The tundra has multiple mirror options depending on you model. Some are heated , power adjust, power fold etc and the connection is different for each. I have the SR5 and cannot add the power fold unless i rewired. Just something to keep in mind
I got lucky and was getting an oil change at the dealer and asked about the tow mirrors. They said many dont like and buy the stock mirrors instead. They happened to have a passenger side one that was left by such a person. When i inquired on price he told me that if i bought the drivers side he would give it to me. So i did. Mine are just the heated/power adjust but i can fold them in. Glad that i got them. Much easier and a better view
Oh and if anyone needs stock (heated power adjustable) tundra mirrors i will gladly sell mine for a good price
I have the heated power adjustable tow mirrors and just love them when towing. It is nice to be able to fold them when necessary too. There is a little more sound noise when not towing but not a big deal. Biggest problem is that I am a 5'2 girl so seeing over the mirrors (when not extended) is a bit challenging. I have learn to learn forward to see if anyone is at the other stop sign before moving on.
I sold the original mirrors from my truck that were only 3 days old on CraigsList to a guy that had towing mirrors but wanted regular mirrors.
LOL...if only I knew that ahead of time.
I liked the CIPA mirrors especially for the price but found that they would stop adjusting easily. This became a problem especially after cracking both mirrors.
Never could get that piece to stay in place while sliding the mirror in place so I ended giving up.
Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...
