Side mirror swap to add turn signal and puddle lamp

I recently replaced my 2005 4Runner SR5 with a 2019 SR5. While I would have liked a SR5 Premium or TRD Pro, inventory is incredibly scarce during these strange times. At any rate, I got a great deal, but still would have liked side mirror turn indicators and puddle lamps. Unfortunately, these are not available on the SR5 or TRD Off Road.

Visiting eBay, I found these: Fits Toyota 4Runner 14-16 Set of Side Power Mirrors Heated Signal Puddle Lamp | eBay
They claim 2014-2016 fit, but I suspect they also fit 2017-2020. (?)

Aside from reusing my existing painted mirror shells, will these plug into a connection somewhere inside the door? Any experienced advice is appreciated.

Correct me if I'm wrong, premium models are wired for turn signals which the non-premium models are not. So these would not work.

Like gct4r said, your truck may not be wired for the puddles and turn signals.

For the mirror turn signals just wire it from the fender turn signal lights. As for the puddle, wire it from your dome lights.

Iíve read how Tacoma guys are doing the same mod and saw how the did the proper wires in the kick panel. Perhaps 4runner is the same.

I have a limited and my puddle lights turn on when Iím like 3-4 feet away or unlock the doors.

I have successfully upgraded my 2014-2020 Toyota 4Runner SR-5 to use TRD Pro mirrors with turn signals and puddle lamp.

This project would not have been possible without the retrofit wiring harness and detailed instructions provided by Tanner, aka Old Red. With his kit, you can upgrade the standard heated mirrors on a 2014-2020 Toyota 4Runner SR-5 to also include the side mirror turn signal and puddle lamp found TRD Pro mirrors. In upgrading my 2019 SR-5, I used aftermarket TRD Pro mirrors with the aftermarket sequential LED turn signals. I've posted the finished results on YouTube. Total project cost was $270 for all three products.

If you would like more information on the retrofit wiring harness, which was made using OEM Toyota components, visit Old Red's Instagram page.

Did you use the aftermarket mirrors from your first post? If so, how is the fit and quality of the mirrors? Thanks!

Yes, I used those aftermarket mirrors purchased off of eBay. They are okay, but fully aftermarket and not an OEM clone. They're still heated, although I have not yet tested that this works, and add signals and puddle lamps. Neither the signals nor the puddle lamps are OEM design, so those components are not interchangeable with OEM. In the end, they work, but they're not quite as durable (wall thickness is about 2mm vs 3-4mm for OEM). The painted shell was interchangeable.

Overall, they are not quite as well made as the OEM component, but you get what you pay for.

Thanks for the detailed info!

I have a '21 TRD Pro which has heated mirrors but no turn signal or puddle lamps. I am assuming that it is not pre-wired but does anyone know for sure?

It is not prewired in door harness, so you need aftermarket retrofit door harness from Old Red. Not to mention you need new mirror assemblies with signal and puddle lights.
