New Mirrors

I have a 97 sport and have owned it since July 1996. The side mirrors started to move about 2001. I notice that '03-'06 wranglers have a different mirror which I believe were designed to overcome the moving mirror problem. My question is if these new mirrors fit older models? I will change to the new design if they will fit in the my factory holes. Has anyone tried to make this change?

They should fit no problem. I purchased some half doors for my 2006 from a pre 2000 TJ. So they would match, I swapped on another set of the new style mirrors. They bolted right up.

Thanks I thought it would work but just wanted an opinion from someone with experience. Now time to find some at a good price...

I agree my driver side mirror is all over the place after I set it and close my door. let me know if it works for you.
Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

Have you tried tightening the nut on the inside bottom of the mirror? I believe the reason they changed the mirrors in 03 was due to the flaking of paint due to oxidation more than anything else.
