I have a 2011 and live in the mountains of Colorado. Heated mirrors are a must for me as I do not have a garage. I have read up on the "EL Cheapo" mod and am debating doing this low cost mod with doing the more expensive sienna mirror swap. I like the idea that the siennas are quite a bit less work, and the heating element covers more of the mirror surface (faster defrost).
Has anyone put sienna mirrors into a 2011 Tacoma? Hows the fit? If I can confirm that the sienna's work in a 2011, I may look to pull some at a junkyard or get them on ebay to save a lot of work.
The part of this job that intimidates me the most is the wiring. anyone have any advice on the best way to wire it up? I have a 5-post switch from a paseo that looks like a perfect fit in the dash switch blanks. Do I need to use a relay?
Any first-hand advice on this mod would be greatly appreciated
oh yeah...one more thing. Anyone have any credible info on whether toyota is finally getting it's shit together and making heated mirrors for the tacoma with the "light redesign" of the 2012?
