Default sideview mirror help?

I should be buying another ranger in a few days and one of the many, many,many issues I'll be addressing is the busted sideview mirror. It snapped off above the base, so I'm wondering, will I have to replace the whole assembly or just the mirror and the post it sits on. Also, how do I get either the old post of the base, or the base of the door with the least amount of hassle/damage. It's a 1993 4.0 4x4.

You just have to take the door panel off and the mirror unbolts from there. Pretty simple.

HaHa... ! Thanks for the encouragement. I actually checked my haynes manual yesterday and, just like rangerstranger said, four screws and lift. Eezy Peezy!
