Tundra 2016 Towing Mirrors

I see quite a few Tundra TVs here. What do you like for clip on mirrors?

I've found this and it looks pretty good (JR Products 2912 Grand Aero Towing Mirror)

Toyota tow mirrors do work nice.
Install in 30 minutes or so each.

I use the ones you show on my Tundra. I've had others.....those are great. Clamp well and are study. All clip on mirrors have some vibration on occasion.

I use OEM replacement flip-up towing mirrors from 1AAuto.com

Theese replace the OEM mirror with a set on a longer arm, then the mirror head rotates vertical to increase the field of view even more. Have a look at what they offer. I bought a set and really like them.

Get the OE style aftermarket extending/telescoping towing mirrors off Amazon for $149 per pair.
The OE mirrors from Toyota are $235 each.
The OE lights fit the aftermarket mirrors. I have the lights on both sides- one because a vehicle crossed the center line and struck the light breaking it and the other because some of the LED segments went out. For some reason the driver's side/left side was $14, but the passenger/right side was $16 for the lights. Go figure. Maybe they sell more driver's side/right side lights?
The same mirrors fit from model year 2007-2018.

My friend uses those and loves them.
I got the CIPA slide on mirrors, but have never used them.
(I should)
I found I can see quite well with the standard mirrors.

I know you specifically asked about clip on but... After doing some research and using clip on mirrors on my previous TV, I purchased the Toyota OEM tow mirrors for my new Tundra SR5. There were a lot of stories about aftermarket mirrors shaking on the highway or distorted images. OEM are $475 on Amazon right now. I installed both in 30 minutes, they work great and I gained mirror turn signals. I know they are pricey but I have been very happy with them.

When I got my 2010 tundra limited I measured the width from mirror to mirror and it was actually wider than my previous TV (toyota 4rnr) with extension clip on mirrors installed. Like Mollysdad Ive not bothered using my clip ons. My tundra has the electric folding and I'm curious if I change to the aftermarket mirrors if that would still work?? Its nice to have in Parking lots etc when not towing.

The tow mirrors will not fold electrically, only manually.
That is one reason I choose the Limited vs. the Platinum and 1794 Edition- that and $10,000 difference in price...
So I don't have cooled seats, moonroof, electric tilt and telescoping wheel, memory positions for seat and pedals, electric folding mirrors...

The JR Products 2912 Grand Aero Towing Mirror are the same one as the Dometic DM-2912 Milenco Grand Aero3 Towing Mirror. Except the price is MUCH better on the Dometic.

Works great on my LX570

Nothing to like about clip-on mirrors. (They're like clip-on bow ties -- they're for kids.) I use a Toyota Tacoma to tow my 15' Airlight, so I bought some aftermarket mirrors that replace the factory mirrors. Here's just one type for your Tacoma.

I have the same mirrors on my 2010 Tundra. Very sturdy easy to put on and take off. I have tried many different mirrors before I bought these. I like them alot.
