RR mirror relocation brackets

Anybody run these? I like the looks of them online, but it seems like when you open the door, it would hit the mirrors. Doesn't that create a problem?

I haven't had my door hit one yet, just keep the limiting straps on.

2nd that. The straps keep the doors off the mirrors.

I run em too-- the door opens just shy of the bracket.

My issue is that I am short. The A post gets in the way of my direct line of sight for the passenger mirror in the RR bracket. I have to use the OE passenger door bracket with the door on.

I keep a Craftman T-30 driver in the glove box; I move the mirror before I take the door off. Its a 2 minute detour.

Doors work fine with it. With the doors on you can only see the outer 3 inches or so of the passenger side mirror. Personally that's all I need.

The door has never hit mine, either. I only use the drivers side relocation bracket. In Maryland, we only need a mirror on the drivers side. If you use the passenger side bracket, it is hard to see with the door on.

I put a rounded blind spot mirror from Auto Zone on my passenger side and see fine.

It's hard to see out the passenger side w/o shifting your body to see the mirror which will be half hidden behind the A pillar when you're seated in your normal position. Just so you know.
