Help me decide which mirror brackets

2010 Unlimited Rubicon in deep water blue pearl. I need to solve my mirror problem when my doors are off. It is down to two choices.

1. Olympic 4x4 Products 117-124 - Olympic 4X4 Products Safari Mirrors for 76-10 Jeep® CJ-5, CJ-7 & CJ-8 Scrambler, Wrangler YJ, TJ, JK & Unlimited - Quadratec

or

2. Rugged Ridge 11025.04 - Rugged Ridge Mirror Relocation Bracket in Black for 07-10 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimted JK - Quadratec

As far as 2 goes, I already tested my factory mirrors and they release and come apart just fine. I am concerned with the complaints of vibration on 1. My TJ had brackets and I just used those, even with the doors on.

I like these the best.
They mount in almost the same location as the stock ones and can see on the passenger side.
Die-Tech Off-road Mirror Brackets
Also you don't have to take the head off the stock mirrors.

I really like the Relocation brackets because they look factory. However you can not see the pass. side mirror when the full doors are on. The driver side mirror is still fine.

For a JK? Where, pray tell, did you get them.

I called my dealer and all they were on about was a $3000 kit for half doors.

I just got these ditech mirror brackets as well. This is my first "mod" and love them. They are very good quality, easy to move the mirror back and forth imo. No passenger side mirror problems.

no affiliation, but they are local to me so I saved on shipping. I paid 2 grand for the 2 door version complete with mirrors and power locks.

No offense intended to the Die-Tech guys, but dang those things are ugly. But hey, we's all different. Reminds me of a time I wore a new pair of shoes to work and an old guy I worked with said he hoped they were really comfortable shoes because they sure were ugly.

I have the RR brackets. They look OEM to me, but with the passenger door on the mirror on that side is very difficult to use. And that's being generous. Wish I had the money to buy a different set and compare.
