joesjeeps The mounting bracket has a foam pad. I like mine, no folding (yet) and no whistling. $49.99 a pair from Morris 4x4.

xj-boonie Wondering about the design with the metal bracket mounted right on the windshield frame, metal to metal. Anyone add a rubber pad or something, but then wouldn't that trap moisture and cause rust? Just thinking out loud...

IowaRaider mine have never folded in but I crank them pretty tight. They do get bumped and need to be adjusted every once in a while but no biggie. I set mine so they are a little further back and the half doors don't hit them...the soft doors do though since they have no strap. I have never noticed a whistle either, might be because I replaced the mirror portion with convex ones from O'Reilys.

M5ivan I run mine with my 1/2 doors and love them. If you run half doors, the windows will hit them if you open the door all the way. Mine have folded on the highway until I added a washer to the top of the bracket. They do come with the padding and are easy on/off. I did Plasti Dip the backs of my mirrors as they have gold parts that stick out out like a sore thumb! Got mine at Quadratec.

Chris M I think I got mine off eBay. I ended up paying only $35 or so for mine.

TomL Sounds awesome, thanks for your experience!

Also, do you remember where you bought them? My go-to site is Quadratec, but for one reason or another, they don't have any.

Chris M I run my RR mirrors all the time, even with the doors on. I did have the driver side close in on the highway the other day. I just hopped out and tightened it down as much as I could. The only issue I can really say I've had is bumping the mirror and it getting all out of whack. Just tighten the screw up on the back of the mirror to fix it. They also whistle, but who really cares?

As for parts, I remember a bracket with pad, mirror, and bolt to hold it all together.

Anybody have Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirrors? Please Help!

So, I'm looking to buy side view mirrors for my JK so that I can enjoy driving it with the doors off. Recently, I purchased a Lange Quick Mirror I from Quadratec, and I must say that I was very disappointed. It was poorly designed, and it would not stay on the door hinge properly. I've since returned it, and I'm now searching for another mirror.

Anyway, I stumbled across the Rugged Ridge line of mirrors, and from what I've read, the quick release mirrors are a good buy despite minor problems like having them occasionally fold in at highway speeds.

Can any RR mirror owners give me a review of these mirrors?

Finally, and most importantly, on each website I've found them, it gives vague descriptions of what is included when you buy a kit. I've heard that it comes with a padding or gasket that will prevent the bracket from scratching the paint, but I've also heard from other sources that it doesn't come with something like that.

Any help with this topic would be greatly appreciated!
