    Review & Install Video

    I'm Ryan from ExtremeTerrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Kit, fitting all 1997 to 2016 Wranglers. This kit is available in both the rectangular mirrors that you see here and round mirrors, and it's also available in two different finishes, either gloss black or textured. You can also purchase these mirrors individually or as a pair. This mirror kit is for those of you who want to take the doors off of your Jeep but also want to remain both legal and safe by retaining your rear-view mirrors. Now, there are kits out there that will permanently move your factory mirrors from your doors to your A pillars and I really like those kits because they save you the additional step every time you take the doors off of installing or removing your quick release mirror. However, if you're somebody who has a newer JK that has either the power mirrors or heated mirrors, you'll lose that functionality by moving the mirror to the A pillar, so if you're somebody in that situation, I definitely recommend these. I especially like these mirrors over some of the other quick release mirror kits on the market because these are really solidly built. Some of the issues that you can have with a mirror like this, especially at highway speed, is a vibration that makes it really hard to see behind you. These mirrors are nice and solid, so that won't be an issue for you. On the back of each of these mirrors is a ball joint that is fully adjustable, so you can tighten it down, and that's going to keep the mirrors from moving when you hit highway speed. The way that the arm is designed and the way it attaches to the quick release bracket means it's going to attach really tightly and, again, it's not going to vibrate, especially at highway speed. Because the arms and the mirrors themselves are fully adjustable, you're going to be able to see the mirror in any situation. One of the drawbacks to moving the factory mirror to the A pillar is it can make the passenger mirror a little bit difficult to see. You won't have that issue with this kit. This kit is designed to be completely bolt-on and installs really easily. In fact, it uses a lot of the factory hardware which makes it even easier. The first step in the installation is to install the bracket that will stay on the Jeep. In order to do that, you have to remove two bolts from the factory windshield hinge. Now, we found that ours had some Locktite on them, so it might be helpful to run a die and tap through the bolt and bolt hole to make sure they're nice and clean before you reinstall those bolts. That will decrease the likelihood of you cross-threading one of those bolts. Once you have the bracket installed on the Jeep, you install the mirror onto the mirror arm, and then put the mirror arm in the quick release bracket. The whole installation shouldn't take you more than 30 minutes and the only tool you'll need is a socket to attach the mirror to the mirror arm and a Torx bit to remove those factory bolts. I think this kit is worth every dollar that you have to pay for it because of how solidly it's built. You can get two of these mirrors for right around $50 and in my opinion they're worth that. I would much rather have a mirror mover kit that permanently moves my factory mirror from my door to my A pillar, again, just so you don't have that extra step every time you take your doors on and off. However, I'm a TJ guy, so I don't have to worry about power mirrors. If I had a JK that had power mirrors that were heated, I definitely wouldn't want to lose that functionality and I would be installing a set of these on my Jeep. So if you're somebody who likes to take the doors off your Jeep for that open air driving experience, but you want to remain legal and safe, and you don't mind the extra step of taking the mirrors on and off every time you take the doors on and off, I think this is a well-built and fairly priced kit. So, that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Kit, fitting all 1997 to 2016 Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

    Quick Release. Get ready for the warm season with the Rugged Ridge Quick Release Mirror Kit in Textured Black. This rectangle mirror kit installs in moments and provides an easy on and easy off option that won't require bringing out the tool box every time you want to take the doors off.

      Mirror Review

      Quality was a little less than I expected. I thought would be a little better quality since I ordered individual mirror over the set of two, surprised over quality. Works good, must tighten screw pretty good to hold mirror.

      Review from Barricade Quick Release Textured Rectangular Mirrors - Black (07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK)

      I now have mirrors when doors are off..

      These mirrors are great !! No complaints about them at all. The only thing that I might change is moving them from the lower mount position to the upper one. When they are on the lower one and you are putting your doors back on, you hands can potentially get pinched between the door and the bracket.

      A bit of whistling, and you have to tighten door straps so they don’t hit the mirrors every time.

      What whistle?

      They look great on mine. To answer a few of what I see on the reviews: 1. They whistle but only in complete silence lol. Turn the radio up or sing to yourself and you won't even notice! 2. Yes, you can keep them on with your doors and stock mirrors on. Looks weird but you can do it. 3. They vibrate a tad but no more than what you would expect. Don't over tighten because they will still vibrate. Buy them now!

      No problem with these mirrors. Work and look great. Do have to tighten them up to keep them from moving at high speeds. Wind whistles around rubber grommet though, easy fix with some clear silicon.

      Just OK

      I re used my bolts because theirs are the wrong thread pitch. tighten the three screws on the back of the mirror, they are loose when you get them. Pinch bolt takes pliers to get tight enough. Cheap, Cheap, Cheap

      Great mirrors

      These mirrors work great and look great. I would have given them 5 stars if it weren't for the fact that they whistle as you drive down the road. Not loud enough to hear it with the windows up, but these mirrors ARE for going doorless, right? Unfortunate annoyance.

      Like but had to modify

      I couldn't get the bolt tight enough w my hand and at highway speeds the mirrors folds back. When I'm putting them on/off 1x a week it was a big pain to have mirrors that I couldn't use outside of town. I still liked the idea and design of these mirrors so I drilled a hole through it and put a cotter pin in it to secure the mirror angle while still using the bolt to tighten. Now it's a quick on/off and they don't budge at highway speeds.

      My mirror

      The mirrors requires more than just thumb strength to tighten. That’s OK. My mirror tends to whistle in the wind. I installed a convex mirror on the bottom, just so I can get full coverage. The mirror is a must-have if you’re going doors off and it looks great.

      Falls over at high speeds and does really make an annoying whistling sound. I read the reviews and when I got the product it was true...the whistle is there. I will return mine for sure.

      Hit or miss

      These mirrors are hit and miss. I have one mirror that I got for Christmas works great. I ordered the second one a few months later and installed both at the same time. The newer one I bought and installed doesn’t stay tight enough and folds in at about 45 mph. They do whistle but as all jeep owners know they aren’t luxury cars and can get quite loud. After all driving without your doors on you already know it’s going to be a noisy ride.
