Reviews for Rugged Ridge 11025.18 Rectangular Quick Release Mirror Kit in Textured Black for 97-18 Jeep Wrangler TJ & JK
Love product, no vibration, rattling, or whistling. Easy on and off!
Must secure VERY TIGHTLY to prevent rotation/movement. Does have whistling sound at times as described with other mirrors.
Good price, simple install. It works on both bolt locations for JK (despite what the instructions suggest) which is great because my upper pair are occupied by a roof rack system. They didn't fold in for me at speed and only vibrated minimally. But for the price and freedom of going doorless, this is a very good option!
MUCH BETTER THAN THE HINGE MOUNTED TYPES OUT THERE. AND CAN SEE THE PASSENGER SIDE MIRROR WITHOUT ANY ISSUES! GREAT PRODUCT!
Sturdy do not vibrate, hard to adjust without bending the back of the mirrors. Would be nice if they were magnified some. Easy to install
These are absolutely terrible mirrors. I bought them to be legal with my doors off, but I also wanted usable side view mirrors. Unfortunately, one is completely unusable as it flops around like a bobblehead, so I had to glue it in place. Both bolts that connect the mounts to the A-pillar rusted within minutes of being taken out of the box, the bolts that go through the mount rusted after one day, and the joints on the back of the mirrors where the arm meets the mirror housing, although supposedly stainless steel, both rusted within a week of being installed. These mirrors are pretty expensive for something that lasted less than month before I'm throwing them in the trash.
I experienced the "whistling" issue mentioned by others. I was able to solve it by putting electrical tape around the seams/joints on the back of the mirror (blocking the inbound wind when driving forward), but it's silly that a $60-70 product sucks that much.
These are much better than the usual relocation kit that utilize the stock mirrors. While the view of the passenger side mirror is still obstructed, it’s not nearly as bad as the stock relocation kit. I found that orienting the mirrors horizontally rather than vertically helped out quite a bit with this. These are easy to install, and yes you do have to make sure the nuts are pretty tight because they can be easily moved if you hit a branch. Cons: they are flat mirrors so you’re not gonna get the same type of wider view that you’ll get from a standard concave mirror. Yes, these do whistle about 40 miles an hour, but hey dude, you drive a jeep right? Because they are mounted higher than standard mirrors, frankly I think they look kind of cool as they have an aggressive stance
Love these mirrors! They vibrate very little and stay in place at highway speed. I like how I can actually see out the passenger mirror and not having the dash in the way. Installing was easy except the bolts that came with them to secure the bracket onto the A Pillar, were not right. The thread pitch was too fine. I just ended up using the hardware from the Jeep. The head of the bolt is taller than the supplied flat head bolt, so you hit your knuckle a little when trying to tighten down the knob. But it’s not even a big deal since the mirrors are awesome. They do whistle and the radio doesn’t drown it out when cranked. I will be running a bead of RTV around the back of the rubber trim of the mirror.
Installed them last night. They were very easy to install (probably about 20-30 mins) and most of that time was just lining up the mirrors. So far they seem pretty solid. I haven't noticed them moving in on me as I drive the interstate, but I tightened the knobs with a wrench to make sure they were snug.
