Hey, guys. So today I'm here with the RT Off-Road Mirror Relocation Brackets, fitting all 2007 to 2018 JK Wranglers. So everybody knows that taking off the doors of your Wrangler is what it's all about. However, when you do that, you are sacrificing your mirrors. Now, I always recommend mirrors on your Wrangler for safety, even when your doors are off, and some states even do require it by law, so your mirrors are very important. There are a couple of ways that you can accommodate for that. There are options on the site available for mirrors that will insert into your door pins. There are options available that will have a quick release bracket on the A-Pillar, and you can pop on your extra mirror whenever you take the door off, while still keeping your factory mirror on your door. And then there are options like this one for a full relocation kit. Now, this option by RT Off-Road for the full relocation kit is going to be your most affordable option, and I personally like how this is set up. Now, compared to some of those other choices that I did mention, I personally think that this is going to be very solid over those. I think this is going to look really nice. It's going to clean up the side of the door, give you a sleek contrast to your Wrangler, if you do have a colored Wrangler, and it's going to still offer you some really good visibility. So these are going to run you about $40, being your most affordable option, like I mentioned before. Other options that are designed like this will be a little bit more expensive, just because they may be made with higher-quality materials. They may be made by more premium brands, but, personally, I think if you're looking for the most affordable and the easiest option to get a relocation bracket for safety, and to relocate them to your A-Pillar, this is definitely going to be the kit for you. Now, install is going to be a very light two out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You're going to need a couple of hand tools to get the job done, so speaking of the install, let's jump into that now. The tools that I used for my install were an impact wrench, a rubber mallet or a dead blow, a 3/8 inch drive ratchet, a Phillips-head screwdriver, a 12-millimeter socket, and a T40 Torx bit. So our first step is to remove the mirror from our base here. Now, if you have power or heated mirrors, you will have to either cut the wiring, and sacrifice your power and heated mirrors in order to relocate them, or what you can do is take off the reflective portion of the mirror and unplug everything. However, it is going to be pretty difficult to put it back together, so it is up to you. Now, I'm going to be using a 12-millimeter socket to remove the hardware that's securing the top piece of our mirror down to our bottom piece. So at this point, you're probably asking yourself, "Why do I have a hammer?" We actually have to help the mirror get out of the bottom portion. It does not just come off. You will have to tap it out, and this is very common. So grab a screwdriver and a small dead blow, and you can put the screwdriver in where your hardware was, and try to grab as much of a handle on the top portion of the mirror as you can, and we can lightly tap it out. So make sure you do have a handle on that. Now, it will try to come flying out of there. Even grab a friend if you can. You don't want to break your mirror. So what you're going to do now is grab a T40 Torx bit, and we're going to remove these two bolts that are holding in our mirror base. So our kit comes with a new fill-in plug to cover up that hole there when you remove this base, so it's going to clean up the look of the side of the Jeep for us. Make sure you have a handle on the mirror base, and then remove that. Then that will slide off very easily, and we can install our brackets and our filler plug. So we're going to start with our filler plate. I do like the fact that this kit comes with one because, as you can see, it looks very unfinished, and there are open holes that are susceptible to dirt, mud, debris getting inside of the door and damaging anything inside of there. Now, these are made of a steel construction with a nice black powder coat finish on it. That's going to resist any rust or corrosion on the metal underneath. And I also do like the fact that it comes with a gasket material. This is going to prevent any scratching or any surface damage to happen to your doors if you ever want to go back to your stock setup. So these are also side-specific, so be sure to test fit them after you've taken off your mirrors. You're going to want to make sure that the shorter portion is at the top. You can insert that. Let that hang out, and go inside the door to secure it down with our factory hardware. So after these are threaded in, we can tighten it down with that T40 Torx bit. So with the same T40 Torx bit, we're going to remove the bottom two Torx bolts on our A-Pillar. So now we can line up our mirror relocation bracket and thread in our factory hardware. Now, you will have one at the top, and then, in the inside of this bracket here, you will have the other hole, so make sure that is lined up and seated properly. I do like how this lines up with the A-Pillar. So now we can grab that T40 Torx bit and a ratchet and tighten that down. So our final step is to install the top portion of our mirror. We're going to reinstall it with the same factory bolt and I'm going to tighten that down with a 12-millimeter socket.So that's going to wrap it up for my review and install.

Gets the job done, but....
Sturdy construction and easy installation, but view to the passenger side mirror is obstructed by the dash panel due to location. Mirror was relocated though.Helpful (6)

These are a great to stay legal with the doors off. Pretty easy to install. Look great. Only downside is that with the door on I cannot see the passenger side mirror. That has more to do with my height so I'm not taking a star away.Helpful (6)

Cool for going doorless but.....
Yeah this is a great set up for using the factory mirror housings on the A pillar. My issue and I know others have had it is that the passenger mirror is 3/4 blocked by the door when it’s on and about half blocked by the A/C vent when the door is off. Cool look but get ready to turn your head to check that blind spot.Helpful (6)

Solid, but some issues
I just installed a set of the relocation brackets on my 2018 2-door JK. The product was as described, and came in a timely fashion. Now, down to the pros/cons. Pros: * Sturdy construction, and there is a cushioned backing on the plates to protect the Jeep's finish. * I like having the ability to take the doors off at any time, and then not worry about where a spare mirror is so that I have to install one each time. By moving the mirror location I always have the mirrors on. Cons: * Passenger side mirror is difficult to see, and almost non-existent when the doors are on. With the doors off you see about 75 of the passenger side mirror. With the doors on, you knock it down to about 1/3 of the mirror is visible. * The driver's mirror is better, but I have it pushed as far to the outer edge so that I can use it. There's no more room for adjustment. * Because I've relocated the mirrors, my rain cover does not fit as well. There is a small gap down the A-pillar for rain to get in. Ultimately, the product works just like it says, and is built solidly. You just need to decide if this is what you're looking for.Helpful (6)

Great for when the doors are off
Installs easy. I keep the brackets on all year long.Helpful (7)
will the stock doors hit the mirrors if the relocation is left in place?
No, the stock doors will not hit if you kept the mirrors in the relocated.
Hi with the mirror relocation brackets do they work with the power mirror and heated ? Because the jeep came with this feature
Hello, unfortunately the Rough Trail Mirror Relocation Brackets - Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) will not work with the power and heated mirrors, you would have to get the Left Side Replacement Mirror - Textured Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) which you can find on our website here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/left-hand-mirror-textured-jk-mcj13l.html and also the Right Side Replacement Mirror - Textured Black (07-17 Wrangler JK) which you can find here: http://www.extremeterrain.com/right-hand-mirror-textured-jk-mcj13r.html
