    Review & Installation 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.

      Great for when you have your doors off.

      My 1998 Jeep TJ's doors strike these mirrors but removing the doors eliminates this problem. The cure is to get door mounted mirriors my next and last step.

      greta for doors off

      This is a nice mirror for doors completely off and easy to install. Yes, it vibrates when your going down the highway, but you can still see what's behind you. best for grocery getting in town traffic, I would buy again.

      No shake

      Bolt on nice and tight. No vibration or wind noise. Good for the money. I used a paint marker and made an index point on the bracket so when removed you can put them right back into place.

      Quick Release Mirrors.

      Easy to install. Hold the position well. They do whistle, but I think it is to be expected.

      2 2014 Wrangler - Jak123

      Good price, poor quality.

      At the beginning of this summer, I was looking for some mirrors to put on when the doors came off. I didn't want to spend the $70 that most of these types of mirrors cost, so when I saw these for the price they were (I think around $35) I ordered them. I wasn't expecting top-notch quality. The thumbscrews to lock them in place don't really get tight enough. I had to tighten them to their max with pliers. Even then, they weren't exactly locked in place. Another thing that I suppose you have to deal with with all of these types of mirrors is adjustments. Especially the passenger side mirror, I had to sit in the driver's seat, get out and adjust it as necessary. Overall, I will continue to use these because they were cheap, but if I had the option again to buy these or ones that were $20 more, I would spend a little more for better quality.

      Great mirror for the price

      Love these mirrors for the price, but the mounts whistle while driving which gets old rather fast. Other than that super rad mirror!

    Will this mirror work with a Raxiom windshield light bar mount?

    • The Rugged Ridge Quick Release Textured Black Rectangular Mirrors will work with the Raxiom Windshield Light Bar Mount. You may just need longer bolts.

    Is anyone else having an issue where the mirror arm wants to fold in while driving due to wind? I have it as tight as I can get it and it still slips.

    • Unfortunately, this is not an unheard of issue with any mirror like this. I would suggest adding a washer, as that can sometimes keep it from slipping so much.
