    Hello, is there ANY way to not cut holes in the floor to get to the body mounts? The first 2 are obvioulsy accessable. But the rest are under the body. Anyone who has done this please give me some info. Thanks

    If I remember right, the rest are threaded from the bottom up - except for the two above the rear axle which are just under the rug.

    I don't know YET. My front cab mounts have rusted and stripped out, (the welded nut inside, broke loose and just spun, so I cut the bolt) Sooner or later I'll have to tackle this and would also like some pointers, if some one has been down that road, drop us a line please.

    Edited; Um, probably should have read the FULL question first!

    Walt88, no fear. Normaly, the bolts are exceible (s/p?) from under the body, Nuts or bolts. Usualy not a problem. I think in my case, the floor was rusted out, and the 1/2 impact gun on the rusted bolt didn't help out.- so don't use one of those -K-<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by Twiztid on 07/25/01 10:15 PM.</FONT></P>
