    I got some poly body mounts for my Jimmy awhile back and I was wondering if the 2 front body mounts were supposed to be smaller than the original rubbers. They are smaller in diameter and thickness. I know I bought the correct kit for it. All the others are thicker than the originals. I was just wondering. Thanks for any help.

    I don't have the stock ones to look at since I had different plans when I tore the truck apart. My front mount will only be different since the stock front radiator mount will be 15" in front of my grill,LOL!!! /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif

    my grill will sit on top of the first crossmember where your p-valve is located.

    the wagon is also 9" narrower per side.and my rear body mount was moved forward 3"
