    Has Anyone in this Forum installed the Boost Auto Parts power folding Mirrors on their truck that didn't come with it?
    If so I know you had to add the switch to fold but anyone used the original switch from toyota? I'm wanting to add this mod but I want to use the original switch. If anyone has done this please share how it was wired to use the original switch. Thanks for the help.

    They are next on my list of mods! I'm a little confused by your question. Are you saying your tundra doesn't currently have powerfold as an option, you plan to add the powerfold harness from Boost, but you want to wire it into the Toyota OEM mirror switch that has the powerfold button on it? Ie no losing a blank to use the switch provided by Boost?
    I've been curious about this and was going to ask Boost. They obviously have an option for if you have powerfold as an option so I doubt it would be difficult to wire their harness to the Toyota switch.

    I'll definitely keep an eye on this to see what you find out.

    I do not have power fold mirrors or the switch. I would have to buy the switch online. The other issue I have is that I don't have a blank. I would have to cut somewhere to add the switch they send and that is what I don't want to do. The new switch comes with wires see link: Power Auto Rear Mirror Folding Switch with Wire Harness 84872-52040 for Toyota Vios Rav4 Camry Scion Lexus https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Q572QBK/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_UkijFbG0NS9AR

    Ah, I'm planning to use the blank to the left of my tow/haul button but it would be nice to just update the existing mirror button. Maybe ask Boost? I've reach out before and they were pretty quick to respond. I bet they will tell that that after you purchase mirrors they will send a wire diagram to tie into the new button. I think you will still have to buy their harness but someone here might have a way around that.

    I've seen this but this is installing the OEM mirrors that fold. Which mirrors did you installed? I'm wanting to install the boost auto parts Mirrors. Thanks for the help.

    The boost part is designed to be plug and play feature to feature on your truck. So if you have the feature already it will work without modification. For features you don't have you have to write up to the harness like the post I shared shows.

    Depending on if the mirrors you want also have reverse lights, there would be an extra harness that needs to be connected to a harness on the passenger side kick panel. This feature doesn't exist with OEM i don't think.

    @jamestada thanks for the info! Based on everything thing I've read and from the videos, no Tundra's have the reverse light so you will have to wire that up if you want it.
    I did really like how detailed the Boost videos were. Makes the task of installing these mirrors less daunting

    Yes that is correct. The spot light to wire is the least of my worries, that is easy to wire. I'm just asking if anyone has installed the boost mirrors with the oem switch and originally you didn't have folding mirrors but using the wire harness they send you with the aftermarket switch that is like the OEM switch.
