I just bought some of these used and would love it to see them [or just the brackets] mounted since I don't have any instructions. I did go to quadratec but they don't have a mounting/instruction PDF for them.

Also, did you consider just attaching a small convex mirror to the flat passenger mirror instead of replacing the whole thing?

Thanks,

John

I think it works well. I have a hardtop and a 5 year old so I run with the front doors off with rear doors and hardtop on a lot. It's hard to see when changing lanes and these help a lot. I had the RR relo brackets on my old 2 dr JK and they sucked. I couldn't see crap outta the passenger side mirror at all. These stick on mirrors work well and I'm legal in FL. It's also less of a hassle when I pull the doors. Nothing else to install or forget to install. If they fall off, I'll get new ones. Have to admit tho, I do keep the vents angled so if they do fall off, they don't fall inside the vent when I'm parked fully enclosed and it gets hot.

4wheel parts sells a relocation braket that is like $50 dollars, easy to install. Street legal. But when the doors are on its a little challengeing to see out passenger mirror, just added a little fish eye mirror to top outside corner of passenger mirror... works great!

I guess I just want a bracket that keeps the factory mirrors and just relocates them to te body. The catch I've been reading is they become almost useless once the doors are back on.

And I contemplate the motorcycle mirror, actually bought one. But it just looks to goofy to me.
The driver's side mirror is still perfectly usable with the doors on. The passenger side is almost completely hidden by the A-pillar, so yeah it's useless. In my state, I don't need both to be street legal, so I left the passenger mirror on the door. If my doors are off, then so's the top and I can just turn my head so I don't even need it.

I went to my local Harley dealer and picked up two motorcycle mirrors, when I asked the guy at the counter knew exactly what mirrors I would need, think it ran me 60 bucks all together, just drop the mirror stem into the top hinge and throw on a washer and bolt. Street legal too.

Realize this isn't a relocation, but...

$11 for mirror at Pep Boys, and $2 for the hardware at my local hardware store:

Considerable vibration, but I can see objects in the mirror, and it keeps me legal while my doors are off.

Here's my choice. They look clean, are very functional, not too expensive, easy on off...

I think these are Rugged Ridge. Mount to A-pillar.They use the same mirrors it came with, and have a blank to put over the hole in the door. I use those fish eyes to reduce the blind spots you'll have regardless of where the mirrors are.
Sorry, only recent picture I could find:
