    Good luck finding those...
    purdy damn pricey if new.

    BTW... those are described as the "off road" mirrors.

    I bought the ebay junk from "radiator classic"

    1st round the passenger mirror look like a fun house mirror
    when trying to view thru.

    Driver's side was fine.

    But I had to return both to get replacements.

    New passenger mirror was fine...
    but then the replacement drivers mirror began to vibrate some. :(
    It's not the housing... just the glass piece.

    So I guess the factory mirrors would be the best choice
    And as well... the best quality.

    Think I'll eventually take my driver's side mirror apart
    and see what can be done to tighten that up some.

    btw... I went this route because factory used mirrors are
    somewhat pricey and difficult to find for sale.

    Anyone else ever take these apart ? (even the originals)
    might help for me to see what is going on inside of the housing.

    I believe the mirror glass mounts to a bracket
    that is inserted as a ball end into a cup.
    I think that may be where this vibration stems from.
