    I was checking out the Muth Signal mirrors and i noticed you can order them heated as well for the 05+ tacoma. Has anyone installed them?? If so do they heat good?

    I used heated mirrors for a Siena. No signals but the heat works great. Plus they were less then $80. I also used an oem switch from a highlander so that everything looks factory.

    I bought a oznium switch, and it looks good. I just liked the oem switch better as the heated mirror symbol dims with the rest of the dash lights as well as shuts off after 15 minutes.
    It was expensive (around $50 I think) plus I screwed one up and had to buy another! But I do like that it looks like the truck came with it stock.

    I get confused with so many posts so I may be wrong but I seem to remember the OEM needed a relay and was around $70 but I don't feel like reading the old post thru 20 pages to confirm it.

    I got the switch from my Toyota dealer. As I mentioned above, go to the link in George3 post (#3) and once you are in that check post # 93. It shows the switch and the Toyota Part # is 84871-48030.
