    Just a few, more to come
    Remove sail panel, remove door panel(held by a few screws, and clips around the edges), unplug factory mirror wiring, remove factory mirror via 3 bolts, reverse process and then do the other side. Done.

    Intallation is fairly simple (even for non-expert like me).
    First pop off the plastic panel behind the level that opens your door. Remove small liner in little cubbyhole (what you use to close your door). Behind each of these, you will find a screw. Remove these screws.

    Then loosen the plastic holder toward the front of the door. This should pop up as shown.

    Then pull out the door panel. You could just prop the door on something (I used a lawn chair). That way you do not have disconnect wiring inside the door panel.

    Once you open the door panel, the small triangular panel can pop out. Behind this panel, you will find three screws. They hold mirrors in place. Unscrew these (be careful not to drop them inside your door). Disconnect the connector.

    Pop out the mirror and put your two mirror in. Tighten the screw. Connect the plastic connector. Basically reverse the steps.

    I realized that door panel was hiding the last screw in my picture (I think this was because I did not take the door panel completely off). Here's a someone else's better picture of these screws.

    Ok, I'll bite. Where did you get them? Are they heated, turn signals work, manual fold, etc.? They look good!

    Lol , just checking to see if y'all where paying attention . LKQ is where I got them , just give them a ring and they will find you a pair , great people to deal with and super fast . Fyi first set came in and one was scratched that I didn't like so they overnighted another. Plug and play factory tow mirrors , no shaking at highway speeds etc , everything works heat, power adjustability .

    And then the frenzy begins ....., let me know who all gets some ;)

    I have opened my OEM 2014 lights when I retrofitted them, it was a pain. These lights are sealed with permaseal. I would just buy a set of TRD Pro Lights from @Roman and sell your stock lights, well worth it.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but what they sell doesn't seem to be OEM Toyota tow mirrors. There have been after-market tow mirrors for years (at half the price).

    You can order there aftermarket models or you can order factory take offs . Basically they put in the part your looking for and then in my case they turned the computer screen around and you can actually see the truck there coming off of, there all wrecked trucks . Mine came off of a 2009 Tundra that was completely smashed in the back . They will try and sell you there aftermarket stuff but I told them I wanted used factory stuff , I have a branch in my home town. It's pretty neat what they do and there operation .

    That makes more sense. That's a viable option.
