Quadratec door mirrors

anybody using these mirrors?

Original Replacement Parts 44700/01 - Dual Soft Door Mirror Set in Black for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ - Quadratec

i have the stock mirror right now but want a different look. how will they work with an oem soft top? the soft top frame runs along the windshield and it will be a close fit. also, will they hit the door when it opens?

if anyone has them post some pic so i can check them out for real, not just the quadratec site photos.

I sell a nice door hinge mirror! But it is only for while doors are off. Im going to be working on a bracket so it can be used with doors eventually.

I just picked up a set at the Jeep Show in York PA last weekend. The install is easy and they look good. The quality is good and they are adjustable with our without doors. When my doors are on I will basically look through the windshield to see the passenger side one.

There are locking screws that allow you to lock them down once you set them.

For the price I think you can't go wrong.

Standard set as seen here starts at $50.00. I can also black out the brackets for $60.00. Also offered with a powder coat bracket for $65.00. I am open to custom ideas as well. There are more pics on my thread from other jeeps with them mounted. They are seen here on my JK.

The Quadratec mirrors worked for me.
Now have a door/ no door option.
These mirrors use the upper half of the windshield hinge, no difficult nut to deal with.
I originaly tried the relocation brackets for the OEM mirrors but they used the lower half of the windshield hinge, with the difficult nuts on the backside.

These new mirrors vibrated pretty bad over 50mph.
However, I went at every nut and screw with man hands.
Now the vibration is tolerable, downside is the mirrors are now unadjustable.
Since I am the only driver that really isn't a downside.

The plastic doorframes from the softtop had to come off.
I could notch them for the mirror bracket but will just go back to OEM mirrors when the doors/ top go on in winter.

I never thought my wife would like riding doorless.
Now she appreciates the added airflow and even uses the footpeg!

the reason i'm looking into these mirrors is because my factory door mirrors move everytime i close the door. it's a hassle. is there any way to install them and leave the soft top plastic door frames on? or is there another mirror option i haven't found yet.

Did you try to tighten the two Philips screws visible underneath?
You may want to remove from the door so they're easier to work with.

Your problem is you have a screw loose.

If you are the only driver get them how you want and go to town on those screws.
Back off a little if somebody may need to move the mirrors.
