!

I stuck one of those convex adhesive mirrors in the corner of the pass mirror. It helps a little bit.

yeah thats just something ya either gotta get used to and start looking over your shoulder, or only do the drivers side and not have a pass mirror when the doors are off.
i personally am used to looking over my shoulder anyways so mine does not bother me

I bought the Safari mirrors for my jeep and they work pretty damn good. They ran about $54 shipped. My only complainant is they vibrate a lot on the highway but are definitly well usable for what I want.

for sure, they work well when there isn't a door in the way, and that is why I bought them! I already have a little wide angle mirror mounted to see down the side of the jeep, and have accepted the fact that I'm going to have to look over my right shoulder now. I got the driver side adjusted good now, so I'm happy. I also asked my service manager this morning when I was dropping her off to get some lower control arm bracket skids welded on (amazing how much I hit them!) He said all brands have the same problem. I love my Jeep!
