Leaving your Wrangler JL’s doors at home and enjoying the delight of open-air driving is an experience like no other. But leaving your doors behind leaves you without side-view mirrors and can put you in violation of the law in most states. Rugged Ridge Trail Mirrors provide a simple bolt-on mirror solution that is not only highly-functional, but looks great AND keeps you legal. Our JL Trail Mirrors feature a long adjustable mirror arm for greater visibility and an innovative new jam nut design for speedy installation and removal. Each mirror assembly is finished with a tough satin black powder coat finish and includes all the necessary hardware for installation. Choose from a traditional rectangular mirror head or a round mirror for a more retro appearance. Rugged Ridge Trail Mirrors fit the left OR the right side of the vehicle and are available in singles and pairs. Patent Pending.
As soon as I tightened up the arm, it stripped and will not stay on
This is a decent mirror, mounts easily and so far I have no vibration issues with the mounts. What I do have an issue with is that the product description failed to indicate that these are convex mirrors and therefore are no good for use when trying to hit a specific aiming point when backing up.
1.0Can't get them to stay in placenitrite
First time using these and had all sorts of issues. For those who are familiar with JK mirror brackets, these suck.
1. They will not stay in the right position for very long and when you decide to tighten them up, they are way too easy to strip the threads.
2. If you manage to keep them in place, removing them requires you to take the mirror off of the post.
Bottom line... after using these for about 2 hours, I have 2 stripped parts and have pieced together something to allow me to 4WP and get a different system.

1.0please don't buy these!
As a mirror, they work only to reflect light. When installed and used, they vibrate badly, they do not stay tight, and they barely function. They do, however meet the requirement of having "mirrors". The nut rugged ridge supplies to secure these to your hood hinge is made out of some kind of pot metal covered in paint. So they stretch once you install them to spec, and never stay tight on the hood hinge stud. They do stay tight on the mirror arm, so you can't really remove it easily. The mirror arms are fine, the mirror is pretty much fine. The passenger one is near impossible to aim in a fashion similar to stock. I wouldn't recommend buying these even just to meet the legal requirement of having a mirror. You'd be better off taping a small mirror somewhere.

5.0Easy & simple
Super easy and quick install. At high speeds there is a small whistle sound. No big deal. Does the job. Clean look. Easy on and off.
