Mopar Launches Mirror Kit for Doorless Jeeps

Now Jeepers can see the Bronco behind them

  • Jeep owners can finally see behind them when driving doorless

  • Mopar kit from $398


One of Ford’s trump cards for the Bronco over the Jeep Wrangler was a look backward. Ford built the Bronco so that when you took off the doors, you still had your rear-view mirrors. Wrangler and Jeep Gladiator models lost the mirrors when you lost the doors because they were attached. So Mopar is responding and issuing a fix.

Mopar is Fiat Chrysler’s in-house parts and accessory division, and they make thousands of accessories for Jeep (and other FCA models). The latest is a doors-off mirror kit that should make driving doorless a little bit safer and easier for owners.

While there are aftermarket mirror options available, Mopar says theirs are designed and tested to original-equipment levels. Which makes sense since they were done by the same people who made the originals. The new mirrors are fitted to mounting brackets that attach to the door hinge and the windshield cowl, and the brackets have an anti-corrosion undercoat and black powder coat finish.

The mirrors are fastened with a T40 Torx wrench, which Jeep already includes in their toolkit that comes with the Wrangler and Gladiator, with no special tools required. The mirrors are designed to pivot away if you happen to hit an obstacle on the trail or while you’re parking your Jeep.

You will need to install the mirrors each time you remove the doors and pull them off to put the doors back on, but you don’t exactly want your body panels to be poorly attached anyway. The kit starts from $398 in Canada and is available for the current JL Jeep Wrangler and the Gladiator pickup. The kit has a two-year unlimited-kilometre warranty from date of purchase, or up to the remainder of the factory 3 year/60k warranty.
