    You get the mirror off by literally yanking it out. Adjust it all the way in or out so you can get fingers behind it. Then you forcefully (but controlled) tug at the mirror until the 4 pegs pop out of their mounting holes. They're kind of in a circular pattern on the back. Be careful, as there is a wire plugged into the back of the mirror for the heated mirror feature. You'll have to disconnect that and there's not much slack.

    After the mirror is off...
    I don't remember the order, but there are a few tabs to pop out inside and then the actual top of the mirror housing pops off. Be careful with it. There are tabs that need to pop off and it kinda will feel like it's gonna crack. Can't recall If there are screws to remove in there somewhere.

    And the side blinker will kinda be hanging at that point. That pops out too. Pretty much the whole thing gets disassembled to access the bulb sockets.

    Be sure to get some bulb grease and add it to the bulb base/socket. When I did my install, the bulb and socket was wet. Likely from washing the truck. But as a precautionary measure, I'd grease it up in there real good.

    It's not a difficult mod, but it's not really a fun one. I just kinda "felt" my way through it and got it done. I remember feeling like I was gonna crack something or break a tab on almost every step of the process. Take your time. Pay attention to plastic tab locations.

    No...the ones on the bottom of the door are courtesy lights...the ones on the bottom of the mirror are puddle lights..so if you have an off-road I guess you don’t have them as previously posted by another member

    The lights under the side mirrors. The Tacos don't have these from the factory.

    Installed the Viofa A129 dash camera this morning before it got too hot in the garage. Had been in the Rav4 since last fall and have been happy with it. The standard cable for the rear camera is too short so will have to order the extra long one. These are great dash cams for the money IMHO.

    No problem. It records and saves video while driving or parked. The one in the pic is forward facing and is wide angle so will "see" two lanes to either side of the vehicle. Could be useful for determining fault for accidents, moving violations, or parking hit and runs. I have the same dash cam in the Taco. Thankfully so far I've viewed recorded videos for entertainment purposes only. :D

    TRD ORP and I have the puddle lights. Now I have to add red LEDs to my ever growing list of things to do. Curious to see how the fogs turn out, please post up info as soon as you get them in :cheers:

    Thank you! Just got an email from McGeorge Toyota that the skid, all weather floor liners, cargo tray, and TRD Pro wheels have shipped! No word yet on the LED fogs.

    I don't know why I didn't consider the OEM fogs, I just ordered the Morimoto and now learned OEM are cheaper! Can you please post before and after pictures from inside to out for lighting output .... Thanks!

    I think the Morimoto are going to be a lot brighter. Seems like I read that somewhere recently.

    The Toyota OEM LEDs are actually brighter than the Morimotos. Here's a good thread on fog lights. Go to page 45, post #882 for Morimoto/Toyota LED comparison data.

    I wouldn't sell them to get the Toyota LED fogs. Check out the KC, Rigid, or Baja fogs (test pending) in crashnburn's TW thread. I have the KCs on my Taco and they are awesome.

    Installed the TRD skid plate and OEM black LED fog lights this weekend. Didn't have to chase the rear threads for the skid. Went in behind the fender liners to install the fog lights, didn't remove the bumper.

    All weather floor liners fit and look great as they do in the Taco.

    OEM all weather cargo tray. Not as rubbery and grippy as the floor liners.

    Also installed Phillips H9 halogens in the low beams. I run these in the Taco and brighter than the stock H11 halogens. Still waiting on the Avid Off Road rock rails...
