Vandalized! Need new mirror

I went down to Purdue this weekend for the game, only to come back to my Commander parked in a Great location on Sunday Morning. As I was loading up the car I noticed something, my antenna was bent in half and my passenger was busted. you can only imagine the rage going through me.

So I call to report it to the W. Lafayette Police department, officer comes out, tells me what I know "Some drunk kid, sorry bout your luck we will never find him yada yada." Right then this kid walks up, says he saw the whole thing last night, some 6'4 28 yr old beast from Illinois visiting his friend was drunk kicked cars and came to mine and busted it and walked into his apartment.... 20 ft from my car. The cop wakes him up, he kinda admits it.

So he gets threatened by the cop that he will go to jail if I want him too but I said we should just settle it. Knowing that I can fix the antenna (or buy a new one for $12) and that I had to come home that day and wouldnt take a check from this creep, I tell him to give me $500 (figured his trailer trash ass wouldnt have anymore than that). He walks to the ATM and gets me the cash!

So I fixed the antenna, the glass is fine on the mirror, and only a little bit on the plastic outer part is busted, it is a "possible fix" I just want to order the new part. NO mechanical problems, no bends in the structure..

So where can I get a new assembly? DO I need to get a entire new unit? I am hoping to keep some $ out of this and finally order my roof rack!

This site has different passenger mirror options and I have no clue on which to get! Does anyone know, thanks so much

I dont have a limited or overland, it is heated/power. Do you think I only need the $38 part? (Part 3 in the illustration) Or do you think I have to get the $108 part (Part 1 in the illustration)

I see what you mean now, they dont do a good job showing it is the glass, they point to the back part. Still $108 is a steal

Dabitz - I looked earlier and only saw the whole assembly for $220.

Sorry to hear the bad news. That would piss me off too. I don't have any info to help you other than moral support.

Sorry it took me so long to follow up on this.

I ordered the mirror from http://mopar-parts-dealer.com/parts.htm and I was amazed when I recieved it! The $118 gave me everything. New glass, all internal and external components, EVERYTHING! Took 5 minutes to install!! Thanks everyone for your help
