Question 83 Cherokee Chief Side View Mirrors Recommendation

I have an 83 Cherokee Chief that is currently getting painted and I want to replace the current after market mirrors. Any suggestions? I have called many 4x4 offroad parts stores online and their only suggestion is to check their site.

Stock mirrors for an 83 Chief should be the basic tri-pod stainless steel towing mirror.

Ford mirrors also fit and look pretty good. I, myself, like west coast style mirrors.

Here's a pic of the stock tripods on my Honcho, and some aftermarket west coast mirrors on my Gladiator.
Also a pic of the stock Jeep small mirrors on my 84.

Wow Towtruck...I haven't seen a Bitter SC Coupe in a long time...

Anyway, my 1980 Cherokee Chief has mirrors like on Kaiserman's 84 (3rd pic).

I used the River Beast idea with mid '90's Bronco mirrors. Great improvement.
