[quote=Heep-J4000]Don't know what the dimensions are ,but there are some not expensive ones on eBay,
Thanks Heep-J4000, I didn't even think about looking for pre cut mirror glass.

I found an older independent auto parts store not too far from me in Puyallup. I think I will see if they have anything but I also found what looks like a suitable mirror head at Summit so there is hope It sucks that someone broke my mirror and it sucks more that it was likely someone at my work.

That's true.



Oddly I'm not really angry, just upset. I figure someone must have not been paying attention where they were walking and probably walked into it, or possibly trying to joke and move my mirror, someone has done that multiple times in the past and I have the mirrors adjusted fairly tight so I can see how someone might break it if they tried to move it wrong. Where I backed in on the right side of the truck was a walkway wide enough to be a parking spot so it's not like there wasn't any room.



We actually have cameras at work but only management can view them. I don't want anybody to get in trouble but I want to know what happened so I asked one of the managers to have a look and see if they can see what happened.



The good news is I have found a new stainless steel replacement for it that isn't terribly expensive so it will be fixed soon

This looks like the ones on your jeep and are not too expensive

I understand, it's just frustrating. The mirrors on both my Jeeps get bumped out of position in parking lots. Just never had one broken that way.
I did have a really close call years ago in our VW van. Going thru a curved tunnel, I was hugging the double yellow in my direction and a Caltrans service pick up was doing the same coming the other way. Yep we hit mirrors only, broke both of them. That was scary!

There are a couple of companies still making the style I have they are also way cheaper than I expected
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/cip-94500


Amazon also has them for either $18 or $29 for the same one and they all seem to have good reviews.



That's when I start to over complicate things Shipping is free from Amazon but currently I'm not real happy with Amazon and want to avoid buying from them. Shipping from Summit is only free if you spend $100 and even if I bought 2 mirrors, oil and an oil filter it still wouldn't come to $100, which I suppose is a good thing because the truck doesn't need anything but it's a bad thing for summit because Amazon works out cheaper. Now If I buy two mirrors to assure they match it works out to about $2 more from Summit which is kind of worth it to not give any money to Amazon.



So decisions, decisions, decisions


One thing I will say about Summit is they have amazing shipping. Most of the time I receive whatever I order the next day but once I ordered something in the morning, had it shipped ground from Nevada or somewhere like that and somehow they actually managed to deliver to me south of Seattle that same day, I have no idea how but it impressed the hell out of me.

It is frustrating, I've gone through a lot of trouble to keep my truck looking good and then this kind of stuff happens. At least it's an easy fix, if the paint got messed up it wouldn't be so I'm glad it was something cheap and easy to fix.

In case it helps, RockAuto has a few different options for replacement mirrors too.
I bought a pair from them a couple of years ago for our '74 Ford F100 with similarly broken glass.

Look under "Replacement Mirror Head" and "Universal Mirror Assembly" in this link:

Thank you, I forgot all about Rock Auto and they do have similar mirrors that come to about the same price.


My wife tells me she decided to make an executive decision and pulled the trigger on the ones from Summit. Unfortunately it seems they are no longer using the shipping company they used to and they aren't expected to be here until next Tuesday, which isn't really a big deal I had just gotten used to their time traveling delivery ninjas.
