Has anyone on here used a riv nut to mount a lund visor? I have gone threw so many windshields that the holes are junk I want to install Nutcerts (rivnuts) whatever to it can be alittle more serviceable.

Yes. That is how they are mounted on a BIG truck. Just make sure you seal the nutsert to the roof and also seal the bolt to the nutsert

Re: Rivnut for Lund visor?

idk if the holes were messed up from the screws or what but I drilled the holes per the instructions installed the rivnuts and they pulled threw on 2 and ones spinning in the hole with the bolt half in... it pissed me off so much I walked out and have been driving my dump truck all week.

Re: Rivnut for Lund visor?

I had a visor on my 97, the holes pulled out due to winds, so I put bigger screws in, which also pulled out, then I got some elevator bolts and nuts. Removed the head liner and drilled clean thru, installed the flush nuts with some JB weld to keep them from spinning. It held for as long as I owned the truck from that point.

Not sure if the superdutys are set up the same with the double walled metal around that area, but it worked for the OBS.

Re: Rivnut for Lund visor?

id take headliner out and fanangle something from the back side, with a tig welder, or JB weld and nuts to some sort, im not a big visor fan, but if there was a visor on the truck I owned, and I wasnt gonna spend the money on having holes filled, this is what I would do, just please dont go as far as leaving visor off and lug holes with something just to keep water out, crap just looks too noticable!
