Default Side view mirror extender questions..........

Hi Gang,

I need some side view mirror extenders for my Tacoma.

Can anyone recommend some?

Thanks All!

I'm using these on my Pathfinder. Work well. I did add a rear view camera to the back of my clamshell so I can have clear view of what's behind me while driving.

I also am using the CIPA brand on my Tundra. I only use them when towing my trailer, then I remove them until needed again. I did add some very thin sticky backed foam to the inside of these where they contact my mirrors. It helps them not to slip on the plastic mating surfaces once tightened. Much cheaper than purchasing Tundra OEM towing mirrors, and they serve their intended purpose.

Fellow Tacoma fan here. On my 2nd Taco. I have used a lot of clip on mirror extenders and I've been disappointed by all of them. This year I am buying these:https://www.1aauto.com/2005-14-toyot...lusaAlNi8P8HAQ

They also sell heated for only $20 more, which I may do but there is a lot more involved with the install. Need to buy some other parts for a clean install which might add another $100:https://www.1aauto.com/2005-14-toyot...r/i/1amrp01137

Clip-ons universally suck. If you're set on keeping the little taco, I'd put real towing mirrors on it. If not, then get a real truck with towing mirrors.

I've used the same brand on my tundra...they needed some two sided tape when slipping them on to really hold them in place. Otherwise they've worked well. They help when towing the boat to.
