kajunrunner I use two left side Harley mirrors. And I just flip the passenger side upside down on the top hinge. Pokes out just perfectly below the curve of the glove box. They were just barn leftovers so they don't even match lol. Idk how it is everywhere else but Louisiana law states that you only need a left hand mirror to see 200ft behind you. A right hand mirror is not needed unless your interior rear view mirror is obstructed... Or just missing

I have a 2010. Trust me when i first got them I absolutely hated them for the same reason. Then one day I took my doors off and on accident found the correct perfect position. The trick is to sorta face the mirror housing more towards u then push the mirror out. You'll be able to see 95% of what's on the mirror

If you actually want a mirror on the passenger side of the Jeep, probably best to skip Rugged Ridge altogether and find a different form of mirror when the doors are off. Got new mirrors coming tomorrow... Just in time to miss my day off completely.

Side note for everyone using the motorcycle mirrors, apparently if you put the passenger side mirror in the lower hinge, you can actually see out if it. Haven't tried it myself, but remember someone here saying that.

Exactly what I do. Works great. I went to Harley and all I could find were $120 sets of billet mirrors. Just ask for the stock black set and they are about $70 for the pair.

I did this, too. Easy to make yourself. I don't roll with one on the passenger side though. Not required in NC and I can see more by just looking over my shoulder.

I don't remember it chipping when I put mine on but it was back in July. I did chip the paint on the bolts when I was taking my doors off & scratched the paint on the side of my jeep bc I didn't really have the right tools. Maybe I was too upset about that to remember the other. :0)

2resa I have the Rugged Ridge setup. Kinda think they're a pita. They loosen easily and then when I'm going down the interstate, the wind pushes them in. Plus, it takes two people to adjust the passenger side. However, I'm still using them b/c the hinges are used by the OR Fab doors and they were a relatively cheap option.

Rugged Ridge

I modified my RR CJ style mirrors from my old TJ and installed them on the JK after removing the OEM mirrors from the doors, color matching the filler plates and I've been happy with the results. No problems with the curbside mirror and no vibrations.

As you can see I run them with the doors on and off no probs. I did add a convex mirror for the rather large blind spot that these really small mirrors create.
Haha, I'm looking into the Rugged Ridge quick release mirrors and of all people, guess who has them... I swear dude, we need to trace our family trees. There has to be a connection somewhere.

Question, do they stay put at highway speeds?
