newbie needs help

I want to buy and install a conversion kit to move the side mirrors so that we can remove the doors next summer. Can I do it myself or would I be better off taking it to someone who knows what they're doing? I'm sure this is a redundant question but I couldn't find anything already posted. I am a bit daunted on how to maneuver this site....I hope to catch on soon.
Thanks,
~dave

There are lots of mirror relocation kits available and most of them come with pretty clear instructions. The only problem that I have found is that when you relocate the mirrors, it is hard to use the passenger side mirror with the doors on.
Another option that would not require you to relocate the mirrors at all is to purchase a set of motorcylce mirrors with stems long enough to pass through the hinges. Easy to install when doorless and remove when you put your doors back on.

I'm new to the whole keep thing and it's pretty easy, I got the warrior relocation brackets from 4 wheel parts for $45. It's really easy to do, the hardest part was storing the doors safely, and yes you won't be able to see your passenger mirior... But you drive a jeep

Thanks Snowbum. Would you mind explaining and yes you won't be able to see your passenger mirior... for me? If the driver can't see it, what is it's purpose?
Thanks,
