    Rugged Ridge Trail Mirrors = Cheap Chinese Garbage

    What a disappointment. Got the mirrors in and took all my doors off today. Went to put the mirrors on and they are the most wobbly loose pieces of junk I could have possibly bought. I didnít even leave the garage with them on and they were non functional. These friggin Chinese kids canít get anything right anymore. Doors back on and these pieces of shit back in the box headed back to them.

    Any recommendations for some quality mirrors to use when running without doors?

    Sorry to hear that.

    We run the Quadratec ones on our JK. I'd imagine they fit the JL the same.

    I have been using them for a couple weeks now and no issues. Well, besides the fact that the passenger side is worthless. I have to move around in my seat to use it properly.

    Maybe I got a dud. The sleeved nut that threads onto the stud was loose. Even you tighten the jam nut all the way the stem just flops around.

    I ordered some CMM mirrors, a little (a lot) expensive but they seemed like the best quality option out there and made in the USA. IíLL report back after their installed.

    If you have no doors on and arenít aware of another vehicle in your blind spot please turn in your license. Otherwise mirrors are only for not getting a ticket.

    agreed. mirrors are no substitute for an actual glance. CCM makes a bolt with a nob for a ram mount. pricey but looks like it works well. anyone have it???

    Did you tighten the three screws on the back of the mirror once you got them positioned where you wanted them? They appear to be the same ball-mounting style that I have on my Peterbilt. When they get wobbly, usually you just need to retorque those screws.
