    I went and picked my camper up from storage and towed it home with the new mirrors on lastnight. The new ProEFX tow mirrors are AWESOME. I just flipped them up, pushed a button to adjust them, and magic. I could see perfect. Backing it up the drive was so much easier and I could see everything behind me. I could change lanes with confidence. If anybody wants to buy my lightly used universal strap-on tow mirrors let me know. If you are wondering whether on not to buy the proefx's or not, buy em! They look a little big on the truck, but not bad, they work great and seem to be top quality. I would definately buy them again.

    To Rob Peterson and the gang who came up with these ProEFX mirrors, we cannot thank you enough for designing them to fit the Tacoma! It was so difficult for us to see around or along side our travel trailer with the strap on mirrors. We could not see if another vehicle was next to us when changing lanes or seeing to back up. We have had these mirrors for 6 months now and "Wow, they make such a difference!" We are in San Diego, CA and we have people asking about them all the time for traveling and utility purposes. Thanks again ... great mirrors! (wife of TAMike)

    I am looking for Pro EFX EFXMRTAC05HET mirrors for my 2012 Tacoma but cannot locate anywhere. I have tried to contact Rob Peterson using the 1 800 447 1034 with no luck. I am regularly in Idaho and Washington. Any contact info would be appreciated. :)

    For those of you interested in these mirrors they are looking at the possibility of another group buy. Head over to Group Buy forum and check it out.
