2003 Hilux side mirror mod /upgrade

Postby Whoople on Wed, 20 Jun 2018 4:41 +0000

Hey guys

For a while now i've been wanting to upgrade the style side version of the wing mirrors on my Hilux to the bigger ones that come on the trayback utes, but i wasn't looking forward to drilling the holes further down to support the bracket.

After some digging I found a guy in the 4WD action forum that had put 60 series landcruiser mirrors on his lux to great success, as the criuser mirror bolt holes are the same as the hilux ones - http://www.4wdaction.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=116672
After seeing that I decided to have a crack at it myself

I ordered some cheap ones off ebay and got to work installing them

Here's the original mirrors

After removal


And installed

The only issue with this mod is that the mounts for the mirrors are curved for the cruiser door, but hiluxes have a relatively flat door, so you could either shave part of the mount back to flush, or pad it out with some rubber, as i have done

Another thing to note is that the mirror does not interfere with the weathershield

Also, here is a link to an album with the full resolution images https://imgur.com/a/LcTH22C

Great upgrade. Been looking at doing something similar. How do they look from the front from a few metres back?
