jgorm Looks cool! I'm uber lazy and found a mirror that bolts through the hole. Its not as nice as the big mirrors, but it works just fine when I take the doors off.

Loic here are the dimension, the bracket is a little shorter than the whole miror, you can make it a bit longer. email me if you have questions

n00bkiller944 Make me a set!?!?!

neverfastenough1 From the front.

neverfastenough1 I made one for the drivers side only since I am not required to have one on the passenger side either. It took every bit of 30 minutes to make and around 2.50 for the stick on mirror. Only sticks out about 2 inches or so.

wolfen Hey can I use that idea for mine?
I bought the relocation brackets two years ago and made 3" extensions for mine. But your idea looks sweet. Wish I'd thought of that two years ago

Big_B I have the relo brackets from 4wheelparts.com (Mirror Relocation Brackets by Kentrol-RH3). They actually work really well and don't look bad at all. I can leave the driver side in place with or without the door. I can only see the passenger side when the door is off so that was an issue. I put the mirror back on the door so I can see it when the doors are on. I checked NC law and found that I don't need the passenger side mirror so I'm not planning on putting it back on the Jeep when the doors are off. I have used this setup since last year and no one has even noticed that the mirrors aren't in the same place on either side.

I wanted to use the OEM mirror as I like the size, so I went to home depot and bought some flat bar, 2 inches wide and 3/16 thick. I cut it the lenght I needed and welded (wire feed and I'm not that good at welding....) the 2 flat bar together by the middle.

Hey I know its been a while since you have done this but was wondering if you still had them like any way to give me dimensions of the just piece of metal so i can make my own like this instead of buyin the tacky $40 relocation brackets? My dad works at a sheet metal shop so it woulnt be nothing for me to get the metal then ill just have to drill the holes

nater344 Looks good man! It always feels better when you make it yourself.
06-09-2010 07:17 PM
TurkA77 They look good man, but for $60 you could have had these. Took me 5 min to put them on. When the doors go back on it will take me 5 min to get them off

Personally...Harley mirrors are the way to go...or if you don't wanna spend the cash on those, make your own from some mirrors and some threaded rod or something along those lines. Then you just pull the doors (with the mirrors still attached) and then slip the mirrors into the hole for the top hinge, thread the nut on, adjust the angle, tighten, and aim your mirrors.
I dont think I can as the thickness of the bracket may be too big to get behing the hinge, but at the same time I dont plan on putting the door on / off every other day. when I want them backe on it's only 2 bolts for the bracket and 3 for the mirror, no big deal it will take less than 3 minutes.

home made mirror bracket

i'm making some mirror bracket so I can remove the door. I have started this a couple weeks ago, but having only 1 day off / week, it's been hard to do anything..
I wanted to use the OEM mirror as I like the size, so I went to home depot and bought some flat bar, 2 inches wide and 3/16 thick.
