Jeep Wrangler Copies Ford Bronco With New Doors-Off Mirror Kit

Sponsored Links

Ford designers spent a lot of time studying the Jeep Wrangler during the 2021 Ford Bronco development process, and they sought to correct everything owners hated about their Wrangler. That included the fact that the doors weren’t able to be stored in the vehicle once removed, as well as side mirrors that are attached to the doors – not the vehicle itself. And now, even though Jeep tried to tout its side mirror problem as an actual benefit, it is now offering owners a new solution for relocating them to the vehicle itself.

That solution is a doors-off mirror kit, sold through Mopar parts as an add-on accessory, that moves the side mirrors from the doors to the Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator itself. This means that when Wrangler owners want to take off their doors and enjoy some fresh air, they can do so without giving up the benefit of having side mirrors to check their six. Funny thing is, the Ford Bronco comes from the factory with its side mirrors attached to the body – no aftermarket kit required.

Jeep’s doors-off mirror kit consists of two extra side mirrors that can be easily attached when the doors are removed. Mopar’s doors-off mirrors are specifically engineered and tested to original-equipment standards, providing a production-equivalent field of view with minimal vibration. Each mirror in the kit attaches to a cowl-end cap bolt and the upper door hinge. In addition, a custom thumb wheel-nut-clamp is used as an attachment point to the door flange.

Mounting brackets are finished with an anti-corrosion undercoat and black powder-coat finish. Mirrors include a built-in break-away feature that prevents damage while in tight spaces on the road or trail. Installation can be performed with a T40 bit wrench, which is included with all new Jeep Wrangler and Gladiator models.

The new Mopar doors-off mirror kit sells for an MSRP of $295, and is available for current-generation (2018-current) Jeep Wrangler and (2020-current) Jeep Gladiator models. And it’s likely not the last Jeep-produced solution we’ll see that addresses a problem with the vehicle that the new Bronco has already addressed.

  1. Let’s be honest doors of mirror kit is a minor thing considering Found On Road Dead knocked off everything else and still DNF at Baja way to go blue oval still waiting the recalls on this pos

    • Yes, mirror relocation brackets have been around for some time. The point here is that Jeep just introduced this kit for the JL mere months after the Bronco debuted with mirrors mounted on the body, not the doors.

  2. “JeEP cOpIEs FoRD…”

    Ford wishes. Freaking Old Rebuilt Dodge will NEVER be king of that hill, especially with that IFS crap but good try.

  3. So jeep copies one thing on the bronco…and even that has been available for yearsssss as stated above, and that generates an article? The whole bronco going back to the inception was a copy of jeep, portly done in the last 40 years. Ford making jeeps for the war effort in WWII was the closest Ford has been to making a great off-roader.

    • Well if Ford hasn’t built a great off-road vehicle since WWII, I guess Jeep fans have nothing to worry about then, do they?

  4. all of you complaining that the relocation kit has been around for years, not too long ago jeep put out a brochure about how having body mounted mirrors was a con, and now they are promoting it…
