Quadratec Mirror Mover Review

I bought Quadratec's mirror mover brackets for 28 plus shipping so I could keep my mirrors on with the doors off. Installed easily and look great, but there is one major problem. The brackets are not a good permanent fix.

With the mirrors moved up approximately 5 inches into the new brackets, the passenger side mirror is no longer in view from the driver seat! With the doors off, I can see the mirror just fine, but with the doors on, the miror is not in the drivers line of sight. Quadratec suggested that I use it as a temporary solution, for only when the doors are off, but that's quite a pain (I'd have to carry around a ratchet wrench and socket.) Maybe a wing nut would work instead of using the nut, however, I don't think i'd feel safe with my mirrors only held on by a 'hand tightened' nut.

All in all, a good looking product that is less than functional. (but still makes my jeep legal!)

I bought similar brackets made by Warrior products.

Same problem.

I just learned to deal with only having one mirror while the doors are on. Not that bad after you get used to it.

pricey at $90 but definitely worth checking out... http://www.skidplates.com/TJ-MRB.htm... according to skid row, the passenger side is moved forward and can be seen thru the windshield with the doors on. this is similar to the CJ style mirrors.

My buddy bought the same brackets and has the same problem. He carries a small ratchet and socket with his Jeep like Flyusaf2002 mentioned.

After having them for a little over six months his only other problem is that the brackets are rusting, even though they are supposedly powdercoated.

beachtaco, thanks for the link, I will point my friend to it.
