Mirror relocator with light and CB mount.

Ok I know a few/many of you have built mirror relocators.
I like to build my own items for my jeep when i can.
So I decided to take a stab at it.

What I did was measure my A-Pillar and design on cad what
I wanted. Then me and a coworker made a prototype to see if
it would work. I was happy with the way it looked.

I contacted a local shop that had a water jet and had them
cut the parts out so they were all the same since all I had
at my disposal was a band saw.

Brought them back to my work shop and welded them up
drilled my holes, primed & painted, and finally mounted them.

You will notice in the pictures that there is a small hole in
between the mirror and light, that is for my cb antenna's
but I have not decided which ones I want yet so I have not
finished drilled them yet.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Looks good, can you actually see out of the pass side mirror? I had a set and the pass side was useless if the doors were on

Thanks!!
Well I moved them outboard about 1" more than the ones you can buy from the stores. I can see enough to change lanes but not much else.
I am going to get the small stick on mirrors for that side and put int the bottom corner to help with actually being able to see out of it.

I really like that bracket. I always wanted to put my spots up high but my Kongo Cage took up that area. Nice

Hold onto something... Quick!!!

This is the view I have out the passenger side mirror, without moving. It is usable.

I'm interested to see how the CB mount works out. Will that give you a good enough RF ground to get it working really well?

is there enough room to allow the windshield to drop still? or would it make contact with the light?

Thanks all!!
I am interested in the ground also. As for the windshield I have never dropped mine but I am sure it would hit the lights, I believe I will have to check that out next time the top comes off.
