Maybe when I get a new Tundra I will keep my current aftermarket tow mirrors.
I still have the original mirrors in the shed.

M., where are the screws attaching the mirrors? My right mirror has some of the bulbs out on the side. I'm not sure I care very much (it has been like that for years), but maybe I'll replace them.

I had to purchase the tow mirrors for my 2010 Tundra. They were OEM purchased from http://toyotaparts.sparkstoyota.com/...um=87940-0C221

A little over $400. They were great mirrors, didn't vibrate and the side view was very good. They had powered adjustments except the concave lower mirror and manual folding and extension. Read too many issues of vibration for cheaper knockoffs.

I found a youTube video on how to install the mirrors. You have to take the door panels off to get to remove the interior panel to access the mounting hardware on the inside of the door. Once you do the one side the next is easier. No special tools required.

You don't have to remove the mirror to remove the bulb.
The bulb just plugs into the side of the housing.
The running light on my right mirror quit.
The bulb is $17 from Toyota.
I have not priced the bulb elsewhere.
I decided I've never had Morris with running lights before and it really doesn't matter.
The turn signal still works, but the running light and turn signal are all in the same bulb housing I think.
To answer your question:
There is one but behind the "sail" panel in the corner of the window.
If your truck is a Limited or Platinum this sail panel may have a tweeter in it.
The other 2 screws are behind the door panel.
Remove the sail panel and dirt panel and then remove the mirror.

I got aftermarket mirrors which appear identical to OE mirrors from discountautomirrors.com for $115 each.

We just returned from a spring break camping trip to Tomoka State Park in Ormond Beach, Fl. This is a wonderful campground.
We have an 08 double cab 5.7L 2wd. We got 13.4 mpg towing gently (55-65 mph). Me, wife, 2 dogs and 2 kayaks on top. Loading and unloading kayaks is not so easy.
Love our Tundra.

tow mirrors

I ordered my 07 Tundra with tow mirrors, the tow package was included with the 5.7 motor. I traded the 07 for a 2012 that didn't have the tow mirrors. I told the dealer I wouldn't trade without the trailer mirrors. The dealer looked them up and said that they were too much money. He suggested. We bring in both the 07 and the 12 to see if the mirrors could be switched out between the two trucks. They worked perfectly, even the side and turn signal lights. The dealer was great and didn't even charge for the change. Maybe if you are looking for the tow mirrors you could check with a salvage yard. The new F150 and the GM trucks don't. Include trailer mirrors even with their maxim trailer towing packages either.

m.', thanks for the info on the mirror bulbs.

Kelvin, I watched someone remove inside panels to get at something and he used a plastic pry bar. It is less likely to scratch anything. I suppose you could wrap a screwdriver tip in masking tape and solve that problem. Glad to hear you got them off without buying plastic tools.

Oh no!
Spell check/predictive text got me again!
Morris = mirrors...

Spell checking gets us all eventually. I thought "Morris" was the name of your truck.

I bought a used 07 Tundra Limited five years ago. It's become my DD even with a Porsche and Mercedes sitting in the garage. I open the hood once a year to change the oil. The only work I've done on it is consumables...tires, brakes, shocks. And it makes almost 400hp on regular gas. Maybe the most economical and reliable car I have ever owned.

It tows our AS great, and unlike our previous MH, I never worry about breaking down somewhere. Highly recommended!

Great info! I just purchased a 2011 5.7 L Tundra and a 2014 25Flying Cloud. Glad to hear they pair up nicely! The AS dealer said they would and the numbers all looked right, but you never know.
I will, nevertheless, probably have to watch the Tundra and AS payloads carefully. I am moving and bringing some important stuff with me like video equipment, small printer, small safe, important papers, 4 yorkies and their stuff, and a generator to run AC in Mexico & for boondocking.
Do you think the TUndra can handle this? If I drive slowly?

From NY to Gulf of Mexico to Belize?
Thanks!

You will be fine. No need to "drive slow", just drive smart and within your abilities.
