Yep, I'm a bit intimidated by the drilling but I drill 3/4" holes for antenna mounts at work all the time without too much concern. I'll just have to be careful!I’ve been seriously thinking about the prinsu but that drilling I’ve heard is wild. I’d have to pick up a choke collar for the drill bit to not drill down too deep. Love the look of them though.
The rivnuts seem pretty solid so far. I was able to tighten the mounting hardware to them pretty tightly and didn't feel any movement, and compressing the rivnuts with the supplied "tool" was not difficult. That being said, the truck hasn't been driven since I finished the installation yesterday so the jury is still out on real-world security.What’s your feeling on the rivnuts? I’m so close to pulling the trigger and just using my mag drill to do the holes, but I’m mulling over the idea of dropping the headliner and using nylon nuts and longer bolts instead of the rivnuts. Do you trust the rivnuts?
So I'm working for a company that produces rivnuts and I can say that they are really really good when set correctly. The setting tool must be adjusted properly and the rivnuts must be from good quality and, ideally, have a knurling on the outside.What’s your feeling on the rivnuts?

Thanks! I usually like Fords myself (I've had a Bronco II , an F150, and currently have a diesel F250 for ranch work) but I REALLY don't like the look of the new Rangers... I originally hail from Colorado Springs, but abandoned the Front Range for some solitude about 12 years ago.Nice looking truck! I'm a Ford man but I have always liked the Colorado. I always thought that if Chevy had put a decent suspension and a beefed up engine, it could compete with the Raptor.
What part of Colorado? I'm originally from Pueblo.
