Was unable to source an aftermarket front cab mount bracket or find a parts truck to steal from so modeled and had pieces cut on a buddys plasma table. Going to verify fitment and make revisions if necessary then make a few extra sets for those in similar situations; give me a shout if you are in the market!

Interesting this comes up for older Rangers. The 1967–1972 F-100 pickups commonly have cab mount problems too. Much of it is probably rust weakening the mounts.
