Beastmaster I guess what kind of mirror location bracket you get depends on your tastes and local laws.

Here in Arizona, all that is required is some kind of mirror, it doesn't state what kind or where (rear view or side view). That being said, I use my side mirrors allot and I didn't want to get something that was flimsey and would shake while I was driving down the road. Mirrors mounted forward of the doors wouldn't work for me because I couldn't see the passenger side.

I opted for these from DieTech (not my video):

Of course, if it was $25 at the Harley stealership you coulda got it for $5 anywhere else.

I do exactly this, the mirror even flops around a little with the wind, i haven't found a good way to aim it yet. mainly because i don't care

Michigunman It comes with the mirror. Its a dome nut.

bluesmokey I bought a rugged ridge set that can be removed and put on with one hand so u can keep the factory mirrors on the door... They work great and cost like 40$.

Which nut? It comes with the Harley mirror or the stock jeep one

Brad48178 I use these I can't remember what I paid for them. I got them from either quadratec or 4wd hardware.

VincentC804 First thing i did was rip my doors off when I bought my Jeep back in 93. I was doorless today and what you give up in side mirrors you make up for in awesomeness...just peek over your shoulder when you need to change lanes...no biggie

Sueby Look around - maybe Quadratec or something because they make a few different options depending on what you need. I'm not a fan of the relocation brackets (had a set on my old TJ) and I needed something that didn't sit in the hinge because I use my full soft doors quite a bit so I ended up with the Lange:

Wait...what'd you call me?
Yeah, I got the relocation brackets from the ol Amazonz and they work...except I can't see a damn thing out of my passenger side mirror with the doors on. All the more reason to roll around without doors, I guess
03-16-2012 03:50 PM
bfoster426 No worries! It'll be a blast with the doors off and I'll completely forget about how broke I am..............till i run outta gas

jerladd I bought these suckers for my 03 Rubicon.

Amazon.com: Rugged Ridge 11025.02 Black Mirror Relocation Bracket - Pair: Automotive

Word of advice, if you decide to go this route first check your mirrors. Look underneath where a bolt would be attached to see if there is an actual bolt. Some Jeeps, such as RubiX, didn't have a bolt instead it was a 1 way washer that you'd have to break to get the mirrors out, so I had to use the mirrors I had on my spare half doors.

bfoster426 Awesome! Thanks so much!

bfoster426 Anybody know about the laws in KY on this?
03-16-2012 03:18 PM
Gate53 The motorcycle mirrors work great. What I like even better is that here in TN I don't need any to be legal.
03-16-2012 03:14 PM
Pontiackid87 Just bought a set.. only thing that sucks is when your doors are on you cant see squat out of your passenger side mirror.

blkrubi88 Make your own, that's what I did.
