2 screws hold in the back edge of carpet down, phillips head screws. Then the bolts are under the rubber plugs that you will see.

under the carpet against the back of the cab there is a box member that crosses the back of the cab. on either side there is a rubber grommer cover and under that against the bottom of that box member are the blt heads.

the other bolts are under a screwed down sheetmetal cover (oval shaped)
under the carpet on the front foot wells.

If you bolts are loose you have a collapased mount.

The mounts are not "rubber" but rubber over an internal steel structure
the steel inside them rusts and the rubber can't support the weight.
