    LMC Truck (http://www.lmctruck.com) has both the OEM design mounts and the Polyurathane kit from Energy Suspension.
    Both good kits.

    I'd get energy. Last I priced them, they were cheaper than rubber.

    THe only problem is with the poly mounts you dont get all the new harware and what not that comes with the LMC kit. LMC rubber mounts keep more vibration out of the cab too. There are trade-offs either way. I think Rubber is better for the cab mounts for the comfort factor. It takes them a LONG time to wear out. By the time the do wear out you wont mind replacing them again. Our trucks are all about 20 years old and most on original rubber bushings.

    If you can tell the ride difference poly vs. rubber, in one of these trucks, you've got a well-calibrated rear. :)

    im going to go ahead and order that body mount kit by energy susp from the summit link i posted. so nothing is needed to the bed portion on the truck? it just sits on the frame right?
