Review of the CIPA Slip On Towing Mirrors


Today we're going to be taking a look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors for the Driver and Passenger Side, part number CM11400. Now, you can also pick up the driver side sold separately, part number CM11401, or you could pick up the passenger side separately, with part number CM11402. It all presents a wide field of view. It's going to allow us to safely and easily change lanes, pass, park or even back up while towing a trailer or camper. As you can see, I'm visible in the towing mirror, but not the factory mirror. If I take a few steps in towards my trailer as you can see there's no blind spot by the way we have it set up, but this is the view you'd get with just your factory mirror. With it installed it's going to give us a total length of 18 1/2 inches.

The mirror itself is about 6 inches tall by 4 1/4 inches wide. The housing is constructed out of a durable ABS plastic, so it's going to stand up to corrosion. The mirror itself can be adjusted to most angles. We've got our up and down, diagonal, and side to side. The housing on the bottom here and on the top is not going to interfere with the movement or operation of our factory mirror, and we can even still fold it in.

Here on the back side it's going to contour your factory mirror. It's really going to maintain that aerodynamic shape. Now, the kit does come in a quantity of two. It's a no drill installation. Now we'll go ahead and show you how easy it is to install. You want to be sure that your factory mirror is clean of any dirt or debris.

You also want to be sure the inside of your CIPA mirror is nice and clean. Now, before we slide it on I'd like to point out that it is going to cover up our turn signal, but it is going to improve our line of sight, which is what we want. We'll just line it up and then slide it on in place. Just like that. Now we can move on and grab our wedge. Now, the kit does come with two.

The thicker one is going to be for standard mirrors, which is what we have. The thinner one is going to be for, like chrome or capped mirrors. Once we've chosen our wedge we an then take the adhesive padding. We want to peel back the back side and put it in place like that. For demonstration purposes we won't be doing that, so let's go ahead and grab our hand knob and our thick wedge. What we want to do is take our wedge, we're going to turn it to this direction with the hole, and we're going to push it through the notched portion here. We want to line up that hole with the spot here. Then our hand knob is going to go through. Just go ahead and push all the way on until it kind of cups the back side of our factory mirror here. Then we can go ahead and get that started. The passenger side installs the exact same way. That's going to complete our look at the CIPA Custom Towing Mirrors for the Driver and Passenger Side, part number CM11400.

I have a 2020 Ranger Lariat. I like the idea of the CIBA mirror and can live without the turn signal but under the mirror is a puddle light and a sensor for the "Lane Keeping System" which works when towing as sell (so I want to maintain it). Does it have knock outs for t these or do you know the measurements for modifying (drilling out) the bottom to open these features back up? Thanks

The CIPA slip-on towing mirrors are pretty neat, but unfortunately the only towing mirrors that we have that fit a 2020 Ford Ranger at this time are universal options. One set I would check out are the K-Source Universal Dual Lens Towing Mirrors # KS3990 . We actually test fit these on a 2019 Ford Ranger which I'm linking for you to check out.

I am looking for extension mirrors for a 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4 wheel drive truck

We don't have a custom fit version of this style of towing mirrors available for your Tacoma, but I have included a link to the universal towing mirrors we have confirmed as a fit at our facility.
