Question any sug on mirror brackets

I'm starting to look at mirror relocation brackets. Anybody with experience with this? I don't want to buy something i'll regret. The only thing i'd like is a flat black. But not sure which brand to go with. although i'm eyeing the warrior bracket. it's a combo mirror light unit. any sugestions or warnings would be greatly appreciated. thanks in advance.

Many people on the forum have just purchased Harley mirrors and attached them in the door hinges. No need for relocation brackets that way.

This is what I did.

amazon.com/gp/product/B001A0SGBY

Then I purchased a bunch of Purolator oil filters to make it past the $25 for free shipping. For $10 you really can't go wrong in my book.

I would suggest the motorcycle mirrors too. Reason being, I bought the relocation brackets. It's fine now, but they were a bitch to put on. I couldn't get the bolts on the side of the windsheild off even with an impact wrench. Ended up getting 2 out of the 4 off and 2 of them stripped. I needed to drill out the stripped bolts which was a chore. Long story short, if you go the bracket route, you may want to check the situation with those bolts first. Another tip, if you do get them out, don't go with a torx head for a replacement! I didn't!

I don't remember where I posted about it, the mirror relocation brackets work great when the doors are off. With the doors on, they hit the mirrors if you open them to far for any reason. And the passenger mirror, is pretty much useless since half of it is blocked off.
If you have soft doors, then you have to either get the relocation brackets or some other mirror that attaches to the body.
