Ignore my question on width, as I now see you do have the 15Ē. I plan to order and will see what they say about the clip not fully wrapping around. I have sent them the dimensions of the visor including thickness.

I might try some sort of semi permanent-ish double sided tape on the vanity mirror and light lense. This might also alleviate the 2-hand operation to deploy.
Starting to think I should have gotten the bolted on version.

Not sure either, thatís what the Land Cruiser forums suggested. Magnets on the visor and a tiny sheetmetal
Hidden in the headliner, etc.

Update: so the test mounts failed to cover the gaps completely and will require a complete redesign of the mount if they were to release a 4runner specific or tacoma specific visor in the future. They don't have a ETA as to when this will happen since this company mainly focuses on airplane applications, and not necessarily vehicle applications (unless there were dual applications already designed).

The current mounts offered are "universal" for a reason, it is to fit a multitude of platforms without needing vehicle specific mounts, so the mounts do not fit perfectly to each vehicle but are easily remedied (see DIY)

Vehicle specific mounts are really expensive. Rosen was kind enough to send me the schematics and allowed me to purchase an additional mount at wholesale to play with, and it wasn't cheap.

DIY solution: cut plastic spacers or 3d print some spacers to cover the gaps, and place the mount above it. This is perfectly suitable from a DIY standpoint, and will make any OCD person happy.

Currently, the interior of the vehicle is getting some forged carbon goodies, so I'll update ya'll when I get the chance to take some new pics or if I get off my butt and 3d print some spacers. I'm currently really happy with this setup, so making 3d printed spacers is on my very long list of "to do" projects.

Disclaimer: I am not sponsored by Rosen. I paid full price for the universal visors, and I received a test mount that didn't quite make it past my initial testing, and I paid wholesale for another test mount to play around with.

cheers!!!

The permanent install version do look very clean. But I didnít want to remove the factory visor.
yeah i spent a few days trying to figure out which version to buy. I even changed my order at least once...lol.

It's hard for me to explain, but the overall attention to detail and design of the permanent mounting won me over.

I just like cool stuff.

Following up on my factory visor sag issue. After trying some velcro and tape methods that doesnít really help. I learned that when not deployed, instead of folding the Rosen toward me, I flip it to face forward. Doing so put the factory visor back to its original closed position. This doesnít block my driving visibility. Hardly noticeable looking ahead and from outside.

Iíll take a bumpy drive to see if it vibrates much. But I think problem solved.

Installed this AM. Had to run an errand plus bumps on roads and noticed no sag as you described. Did have the OEM visor mirror end clipped in the retainer.

Also no 2 hand deploy as you noted. Perhaps you did not loosen the Allen Head screw a bit that allows easier deploy. I loosened it just enough to easily deploy with one hand but not enough to allow it to deploy by itself on a bump. Also keeping the OEM visor clipped at the mirror end assists in one hand deploy.

I am really happy with it and since the sun was just rising got to use it on several occasions. Great addition in my opinion and well worth the price.

Good to hear. Please share a couple of photos on how yours is clipped on. I might have mine too far toward the endÖ?
