Key Features. Driving around without a rearview mirror, or with one that's broken or doesn't stay in place is just plain dangerous. This Rugged Ridge Rear View Mirror Kit makes installling a replacement a snap. It comes with the button, or the metal piece that attaches to the windshield, plus the right kind of glue. Just like the stock setup, there's a night setting you activate by flipping the tab at the bottom of the mirror, avoiding getting blinded by other vehicles' bright headlights. Installation is incredibly simple and the mirror needs little maintenance.
Construction. The housing for the rear view mirror is made of plastic, just like the stock part, and it's durable enough to handle regular adjustments. It attaches to the windshield via the button, or a stainless steel bracket piece that's made to be incredibly tough. The mirror measures 9.5 inches wide and 2.5 inches tall. The included glue or adhesive is specially formulated just for attaching metal to glass, so you don't have to worry about the rear view mirror falling off or wobbling later.
Installation. This is one of the easier jobs to do on a Jeep, with absolutely no tools of any kind required. Before you start, you do need to clean the inside of the windshield where the mirror assembly goes really well, that way the glue works as well as possible. You squirt some glue onto an included applicator, then spread it onto the area of the windshield where you're planning to attach the mirror. Then you press the button in place for a minute, letting the glue set. After letting it cure for a few mintues, you hook the end of the mirror assembly to the bracket setup on the button and the job is done. Plan on the whole process taking at most an hour.
Application. This Rugged Ridge Rear View Mirror Kit is compatible with each 1987-2018 Jeep Wrangler model.
