2016 Toyota Tundra questions

Getting ready to buy a 2016 Tundra 2WD SR5. Have a 2006 Tundra and have been very, very happy with it, but time for a new one. My questions are for anyone that has a new 2016 Tundra:
1. Do you have the optional tow mirrors? If so, are you happy with them? Mind telling me how much they were?
2. Are you happy with the built in trailer brake controller?

Will be towing a 2014 31ft Coachmen 288BHS trailer.

I got the mirrors from You can use code CM10PERCENT at checkout for additional savings, they can get you the right part numbers and price. I paid around $400.00. I wont go aftermarket.

I have factory Big Tow mirrors and love them; and, of course, they're extendable. My 5.7 tundra is an '08, but I am looking at the Cummins Nissan or Cummins Toyota. The gas 1/2 tons are not efficient enough for me. They do the job, sure, but I want a little more towing power. Btw, I tow a 27HFS.

I've purchased from Sparks too for other things. Recommend them for sure.

I would be surprised if selling dealers parts manager would not be willing to match sparks price plus shipping.

As for us, we went with the cheap CAPA mirrors as we only tow once a month. Works great for us.

Would recommend the TRD rear sway bar and maybe some sumo springs if you have high tongue weight.
