Thanks Gage. That will be helpful for sure. I'm trying to decide what mirror to get off Ebay. the Jeep sites want 400+ for OEM versions

I was just adding some feedback for the mirror I bought.
Not necessarily too heavy, if you don't take hard hits a lot!

If your worried about it cracking the mirror, I have seen a mod where some one took flat stock and welded it to the upper windshield frame and then attached the mirror button to that. Heavy mirror problem solved!
