    I'm looking for some clip on towing mirror extensions for my 2019 tundra. 2018 is the latest year I can find extensions for. Does anyone know if extensions that will fit a 2018 will fit my 2019 model? I don't think they changed the mirrors but don't want to go through the hassle of returning them if they don't fit.

    They have the same part number so, yes.

    resurrecting a bit. Looking for a "Decent" set of clip on mirrors that will fit Gen 3 Tundra. It's actually for my Sequoia, same mirrors. No, I am NOT putting on the permanent tow mirrors on my wife's rig. I actually like sleeping in my own bed.

    I know it's stretch, but want something that won't "buzz" and is actually usable at speed.

    Almost started a thread until I saw this.

    Im looking at purchasing a set of temp tow mirrors for a trip next week. I'm borrowing my parents travel trailer and the stock mirrors are juuuuuuust out of reach in my opinion to see the tires of the trailer. They do fine for my boat so I don't need to upgrade the mirror completely. Here are the mirrors I am looking at based on above recommendations and my own research. My main concern is them scratching/ scuffing the plastic anywhere on the existing mirror while installed. @BenLC can you comment on this for the mirrors you use? (in my 2nd link)

    I've used these types before. the challenge is finding one that doesn't vibrate the smaller mirror so bad that it renders them useless. My last set I used a few years back on another rig were so bad i had to stuff the are behind the small mirror with chunks of foam. Not too interested in doing that again.

    I GOT PLANS!.... Implementation is another topic.
    I use these when towing my long camper, they are just enough without hindering line of sights. They are snap on but are secure.

    I have the K Source snap ons. I've used them for about 3000 miles and they've worked fine. No vibration. They have a soft strip inside to avoid scratching, but in my experience the snap on extensions, with enough on and off, will eventually scratch your mirrors.

    Thanks everyone. I went with the K Source ones. They had slightly better reviews on Amazon compared to the other one.

    I was mainly concerned about backing up and seeing the tire placement. So hopefully the vibration won't bother me too much at highway speeds.
