Rugged Ridge Mirror relocation help

I got the relocation brackets and it seems it doesn't come with any bolts. Anyone have pics of this install in a 97-02 TJ? It seems if I remove the mirror brackets from the door nothing will be holding the door hinge in place. Also, if I use the window hinge bolts there will be Desert Sand bolts on black brackets. Anyone know what size bolts hold the mirror to the door, or the window hinge to the body?

The hinges and the mirrors do not share the same bolts IIRC. Not sure about the rugged ridge kit, but mine came with three bolts and nuts to attach the mirrors to the brackets. Not sure on the bolt sizes.

Send them back for a refund. If you move the passenger mirror it will become useless when you reinstall the door.

Which kit did you get?

I've got an 04 so I HAVE to get 11025.03 whereas the .02 is only for 97-02

I haven't had any issues with my passenger side mirror except for people knocking it out too much when they get out of the jeep. Otherwise, I can see it just fine with hard door installed. It more difficult with the soft doors on, but still not useless.

I have these:

Warrior Products WAR1500 - Warrior Products Mirror Relocation Brackets in Black for 97-02 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

You unbolt the mirror from its mount on the door (1 17mm nut) and take out the spring and washers, then slip it all into these. Will not work with the hard doors on.

Only takes a few minutes to move over and adjust.

I have the full metal doors and the .02 kit. I'm thinking I may just have to pull the mirror brackets and see what fits. Do the mirror bracket bolts double as the hinge bolt, too?
