|JKmedicPA||Mine were in about 7 layers of small bubble wrap, wrapped separately and put in the same box. I think that is ok however there should be another medium in there. Like stuff some news paper in the box, put one in, stuff more newspaper in the box, put the other, top of with newspaper and tape up and ship.|

|Y-Guy||I had one bent post in mine too, they need to stop mounting them when they ship them. Had they taken them off and put them in a plastic pouch they would have been fine. They shipped a replacement right out, but none the less it took another week - and I wanted my doors off.|

Well I pulled the trigger and got the brackets and the mirrors. Brackets Die Tech obviously and the Quadratec Mirrors. Since I have the power mirrors in the JK I am just going to be locktiteing everything together. I just picked up some M8 x 1.25 40mm length Hex heads from HomeD to hold them together. However I have one small problem first and I am waiting to hear back from Die-Tech but I will be calling in the AM on monday!
I go my brackets from UPS and I have to say they are awesome however they are poorly packaged!!! I read on here that someone got brackets that were bent, well mine showed up bent as well. I have to say I don't think that this is a problem with die tech shipping them bent, however, a problem with them shipping. I think that they are getting bent bouncing around with other boxes and against each other in their own box!
I am going to see how they feel about me bending them back a little so I can at least use them for the few days of nice weather we will be getting while they ship replacements.
The other bracket is bent just as bad however the part where the door nuts screw in through hinges isn't bent on that one.
I will edit and post when everything is done up and I hear back from them!
No pics of the mirrors because well Rick from Quadratec did a great job helping with my order and it shipped great! With the exception of FedEx letting it sit around for 3 days because the driver decided he wanted to quit.

For those who use the Q-Tech Relocation ones - it looks like they give a filler plate for the full door - just a little circle. Does anyone have experience with it? It doesn't look like it requires the plate to be welded on - so I'm curious how it stays (magnetic?).

It took me another month from my last post to finally get the parts needed and the doors off. The mirrors from AutoandArt on Amazon are great, I can't tell there is any vibration of the mirrors even on some rougher roads in town.
The only frustration I had was dealing with Die-Tech. They are not exactly fast nor good about communication, the product itself is fine though. The frustration I had with them is the steel pin/screw that connects to the mirror and into the hinge on one of mine was bent from the shipping. I did suggest to them they should be shipped with the pin/screw removed as the weight of the mirrors the the brutes shipping had probably bent it. Beyond the bent pin I was irritated that I had emailed them 3 times, with no reply and called once. I was about ready to call Visa and have the charge put into dispute, that day I got a call and they apologized for not replying sooner. I get they are a small business and were probably on vacation, but change your voice mail, use email auto-reply - even a small business can look like a big business with a few simple tools. In the end they got the spare part out and I'm good to go.
Mirrors and the Die-Tech mounts are rock solid and look factory! I'm a happy camper. Thanks to those that posted earlier with your experiences.

I gave up on CongoAutoworld/TruckChamp as they don't have the passenger side mirror in stock it appears. I did use the part number that they showed on their website and after some googeling I found some for sale on Amazon. I'm always suspicious of 3rd party vendors on Amazon or even eBay. But they quickly shipped my mirrors and I'm tracking them, should have them in hand by July 5th. I bought them from AutoandArt on Amazon. Two pack for $65.92 with free shipping. Spiderwebshade should be here soon too.

|Ggg||Just another cheaper idea I use on my TJ, and it works as just well on JK's as well. I use a pair of long stem Harley mirrors. Insert them into the upper hinge and tighten the nut, done. I paid $10 for a used pair on ebay, and I used some left over wrinkle finish black paint to color them.|

|Y-Guy||I thought I'd give a quick update. I called to place an order for mirrors, took the guy a few to understand I was asking for the price from online, at first he wanted to cut me a killer deal and give me both for $100, then I pointed him to their ebay store and the price of $32.80 each. Of course just after that he tells me the passenger side is sold out and he's not sure how long it will be before they get any in stock. I'll check back in a week. Thanks for the heads up on this deal.|

|stryke-force||I use the dietech mounts and they work great. Had some brand...I think lange, and I didn't care for them at all.|
|03-26-2013 06:39 PM|
There ya go! I have ordered from that company before so maybe they saw that I spent a few bills with them and gave me a little extra?... anyway the ones I ordered shipped out today and should be here in by weeks end so I will post back in here.
I realized that I kinda thread jacked here and that's not like me, maybe I should start my own thread for the super cheap replacement mirrors and help out other Jeepers who might need these.

|kramer2k||Sweet! Just called up that place and got a pair of mirrors for my Bestop Highrock Element doors for $64 shipped.|

I'm just not afraid to ask for a little extra discount when I order stuff. You will be surprised what some stores or shops will give just for asking
The ebay store that those are listed by is actually Quality Discount Truck Accessories and SUV Accessories - TruckChamp. I just did a Google search for L.O.F inc (seen in the pictures) and I found the company that way, I called up truck champ 1-888-244-5908 and talked with Lindsey she was really helpful in checking inventory and setting up the order, I asked her if I ordered them over the phone and didn't buy through eBay and paypal which ends up costing them money from the listing fee's and such if she could offer me these any cheaper and she said I can work out something for you she said she could do them for $58 shipped and I said Okay! within moments I had an email order confirmation and she said once they ship out tomorrow I will get tracking info.
Maybe someone there can do the same for you... Best of luck and I'll update this with my thoughts on the new mirrors.

That's great! Thanks.
I am now in need of a replacement set for my Bestop Highrock Element doors I just ordered. These should fit the bill nicely. And I won't need the Dietech mounts.
What number did you call and please teach me how to be awesome to save a few dollars. . What'd you say to them?
|03-25-2013 03:03 PM|
For those of you looking for a set of replacement mirrors check these out! I called the company and talked with customer service and got them even cheaper because I rock! I got em for $58 for the pair including shipping
Overstock Sale Side View Mirror Driver Left LH Manual Textured | eBay
Overstock Sale Side View Mirror Passenger Right RH Manual Textured | eBay
That price is crazy cheap and for someone who wants a spare complete set of mirrors to pop in for when the doors come off this is the solution for them! Pair these with the Dietech mounts and you have a bad ass setup for under $130

|SaltySeats||Ahhh yea disregard total brain fart on my end! Wasn't looking at the DieTech part properly.|
|02-19-2013 02:43 PM|
Here a picture of a factory bracket and the Dietec bracket. The mirror bracket slides into the two holes and secures with two bolts. Hope this helps.
|02-19-2013 01:50 PM|
|SaltySeats||I figured the connecting arm would use the same style hardware as the stock mirrors and would connect to the DieTech the same way.|
|02-19-2013 01:46 PM|
|SaltySeats||No I haven't purchased either yet.|
|02-19-2013 12:39 PM|
|JerryJeepster||It doesn't look like it to me. I bought the Dietec mounts and the Quadratec mirrors for my 12. Do you already have the mirrors??|
|02-19-2013 11:35 AM|
Would you be able to use the following mirrors with the DieTech mounts?
|02-13-2013 09:37 AM|
|JerryJeepster||Update: I contacted Dietech lastnight by email and they are shipping a new set today with a return label for the damaged ones. Great customer service but the packer should have never sent those out. Especially two damaged ones to the same customer. Lol|

The Quadratec Mirrors will be on par with the Bestop HighRock Mirrors.
Both are in stock, PM me for a Promo Code
|02-08-2013 05:16 PM|
|JerryJeepster||Happy to see them at work. I just ordered them today and a second set of mirrors. I didn't want to keep taking a chance of scratching up my doors.|
