I assume you added the round wide angle mirrors? Mine didn’t come with those.
Yes, I added those. I hate having a blind spot and always add them. They were a 2 dollar 2-pack from walmart.

I highly doubt they will EVER release a doors off mirror kit with blind spot detection. How would you run the electrical/signaling to support the function?

Only way I would see this possible is with some sort of wireless connection like Bluetooth and batteries in the mirrors. That's a tall order to support blind spot. Not likely due to cost/complexity and liability...

Maybe the next rev of the Wrangler design takes their cue from the Ford Bronco, moving the mirrors to the body, avoiding this altogether. Not supporting or rejecting this option but that's the only way I'd see it playout.

Look at the current design. Seems like they could have wired that up for the blind spot monitoring functionality and included a clip to run a wiring harness down behind the bracket and into the interior to clip into the existing harness, especially at that price point. Make it removable at the mirror side so you can run it without as well and everyone's happy. Might not be the perfect solution because you have the wiring harness "exposed" but it could be wrapped up and secured and provide the functionality that people want.

Gang. In case someone was wondering how well these are made or how they mount and look, attached are a few pics of our Jeep. No doubt they are pricey but they are well made and feel like the standard mirrors.

The kit comes with everything you need to mount them. Some minor assembly is required.

-You need to remove the bolt on the small square panel where the windshield/door meet. It's replaced by a longer bolt from the kit.

-There is a clamp with a thumb screw that is used to clamp the mirror down between the body and plastic interior trim that runs along the inside edge of the door opening near the dash. You simply pull the plastic trim panel away from the sheet metal, insert the steel tongue into the opening and then secure it by tightening it down with the thumb screw. There is a piece of foam padding already installed on the flat section that gets secured to the sheet metal so it won't damage the finish.

-Also included is a bolt to affix the bottom of the mirror base to the upper door hinge.

-Finally, there are multiple screws that are used to attach the mirror to the base.

All in all, taking my time, it probably took 20 minutes to assemble and mount the mirrors once the doors were off.

I would expect that removal and re-installation of the assembled mirrors would take under 10 minutes for each process if you keep the mirrors assembled for storage.
