Fender flare nutserts, or rivnuts. Where to get?

Hello Gents,

Did the extended flares awhile back...had to grind out many nutserts/rivnuts like most here prolly.....

When I installed the new flares, I could get nuts behind most, but there are two that'll need new inserts cause there ain't no way to get behind them for standard nuts.

I've seen here how to install them, but I'm needing either part numbers or a link to find the insert nuts....

I'm running a 2002 TJ if that makes any diff

Thanks for all the help I find here

I don't know what size you need, but I got some for my rocker guards at Fastenal. I think I paid around 60 cents each.

I've had the same issue on several rigs and bought a box of the metric rivnuts for the body that the flare screws use. Send me a PM with how many you need and a address and I'll drop some in the mail to you.

That's beyond nice of you to offer. I just checked out your site and know where to get killer brakes when I'm ready

My offer to send out a few of these very odd sized rivnuts for the flare screws was serious. Like most of us, I bought the standard package size to repair a couple of them and I doubt I will use the remainder since it is not a very common size that I've ever used for anything else.

Trust me, I know how you feel, but I bought a box of the stupid things to use only 2 of them and they are sitting there mocking me because all their normal size buddies get used all the time. They will go out today and don't worry about the mailing part because we ship stuff at least daily.

Glad you folks got them. If you need a couple more, let me know, like I said, a box of a 100 is probably a lifetime supply.

Hey Black Magic, I ran into the same issue with not being able to find these at the local hardware stores. I hope it's not to much to ask but, any chance you could send a few my way?

Jeez Blaine, that's awesome of you. I don't need any, but I sure appreciate what you're doing for others.

Just wanted to say thanks for everything you do on this forum. As soon as I make the step to 35s I'll be getting brakes from you.

Drill out the old one by cutting the flange off with a drill bit that is exactly the size of the body on the ones I sent. If it starts spinning, back off on the pressure and angle the drill slightly in a circle while it's drilling.

Put a 1/4-20 nut on the flare screw, screw the nutsert on all the way, insert the nutsert into the hole, hold nut with an open end wrench and turn the head of the flare screw. You'll feel it start to collapse and then get easier to turn and then it will tighten up. Snug it up and you're good to go.
