It's nice to ride around in your Jeep without the doors, letting the wind flow through and being able to get in and out without any hassle. The one problem is you need a spot to put your side mirrors, and that's exactly what this Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Relocation Kit is all about. A genius design uses a custom bracket and anchor points already existing in the windshield frame, so you don't have to do any extensive modifications to make this setup work. Long arms ensure you can see well on both sides of your rig, so you're not running into things on a trail or the road. Filler plates that can be painted are also included in the kit.
The stainless steel construction for the mirror assembly looks great, resists any kind of corrosion and is durable enough to handle the rigors of serious trail runs. Thanks to the quick adjustable knob, you can take off and put the mirrors back on in a hurry, and the system is simple to use. Each mirror mounts to a stainless steel bracket, which attaches via included hardware. A polished finish is present for all of the stainless steel, giving it a classic look.
You'll need a socket wrench and Torx screwdriver/wrench to successfully install the Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Relocation kit. Step by step instructions with pictures are available, which is a big help with understanding the process better. Plan on the job taking between one or two hours, maybe more, depending on your mechanical aptitude. You'll need to install the mounting bracket on the windshield, then anchor the relocation hardware to it and make adjustments. It's a straightforward job, but you should take your time to ensure everything is bolted down tightly.
Rugged Ridge designed this stainless steel Quick Release Mirror Relocation Kit to be used on all 1997-2018 Jeep Wrangler TJ & JK models.
