Are mirror arms identical?

I'm just wondering if both mirror arms on the Cjs are supposed to be identical. Mine are completly similar on both sides, an i never got a good look back on the passenger side. After having the car for 14 years now, the thought, that there could be a passenger side mirror arm, get's a little bit intimidating ...

Maybe some can tell

Thanks in advance

What year?
76 thru 86 CJs had different size arms, right vs left.

Yeah, but the driver's side arm is the same.

No, no, it's the passenger side that's different. I'm sure of it.

I really think it is the drivers that's different. Got peanut butter?

On a 1972 & up CJ, maybe earlier too, the passenger mirror arm is different because the mirror is intended to be viewed through the front windshield, not the side window like the driver's side.
