Just because you have a little older Jeep Wrangler doesn't mean you can't add some nice modern conveniences. This Rugged Ridge Heated Door Mirror Kit is a great way to deal with cold winter mornings, because all you have to do is flip and switch, and frost or snow will just melt right off the glass. Bright LED lights integrated into the mirror arms work as turn signals so other drivers can see which way you're going, preventing accidents. The LEDs also work as parking lights, boosting visibility if you need to stop on the side of the road or anywhere else. People will definitely admire the styling of these mirrors, and the conveniences they provide.
Like stock Jeep Wrangler side mirrors, the housings are constructed out of heavy plastic that can withstand the elements and some heavy use on roads as well as trails. The plastic is also UV treated, meaning it can sit out in direct sunlight without cracking or fading, which is perfect. The mirrors are made to work on full and half steel doors, but machined door hinges might be necessary to make it work. All mounting hardware, connectors and wires for installation are included in the kit.
This is definitely not a job for a novice, and you should set aside a couple of hours or longer, depending on your level of experise with wiring. Depending on your Wrangler's setup, you might need to install upper door hinges that are machined to have a proper mounting surface. You'll need a drill, screwdriver, socket wrench, wire strippers and needle nose pliers to complete this job. A detailed installation and wiring guide is available, complete with diagrams to help with any confusion.
This Heated Door Mirror Kit from Rugged Ridge is made to work on 1987-2002 Jeep Wrangler models (YJ/TJ).
