OEM power folding mirrors?

Did/does the Tundra come with power folding mirrors as an option?

If not, is there an aftermarket?

Thanks!

Limited mirrors power fold, and have puddle lamps. There is some extensive wiring that needs to be done to make it work, and you'll need the new switch for your dash. I took off my tow mirrors and installed limited mirrors. Blinkers and heat is functional, but no power fold. I'm too lazy and ill-equipped to run the necessary wiring to make it work. There is a DIY and diagram on tundra solutions I think, where a guy shows what needs to be done. Good luck.

Oh, and obviously they come standard on the $50k Limited Tundras.

TundraLA just did this mod. I think original limited owner traded to tow mirror. TundraLA had to buy mirror and switch but not sure if he needed to mess with wiring. Check with him.

If the truck isn't a limited, there are no factory wires ran for folding and puddle lamps.

I think the puddle lamps are on the 10+ Limited trucks.

I have an 07' Limited. I have the power folding, but no puddle lamps. I wonder if I bought some 10'+ mirrors w/ the puddle lamps, if it would be plug and play.

Ok, I just checked, tundrala has a limited truck, so his truck was pre-wired for full functionality. All he had to do was buy the new powerfold switch and plug and play. Any truck less than a limited will not be wired for powerfold, but you can still run your own wires to make it work.

Thanks!

I don't have the limited, but I do have the gargantuan mirrors with heat and LED signals so there's obviously some wiring out there. Guess i'll have to find a broken limited to pillage mirrors from.

I agree about the tow mirrors. They are real hard to get used to, and I never did. I traded my tow mirrors with a member for some limited mirrors, and couldn't be happier. You should be able to trade your tow mirrors for limited mirrors pretty easy. People love towing mirrors around here.

Thanks!

I have the OEM tow mirrors, and I read some where that they can extend. How it the world do I do it? I can't find anything that would let me.

REally tech question: If was able to find someone with power fold mirrors that wanted to trade, could I trade the switches out as well? Trading for a power fold mirror doesn't do me any good if they don't power fold.

I'd love for someone to show me how to wire a PAC Tr7 to the back of that switch that would make my mirrors auto-fold when I turn the key on and off.
