    If you mean the rubber mount part, no, those are separate parts. The rubber mounts also have a steel washer/thingie in them, too.

    If you meant the steel part that is welded to the underside of the cab floors, yes, those are a part of the body.

    It's not too hard to replace those since they are spot welded in place. Just a matter of pressure washing the underside before you start and then looking for the spots to drill out. Once the spots are drilled out, remove the rusty mount and install the new one. Weld new spots and you are done.

    In reality, this was a simple quick thru on how to do this job. There is more involved in order to do a good, lasting job. Let's see what others have to say about this job as far as R&R goes. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
