Loving these mirror brackets!!!!

Someone on here commented about these, liked the look so I got them and I'm loving them!! Only took about 5 minutes a side to completely install and was rediculously easy to do! Heres some pics (oh they are from Dietech Offroad) I think around 80 bucks for the set (77.99 to be exact)

I have these. They are well worth the money. They place the mirrors in the exact same position as when they are on the doors. They look good too.

Dietech? Isn't that the company that copied their evap canister skid from Kilby and C-gussets from ORE?

That being said, those brackets look pretty damn good. I have yet to see these anywhere else; so, maybe they're an original design. About time.

I think this was actually their first product for jeeps, before they copied the others.

They Do look nice. Do they keep the mirror from vibrating?

Pretty solid mounting with no vibration. It goes into the door hinge then secured at one of the hinge bolts.

Wow , those are pretty impressive...now I just need to order some mirrors with those brackets. That way I don't have to remove the one remaining mirror I have on my full doors.

Yup, just came off the highway and at 60 mph it was same as if they were on the door- no vibration at all. We did get sand blasted though-not cause of the mirrors, saved me from having to vacuume the jeep!!!!

Yeah, I think that would be the way to go. I haven't tried it myself but I heard removing the mirrors from the OEM brackets is a real bitch.

Actually it was very easy, all you do is remove the two inside screws (inside of the door) the whole mirror comes off the door and then you just replace it onto the bracket and tighten the two screws up- it's that easy, litterally took me 5 minutes a side and that's only because this was the first time on and I never read dirrections!!!! Very easy to do, even a cave man could do it!!!!!!

No, you don't need to remove the mirror from the OEM bracket. The whole OEM bracket goes mounted on the Dietech bracket, as if it were the door.

I bought a set of those to replace my RR brackets back when the released them. Nice brackets, awesome for driving with no doors. Definite quality there. The other stuff was a little, eh, shady...but these are great.
