'88 Cherokee - side mirror(s) upgrade?

Hi all - I seem to remember that there is a mirror upgrade for my driver and passenger side mirrors. That darn "separator" that is a leftover from the vent window sure obstructs the view.

I tried a few things, including Toyota/Wrangler types and they don't work for me.

Is there a later model manual adj. mirror that will replace the original, in that same location (triangular hole in the "vent window" area), without any mods ??

Cruiser54?

Thanks.

A mirror from a 97+ will work.

Do you know if the mirror surface area is larger with the later model mirror that you are suggesting?

It's slightly larger. The guy I know that did it said it was better than the old mirror. Here is a link to a thread elsewhere that someone did it. Lots of interesting stuff. I think he also swapped the windows.
