Jeep and Mopar Fix the Wrangler/Gladiator's Door-Off Side-Mirror Flaw .
The Jeep Wrangler and its Gladiator pickup sibling share an annoying flaw for those who like their driving experiences to be a little more al fresco: The side mirrors are mounted to the models’ removable doors, meaning they’re gone when the doors are gone. Ford went out of its way to avoid this issue on its 2021 Bronco, mounting the side mirrors at the base of the A-pillars to ensure the driver always has a clear view of what's behind the vehicle—even with the doors removed. Jeep drivers, though, must decide between a door-free driving experience or the safety and peace of mind that comes from a pair of exterior-mounted rearview mirrors.
