    Finally pulled the trigger on the Boost Auto Towing mirrors, been eyeing em up for months now...gonna paint em MGM to match truck, went with all the bells and whistles so I don’t lose any of the functions on my Platinum mirrors...added the sequential turn signals and high output spot lights, can’t wait to get em on!

    Very nice. In hindsight I wish I had those mirrors vs my Towing mirrors.

    No. They have wiring into a flat terminal that plugs into the OEM bulb socket. Felt like a snug fit.

    Thank you sir. I’ve been back and forth on whether I want tow mirrors or not. They’d be nice about 5 months out of the year and I do ok with the stock. Well, mostly ok. Haha

    Just placed an order for Agency6 shackle receiver hitch, ARB RK12 weekender recovery kit, and xbull traction boards. Getting ready for some light off road this season if time permits!

    The wife gave the go ahead to get heated seats installed for our anniversary. I would prefer to have heated and cooled. The only option I've seen so far for this, is Katzkin. Install is over $3K though. Looking at Clazzios, but I won't be able to do the install since I'm still in Korea. I'm sure the labor cost in Cali is gonna take the price up there with Katzkin. For those that have Katkin with Degreez installed, what are your thoughts? Any benefit to one or the other?

    I started thinking katzkin and cheaped out with clazio pvc at $350 + $100 seat heater kit. Not exactly complete but sick price point and full coverage from the children and other passengers tendency to be slobs. I can replace in 10 years if I so desire with something nicer or even take 'em off and go back to cloth. It was just so cheap and easy...

    Yes. It's something a teenager with reasonably strong hands and work ethic can handle after watching the video.

    Wiring the seat heaters is maybe the only part where some thinking is appropriate. I'm still going on mine.

    And, FTR, I'm speaking of my tacoma but I don't expect the install is any different on a Tundy? I will definitely go clazzio again (I'm on here as I prepare to trick my buddy into selling me my 2002 Tundra back once he's tired of it and wants something a bit more luxurious.)

    With the GM ones I'd say if you do a bunch of city driving stay with the regular OEM mirrors. The GM ones are huge so you see everything behind you but have a blind spot coming up to intersections for pedestrians and cross traffic. I love my GM ones when I'm out on the highway, especially the freeways, but in town I'm always moving my head around to double check I didn't miss something.

    I just put these on my 2020 TRD Sport MGM. They are Awesome mirrors, no shaking at all, very stable mirrors. I did not hook up the flood/spot light to the reverse lights. I hooked up the flood/spot light to the cargo light. This way when I unlock the truck the flood/spot light turns on so I can see the door area. Very easy to install, worth every penny.

    Good to hear!...yea I’m on the fence about where I’m gonna hook my spot lights into, I already have puddle lights and I also installed custom LED’s under truck that come on when I unlock truck or open a door so I may stick to the reverse setup, but we’ll see!

    That is for the cruise control. Hit that button on the end of the switch and itll turn off. Hold that button and you can use cruise control without the radar.
    These boards are so much better than the stock BS. My 135 lb lil ass was flexing those... My wife and I dance on these mugs with ZERO flex and I hope theyll be big enough to protect my doors from dings

    Check the build link in my signature.
    I love mine - great mirrors. Running BSM is my next project.

    I haven’t had that experience with mine. Might be because I had the OEM ones from day one on my prior truck and just got used to it, but I don’t notice any more/bigger blind spots than before.

    Did you get puddle lights in the new mirrors? I didn’t see that as an option. I ran my “reverse” lights to a dedicated switch. I don’t see a huge amount of usefulness in them TBH, except maybe for some specific use cases. So I’m glad they don’t come on EVERY time I go into reverse.

    I jump back and forth between my Tundra with the GM mirrors and the wife's Ram with the small regular type mirrors, and it's night and day. I'm used to towing mirrors as I drive HD trucks more than my Tundra so it's normal for me but there is quite a blind spot compared to the standard mirrors. The Toyota towing mirrors are right in the middle - which is why I didn't like them - and they certainly created a blind spot too. It's not too much of a blind spot that it's unsafe, but it's certainly something to think about for those who drive in the city a bunch.

    Started my drawer system build today by going to Lowes and getting some 1/2" maple plywood. Got pretty far before darkness and some rain started setting in but pretty good for a few hours of work and no real plan on what to build. (ignore the overloaded cargo net ... put a bunch of crap up there that was in the bed while I was working).

    Plan is to have a hinged flap on the cab end to get underneath for storage and the rest will be a drawer once my slides get here from China sometime in early May. The passenger side will have a full length piano hinge that opens so I can access the areas next to the wheel well for more storage. Currently everything is screwed together with pocket screws and is really stable but I'm going to add some L brackets as well just in case. Outside of the box will also get some marine carpeting. Bottom panel will be mounted into the bed with a bunch of rivnuts and bolts so it can be removed relatively easy.
