Hope you get an answer to this--mine do the same thing. I've looked them over and can't find a place to tighten.

Answer here: Northern Virginia Jeepers Association Community Forums Northern Virginia Jeepers Tech Talk Tightening mirrors?

For clarification, the screws are on the bottom of the mirror head, partly hidden by the rubber boot around the pivot.

The OP did specifically ask about the old style TJ mirrors...

Old Style is subjective, no year given.

Rosco13, when I give an answer it's not always for the initaior of the theread, other people read it too. When searching for answers a new user can stumble accross this thread and have more information than they would otherwise have. They may not have a clue what an "old syle" TJ mirror is...

Too much informaiton is not a bad thing.

yep the screws on the bottom of the mirror did tighten the mirror up. Also on a side note, when I remove my doors I use a spot mirror off of a semi, about $15.00 with mounting bar. it is crystal clear and no vibration

Considering that TJs only had 2 factory mirror styles, 97-02 & 03-06, it's not subjective (actually, it wouldn't be subjective anyway, it'd be ambiguous. If you're going to chastise someone, at least do it correctly ;-) ) at all... Don't be so defensive...
