Want to remove your doors and relocate your mirrors?
Ok this is for you folks who have been searching or will be in the future for relocation brackets for your mirrors when you take your doors off.
First, Lets all give thanks to the brilliant engineers at Chrysler who designed and manufactured such a cheap mirror. ( Why would you design a mirror that was mounted to a door that is removable, and not make that mirror easily mountable elsewhere once the door is removed without having to buy other hardware?)
