These Steinjager Door Hinge Mounted Mirrors in black are for those of you that have a 2018 and up JL, that are looking for a mirror you can pop on your Jeep when you have the doors removed that's going to keep you safe and also keep you legal. These are going to install very easily onto your Jeep, bolting right onto that top door hinge and I'm going to show you how to do that in just a second.So when you're shopping for a trail-style mirror, a mirror to be installed on your Jeep when you don't have the doors on, you're going to find really three main categories. One is going to be this option where it drops into that top door hinge and the only downside to this version, if you want to call it that, is when you remove the doors and install them every time, you also have to remove or reinstall your mirrors. Another category of mirror movers is the version that mounts your mirror permanently up here on the A-Pillar of the Jeep. So it moves your factory mirror from the door, puts it up here on the A-Pillar all the time.The benefit there is you can just pop your doors off, there's no moving of mirrors. The downside is that they're not always the most visible, especially the one over on the passenger side. And the last category of mirrors is a quick-release style mirror and that's a mirror that would mount up here on the A-pillar. The bracket stays there all the time but the mirror itself comes on and off pretty easily, usually with a large plastic thumb screw. That way, you can pull that mirror off and have your doors with the factory mirrors in place on but when you take the door off, you pop your quick release mirror on.Now, the quick release mirror is pretty easy to install, the only downside to that version is that you always have that bracket on the Jeep. So aesthetically, some people don't like the way that looks. So as you can see, there are pros and cons to each of the three different options. If you like this option, if you're okay popping the mirrors in place every time you pull the doors off, this is going to be an incredibly high-quality version of these mirrors. I really like the way that this bend in the mirror almost follows this curve in the A-Pillar of the Jeep. It just looks like it's designed for this vehicle and in fact, it is. This is not one of those just general fits any year type pieces, this is designed specifically for your JL and you can just tell that looking at it.I also like the fact that it doesn't just have a single post that goes down into the top of your top door hinge, but it has a little bit of a slot on the back side in this piece that goes completely over the door hinge. And the benefit to that is when you're tightening down this nut, the whole thing isn't trying to spin on you. If you are driving and there's wind, which of course, there always is when you're driving, it's not going to try and spin this whole mechanism because of the way it slides completely over the top of the hinge. So that's really smart. Because it does slide over the hinge, they wanted to protect the paint on the outside of the hinge.So on the inside of the mirror, there's a really high-quality, high-density, almost rubberized plastic material in there to protect the paint, that does a nice job. The whole thing is actually covered in a rubberized material. So instead of just a paint or even a powder coat which does hold up very well, this is going to be that nice high-quality rubberized material, if it does catch any sort of stone throw or anything like that, you're still going to have plenty of protection, you're not going to end up with rust. The mirror itself is a plastic which generally, I'd prefer metal in most cases, but with something like a mirror, a plastic is actually a pretty big benefit because again, you have a lot of stone throws, a lot of stuff coming at this mirror and plastic is just going to hold up really well without the chance of rusting if the finish were to get chipped.This also comes with a small convex mirror that you can stick on the mirror itself to help with seeing your blind spots, everything is adjustable, it's just a very well thought-out, very well-built piece. Now, before all of those things that I mentioned, this is really a premium product, you are going to have to pay a premium price. For a pair of these mirrors, you're going to pay right around that $180 mark and that's going to be significantly more than some of the other mirrors out there. If you are somebody who likes a premium product, if you really like all of those big benefits that I just talked about, I think this is an excellent option for you.If you're somebody who's on a little bit more of a budget and you're not interested in some of those premium features I just mentioned, there are going to be a lot of other options out there. Just take a look at the site, there are some places you can get some mirrors for a little bit less. As I said before, these do install very simply onto your Jeep. Let me show you how to do it.For this installation, we needed a 12-millimeter and a 15-millimeter socket. We also used a couple of Torx sockets, a T40 and a T50. Although, if you have your factory Jeep toolkit, you won't need those. We used a small extension and a 3/8 socket driver. This is going to be a very easy one out of three wrench installation. The first step is, of course, removing your door so we're going to do that now. So the first thing we're going to do to remove the doors is remove the nuts on the bottom of each of the door hinges as it says labeled right on each of the hinges. This is a T50 Torx bit, and if you have your factory toolkit that comes with your JL, you can use that to get these nuts removed.We're just going to use a regular socket driver and a T50 Torx bit. With the door open, we can move to the inside. We're going to pull this trim panel off right here, and that will give us access to the wiring plug. Push the red lock up and pull the white plastic lever that will release the wiring for the door, and then we can release the vinyl strap that's on the metal hook here as well, the limiting strap. Get that out of the way. Now, the only thing that's holding the door in place is this metal limiting strap right here and we're going to remove that with a Torx bit as well. Put one hand on our door here just so it doesn't open all the way up on us and hit the front fender.So now the door is completely free, we can simply lift it off the hinges and set it aside in a safe place. With the door removed, we'll do a little bit of assembly and then get the mirror installed on the Jeep. So as you can see, this comes with the mirror separate from the mirror arm. It's very easy to get these two pieces bolted together. Now, these mirror arms are going to be side-specific. As you can see, there's a little bit of a slot in the bottom of the arm itself and that's designed to fit really well over that hinge. So this one here is going to be our driver side, that's the side we're working on. So we'll grab that and then the mirrors, they're not side-specific, so you can use whichever one on whichever side.So what we'll do here is just get the bolt and the washer, the flat washer, and the lock washer, unthread that from the mirror, go ahead and set it through the mirror arm, and then get it tightened down on the mirror itself. Now, we also have this small convex mirror that's also included in the kit. This just has a little bit of adhesive on the back side of it. We're going to peel that off and stick that on our driver side mirror as well and that's just going to help with seeing anything that might be in your blind spot.I'm gonna stick it down here in the bottom left-hand corner of the mirror, that's usually a pretty good spot for those. That's really going to do it for the installation. We'll unthread this larger nut on the bottom and then we'll move over to the Jeep and get the mirror installed on the hinge. Getting the mirror attached to the Jeep is a very simple process. You just set it over top of the top door hinge here. Now, it is going to be a little bit tight that first couple of times because there is a plastic rubberized membrane on the inside of the mirror, but you want that, that's what's protecting the paint on your door hinge itself.So you will have to give it a little bit of a push to get it on there. Once it's seated, you'll be able to take that nut that we just unthreaded and thread that on. Once that nut is tightened down, the last step is to adjust the mirror and you're done. The process on the passenger side is going to be exactly the same. So if you are looking for a very high-quality set of mirrors that you can pop on your Jeep when you have the doors off to stay legal and stay safe, I would recommend this option from Steinjager, and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.

Door Hinge Mirrors
These mirrors are very sturdy and don’t collapse as easily at higher speeds like others I have owned. I had them custom Painted white to match my Jeep. They look fantastic and are easy to install.Helpful (1)

Looks Great on Black Moab
These mirrors were easy to assemble and install. They fit snuggly over the top hinge and are anchored in place with a nut. The nut is conveniently sized so you can use the socket that comes with the Jeep tool kit. I will note the mirrors vibrate a lot when going over 50-55 MPH.Helpful (1)

Solid product but pricey
I researched other hinge mirrors but they all folded in when driven at speed. Because the sleeve goes over the hinge and is tightened with a bolt this mirror stays in position. There is some small vibration but very little due to the solid arm construction. I’ve driven over 40mph several times and the sleeve prevents any movement. I also like that these mirrors are higher then most, about the same height as the door mirrors so they are right where you expect them to be when you look. I only see 1 drawback, the price. But I still highly recommend it.Helpful (1)

Steinjager “door off” mirrors
I tried several bolt-on-hinge mirrors—all with the same problem... drive any faster than about 45mph, and they fold up against the side of the Jeep defeating the purpose entirely. These slip over the hinge with a cutout that prevents the main arm from rotating backward. I’ve been on the highway with them at 89mph, and if they’re tightened properly, they don’t budge. Plus, once you have them lined up and tightened (at the mirror housing up top), they don’t need to be readjusted every time you pop them on (every weekend for me). Why 4 stars? What’s the down side? They’re made well enough, but are crazy expensive. Also, the actual mirror part of the assembly does shake pretty good at speed—still safe; still usable; but not rock solid at speed. I added a washer with a rubber side from Home Depot before threading the bottom bolt on each to protect the hinge, but that’s not necessary at the top portion of the hinge as the slip-on mount contains a decent amount of rubber.Helpful (3)

These mirrors are a perfect fit on my Rubicon. They are easy to assemble and install. The fitting of the base over the entire hinge is solid and prevents the mirrors from rotating at higher speeds and in windy conditions. I really like the design of the post with the bend that follows the shape of the front pillar. Highly recommend.Helpful (1)
Does the mirrors shake tuning down the highway?
Yes, being as they have one mounting point they will likely shake a bit while driving.
Is that red material in the arm to avoid scratching the paint ? Does it just slip on and bolt up ?
The red bushing is designed to protect the paint and provide a secure fit. These will slide directly over the door hinge bracket and bolt back on.
