JK mirrors

I was curious if anyone can recommend a replacement for the stock side mirrors on the JK. I run with full doors most of the time and am getting tired of the glass moving by itself on me everyday

Any clue if you have to constantly adjust the glass on these like the stock ones.

I don't have to adjust my stock ones. Are you suggesting that most of the wranglers out there have mirror glass that is excessively floppy?

I smacked my drivers side mirror on a tree a few years ago and knocked the glass loose from the housing. Zip tied it back in for the day then looked at the attachment when I got home. There are a couple of plastic clips in the housing the mirror glass snaps into. Pushed the glass back in and been good ever since. Might be the glass is loose or the clips are broken in the housing. I've never had to readjust mine since. New mirrors may fix it for once and for all.

I had read posts from other people who had similar issues. Unfortunately the only way to tighten is to break the glass out and tighten the screws. The jeep only has 14000 miles and has never hit anything, yet. Will probably have the dealership look at it, I would think that would be something under the warranty.
