    Guys I have searched high and low for this in TW and have not seen anyone that has put signal mirrors on trucks that did not come from That factory without them. Has anyone done this? The signal mirrors themselves are cheap in the after market world..... do I need to pave the way??

    Could use some help here..

    Your SR5 is not pre-wired for turn signals in the door. The mirror itself will bolt right in, but you will need to run wires through the door boot and tap them into L & R turn signal.
    @Nitori has confirmed no wires present in the door.

    Out of curiosity, what mirrors did you find? I was gonna go down this same path and found some cheapos on Amazon:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01N...al+mirrors&dpPl=1&dpID=21-aSjkV-GL&ref=plSrch

    The factory parts are $450ish so I of course went to the aftermarket to find a more suitable (wallet friendly) solution for what I'm chalking up as a luxury spend. But, I also don't want to bolt crap onto truck. Reviews seem to be largely mixed on Amazon.

    This is what I was seeing out there. I am feeling like I won’t do it or spend the $$ for the stock ones..... I am still undecided. Also check eBay out...

    I'm an idiot. Thought you had a 2nd gen...

    That seems like a good price for a 3rd gen mirror.

    Hey, I'd like to order some stuff for my new truck, but appears that you're out of stock on most everything on your website. Do you just check back periodically or do you sell them elsewhere?

    Thanks,
    JR

    Sorry to bump and old thread, but I am also interested in doing this, I don't mind running the wires to wire them up. Just wanted to know if anyone has tried it yet and what wires am I looking for.
