I ordered these mirrors to replace the original mirrors on my 97' Jeep Wrangler; and so that I would have mirrors on my Jeep when I removed the doors. I'm required to have rear and side view mirrors by a restriction on my license. However, after installing the mirrors I found them to look improper, impede the doors from opening, and I was unable to see the passenger side mirror with the doors on. I tried to return the mirrors, but was unable. I put the mirrors on the shelf until I came up with a way to reuse them
I decided to modify the mounts on the mirrors and make lemonade out of lemons.
Step 1: Original Packaging
Step 2: The Plan
Step 3: Modify the Plastic Mounts
I needed to make the flat, and luckily the radius of the plastic mount is larger than the distance from the Jeep body to the center of the hinge socket. I held the plastic mount over the hinge socket and marked where the edge of the socket appeared through the bolt hole. This told me how much material I would need to remove. For my installation I found that I needed to remove 3/32 of plastic. I then used my Dremel to sand away the plastic.
Step 4: Modify Mirror Arm
Step 5: Putting It Together
Once mounted you will need to bend and move the mirrors into place so you can properly see. Don't worry the area where the mirror attaches to the arm is flat and thick, it can easily stand up to some bending. Just go slow.
Step 6: Notes and Video
As well here is a video showing the mirrors in action and how much shake they have.
