flyinion Thanks guys yep I got them to move last night. Definitely a bit different than my Z was. For that, each position had a slot to "sit in". The Jeep only has a slot for the normal position.

sunnykk Yes, the mirror bracket folds in. I have done it. Support the complete bracket with both your hands and swivel it in. In it's normal position like kbbwolf mentioned, it sits in some kind of a slot and needs some extra force to started.

The way it happened it had kind of scared me and I let go and never tried it again. That was back when I first took delivery though.
Yeah, they are stiff. But they'll move.

Not sure I explained that well. But they do fold in.

C2U5H Yes, the turn/fold in.

Do the side mirrors fold on an 11-12 JK?

So I was searching Google earlier trying to find out how much roll or pitch a JK could take before going over and I ran across this thread here and in the video around the 40 second mark you can see the passenger side mirror is folded in. I know this is an older JK though. I haven't seen anything in the manual about it though and if they do move........they seem like they're in place pretty good right now.
