    Having a hard time finding tow mirrors listed to fit 2020 Tundra. I’m assuming the specs just haven’t been released to vendors at this point? Does anyone know if that is the case, and will 2019 mirrors fit 2020?

    Yes that’s my assumption too, just odd that there none listed as compatible yet!

    Thanks!

    You might beable to call the dealership and see if they make one for the 2020. I m sure the 19 will work. Someone will check in will more information about. I did loose my BSM when my was put. My passenger mirror was took off 3 days after I got so the guy paid for them.

    I’ve been watching for the same thing. I’ve had three dealerships tell me the ‘19 mirrors won’t work for the 2020. My dealership had a pair unboxed behind the counter they said they’d tried and none of the electronics worked.

    I’ve spoken to our OEM parts man here on the forum, Roman, and he thought they would work but hasn’t had anyone try it yet. So someone needs to step up and give it a shot. For my PRO, it doesn’t have the fold function or blind spot monitoring, so all I need is the mirror adjust and defrost.

    I will call local Toyota dealers tomorrow and get their input! That’s discouraging yours said no, was just hoping the info hasn't been given to aftermarket vendors yet... the only functions my stock mirrors have is heat and adjust. Other posts have said will gain turn signals hoping that holds true

    I don’t understand why it wouldn’t work. Some voice is telling me the dealerships are saying “no” because the tow mirrors don’t work with the blind spot monitoring. They either have a lawyer telling them to say “no”, or they might not understand that some trims only have power adjust and heat.

    The rep I spoke with at a1 said no, however he did mention just maybe they don’t have the specs from Toyota yet to verify.. Maybe my local dealer will give me some useful info tomorrow, I will post what they say..

    I've done a little..
    If body styles haven’t changed what’s the problem with mirror fit?

    I think the fit is fine, it is the wiring that’s (possibly) changed.

    Just have to see how the wiring is probably. You don’t have heated mirrors?

    I installed Trail Ridge towing mirrors from A1. I ordered mirrors with BSM and turn signals even though my 2018 limited didn't come with the in mirror signals. The mirrors work great and the signals work with my truck too.

    Here is the review I did of them after running them for just a few months:

    https://www.tundras.com/threads/rev...mirrors-from-1aautomotive.56564/#post-1478120

    TL;DR: they're good for the money but the studs rust and leave stains on the paint and the vendor told me "yeah, that happens."

    Finally bought the trail ridge tow mirrors and installed them on my 2020, even though they didn’t list them as a fit. Happily I can say they fit and work great! I gained the turn signals at the mirrors, the power adjustment and heat works great so far. They seem to be good quality. My only complaint would be minor imperfections in the passenger side gasket, but don’t think any real concern. The install was very easy, definitely recommend a trim/molding tool to make removing door panel easier.

    I have a 2018 and installed the same mirrors. When I turn on the heat it works but the yellow mirror indicator doesn't illuminate. Do yours?

    No nothing illuminates on the mirror to let u know heat is on, just actually feel them get warm. Is their supposed to be a light that comes on?

    I thought there was suppose to be a light similar to the blind spot light but in the upper inside corner. I'll look again in the morning.

    There is a symbol in the corner if the mirrors are heated but it does not light up. Its just there to let you know the feature exists. The button on the dash that you push to activate the mirror heat lights up.
