Side view mirrors

So I know this has been talked about but my question is..what are the best kind to get? I got my new to me '99 TJ last week and I have already put on a brand new soft top..and I want new mirrors..these ones are chipped and old and right now with work I honestly don't have time to paint them. I know that I want black ones but other than that I am stumped. Also, it seems that people don't like JC Whitney..is there a specific reason, and what site you recommend? I live on a small island so I order most everything online...thanks form the help.

Personally, I like the older style TJ mirrors.
But yes, all the ones I see, the metal part on them seems to be corroded.
To tidy them up, I take them off and hit them with a flat black rattle can. No prep, just spray the metal part. Take them off, spray, Re-install. Takes about 15 minutes.
Had my TJ 2 years and to do it twice so far.
Seen all sorts for sale on all the usual Jeep vendor sites but never bothered because they look great after being sprayed.
