    I realize that this is up to the individual but just wondering where everyone is placing theirs.

    Bottom or top? Inside or outside corner?

    Too many, but not enough....
    I don't use one, but I don't recall seeing them anywhere else except outside bottom.

    I like outside bottom corner, adjusted ones are the best so you can get it just right. Unfortunately with blind spot monitoring I had to do the inside bottom corner so when with a convex adjustable rectangle.

    Those are pretty near, how is the install? Also seems they don't offer an option for blind spot monitoring and blinkers unfortunately.

    Bottom outside corner, personal preference. Ran that for a year or so then just put oem tow mirrors on. :thumbsup:

    Is it worth getting them for both sides? I’ve been considering those as a future upgrade. On a previous truck, factory had a similar set up only on one side.

    The mirror glass just pops out.
    It's odd they don't offer the BSM nad turn signals.
    My SR5 had neither, I added the turn signals and puddle lights myself.

    There are install instructions on this page.

    With my borderline OCD there is no way I could just do one side.:rolleyes:
    Those spotter mirrors are really nice for changing lanes, especially at night..
    Plus I've been driving with something similar to these for 37 years at work.:D

    The OCD thing is understandable.:rofl: I may order just the driver and see if I feel the need for the other.

    they do not have a product that supports BOTH BSM and Turn Signals. It's one or the other.


    Note: We do not have an option with all 3 features on the same mirror: spotter + turn signal + BSM
    Mirrors are not auto-dimming (Platinum and 1794 Edition trims have that option)
