minor annoyance - 02 TJ and factory new TJ mirrors

the side mirrors on my 02 TJ have these little rubber gasket/rings where the mirrors articulates. these little rubber rings are all broken and cracked. i when to a jeep dealer and noticed that the 02s and some 03 TJs are the same. where is the quality control police?

some of the 03 TJs have the lastest and greatest plastic housed mirrors and don't have this problem. plastic is cheaper i guess to manufacture.

i know this is a minor annoyance. i could have larger issues, like oil leaking or shifting problems.

Mine are cracked as well. I guess that they wanted to use up the old ones before the new style came in.

My 01 mirrors are fine. It's the YJ mirrors that never stay put.
