Just to make sure JKs know, after the lil 2011 revamp, i think most have wiring to the side mirrors. If you want to do the mirror relocation you'll have to cut the wires or add a connector into the harness if you want to keep adjustment/heating for the winter.
I just got soft doors so my Outlaw mirrors to the hinges won't cut it. Thanks Adrian about the RR quick disconnects. Anyone know anything about Lange Quick IIs?? I'm on Quadratec and they look like they might give a good view.

It just occurred to me that since these go on the hinge I can probably install em on the back doors too.
You know...for all my "back seat drivers".

I bought the Die-tech hinge mounts. $69.95/pair plus 12.95 shipping Jeep« Exterior - Die-Tech - DT_MBJK - Die-Tech Off-Road Mirror Brackets for 07-up Jeep« Wrangler JK and other Jeep Wrangler Parts, Jeep Accessories and Soft Tops by FORTEC
And a set of Stock Reproduction mirrors on Ebay. $32.80 each w/free shipping
RH mirror: Overstock Sale Side View Mirror Passenger Right RH Manual Textured | eBay
LH mirror: Overstock Sale Side View Mirror Driver Left LH Manual Textured | eBay
Got the mirrors today. They are identical to stock.
The Die-Tech mounts are powder coated steel. They mount on the hinge with stainless pins and have an additional mount that bolts to an existing JK door panel bolt to reduce vibration.
Looks as though the Die-Tech mount is identical to stock door mirror position except being approx. an inch lower.
So the view should the same as stock. Look like stock mirrors. And has the added advantage of being sturdy and vibration free.
Only downside I see is the added bug juice/bug parts being splattered into the cab.

|AdrianVall||I have the rugged ridge quick disconnect mirrors. They aren't the greatest.. I was thinking of getting the relocation brackets, but I guess they aren't much better.. oh well! You get used to it, but its a pain in the arse trying to find the "right spot" for the passenger mirror.|

|BuLLitz||Why doesn't someone design a mirror that mounts on the door hinge???? Once the door comes off, its a great place for it.|

|jeepers29||LOok at the brackets by die-tech. They put the mirrors back in the original position , but w/o doors on. I love them.|

I can see having the passenger side like that or ones of those little covex mirrors on it
I was planning on adding a little covex to mine to help out
|04-02-2013 07:39 PM|
I made spacers and got longer bolts .. both mirrors good to go. I have a thread on it that died but here is a pic

If you lean over pretty far you can see ok but it still sux. The spot mirrors do help a lot though.

|robdizzle||You pretty much have to buy a smaller convexed mirror to be able to use the passenger mirror. On the flip side, when the doors are off its they are perfect. All in all I'm glad I bought the kit.|

|Scifideity||oh yes, they do indeed. Without the tiny circular wide angle mirror on my passenger side the passenger mirror would be pretty much useless. With the doors on the relocation brackets aren't a great solution. I installed mine because it's about time to remove the doors frequently for the Spring and Summer seasons.|

Ok.. but when you relocate the mirrors, don't the "A" pillars come in the way?? Especially on the passenger side? That's my main concern!!

|Scifideity||I bought a set of the small circular wide angle mirrors to put on the lower corners of mine. It's not perfect but it helps.|

Rugged Ridge Mirror relocation brackets for JK - Visibility feedback please
Quick question for those using the Rugged Ridge Mirror relocation brackets. I was wondering how well do you see in the mirrors once they are relocatedů Especially on the passenger side!
Please share your opinion! Thx!
