James Duff has a set of the blue poly, holding up so far, only about three months installed so far, I made my own replacement hardware for them.

Not seeing them... I'm looking for the bracket itself that mounts to the frame

Okay, misunderstood. Last time I fixed them on a B2, I used thick alloy grade 8 washers, about 3" wide and attached them to the rusted out bracket. Since the front body mount uses these:


and these:


which are a pain to duplicate, which I have done to make a custom mount, I would make my own steel frame brackets and just use a regular generic body mount from Summit Racing that takes a 1/2" bolt.

4x4 x 1/8 (11 gauge?) would be enough and when cutting the upside down L shape bracket, do it at an angle so it looks like a triangle from the side.

Just bumping this to the top for the OP...

Still looking for a set of front cab mount brackets; they are attached to the frame with 4 rivets just above the radius arm bracket. Not able to find online so if anyone knows a part number or has a parts truck please leave a comment.
