Mirror relocation

I'm lookin at the ones from rugged ridge but keep hearing the passenger side is somewhat useless with doors on. I don't really like the stick mirrors they make for the door hinge. What's suggested?

Dietech brackets are well worth the money.

Die Tech's and an extra set of mirrors so you don't have to keep removing them. Even though it's not really a big deal. Well worth it, these things do not vibrate at all, and the passenger mirror is almost spot on with the stock location.

I ran the RR relocation brackets for a few years. The passenger side mirror was 2/3 obscured when the doors were on. I switched to these: http://www.ruggedridge.com/exterior/mirrors.html

They stick out further than the stock ones on the relocation brackets, so the passenger side mirror is fully visible. No vibration even up to 80mph.

Most states don't even require a passenger mirror. If my doors are off, then the top is off so there's no obstruction of view...I just look over my shoulder (which you should do anyway). Hell, my other car doesn't have a passenger mirror either.

Anyone consider using those $2-$3 little round stick-on mirrors stuck on to the outboard AC vents when the vents are turned to the shut-off position? I think they could be arranged to provide some sort of acceptable viewing angle.

Running these with the cover plate on the doors. Don't need to mess with mirrors when pulling the doors off. Like TDDO said, no vibes. They whistle due to a lip on the back of the mirror though and since the mirrors are non convex there's not much viewing in the passenger side.

I just put tube doors on and put an extra mirror on the passenger one. I used the RR brackets and had no passenger mirror view during the winter and got so sick of it that I got the tube doors.

Olympic makes the Safari Mirrors that fit in the door hinge pivots, you can use them with thier tubular Safari Doors but not the O.E.M. doors. http://www.olympic4x4products.com/Je...-TJ-YJ-CJ.html
