What are the options for side view mirrors that look somewhat original?

Some folks have installed fullsize 90s Bronco mirrors, bot that is not an original look. It's more of a modernized look. It shouldn't be too tough to find original side view mirrors online, used, but are you looking for something different or having trouble locating original ones? Or is that that prices for used FSJ parts have gone through the roof? I don't know of any cars or trucks that are a direct swap but a Ford Crown Victoria from 1987 has the kind of squared-off, chrome sideview mirrors that are similar to what would have appeared on a Wagoneer or J truck at the time.

Side mirror options?

Jag XJS(not really sure about model, but something from late 80s-early 90s) mirrors look identical to Jeep ones. Wiring is different (4 wires instead of 3 on FSJ), but you can swap the mirror switch as well.

There was a thread about the whole thing either here or on ifsja, but I can’t find it

I've looked at the Bronco but it just seems too bulky. I'll c heck out the Jag stuff as well. Thanks!

My old Cherokee had 80’s F150 mirrors and they looked ok.
