    Spotter Mirror is the brand - Tacoma | Side View Replacement Mirrors (spottermirror.com)

    Rav4 has a built in convex at the top left which people reported didn't set you see your tires so I went with these. The convex is adjustable on these too, it's not a on the Rav4.

    For the Tundra:

    "We do not have an option with all 3 features on the same mirror: spotter + turn signal + BSM"

    Lame!

    Yeah.

    The spotter mirror kind of acts as a BSM in itself. Not sure if that was the reasoning or not?

    Noico sound deadening on all doors and the rear wall, JBL speakers swap on all doors, tweeters and sub are stock.

    And of course upgraded to the TRD Air filter for that extra 50hp :bikewhoops:IMG-9021.jpg IMG-9023.jpg IMG-9030.jpg IMG-9050.jpg IMG-9054.jpg IMG-9065.jpg IMG-9021.jpg IMG-9023.jpg IMG-9030.jpg IMG-9050.jpg IMG-9054.jpg IMG-9065.jpg

    3 years on weather tech in northern vt in my Tacoma. No problems no curling. In all my vehicles since moving here swear by them. I agree that the other products I have looked at were a hard pass. To me, weather tech is a one trick pony, but as long as it's floor mats they're great.
    Had huskys crack mid-winter, discovered in spring, huge mess of salty mud, surprise!

    The Blind spot radar sensors actually fit into the little round holes you see near the top of those caps--so no, there won't be a problem (I have installed a steel bumper and my BSM sensors still work.

    Might be a climate thing. They do not like the heat in AZ. Everyone here complains about them curling after a summer or 2.

    The BSM radar are two large squares that sit at an angle, behind the caps, on the farthest corner of either side of the bumper.
    I believe you are referring to the parking assist sensors.
    I’m glad your BSM still works with your steel bumper as that’s not the case for most.

    Edit: Oh. Your BSM works because you have one of the only brands of steel bumpers on the market compatible with BSM... Apogee off-road
    Those plastic caps on the corners of your bumper? Those cover your BSM radar because they don’t work through metal.

    With respect to side-view mirrors and BSM function, one thing the Subaru team got right is a large lamp at the side of the mirror assemblies facing the windows. When it lights up, it grabs your attention with your peripheral view. The little lamp behind the Toyota mirrors is not as effective getting one's attention. Better than nothing. Even with good scanning behaviors, someone on a motorcycle may come up on you between lanes.

    Interestingly, my wife was behind the wheel of the Subaru tonight, and backing up, two cars triggered the Rear Crossing Traffic Alert function. And she thought me insisting on the tech package in the Toyota including these two features made no sense.

    Explaining one is "right" to their spouse sometimes is not worth the trouble... But if it helps either of us avoid a collision or tagging a pedestrian - it's paid for itself. Cannot tell you how many times in a parking lot, people walking behind the Subaru were looking at their cell phones.

    Very helpful safety automation IMHO. On the flip-side, personally my wife and I have no intention to use adaptive cruise, nor cruise control automation, ever, ever, ever.

    All good stuff! However, I like the adaptive cruise control as I am on my third meniscus tear in my right knee. On longer trips on the freeway it takes the pressure off of my knee and the radar does an excellent job of slowing the vehicle when either someone merges onto the freeway ahead of me or the vehicle ahead slows down.

    I tend to agree with you :thumbsup: as the same thing happened to the WT floor mats in wife's SUV (two edges of the rear mats somehow warped/deformed ) and I am in SoCal. Once I get tired of my taco's OEM floor mats, I'm definitely replacing them with Husky instead.

    Same thing crossed my mind, where does everyone live, what climate, makes sense. Weather tech is a solid choice in New England in my opinion.
