New Style Cab Mounts

Did some searching and I'm coming up short. Is there an install guide for the cab mount replacement?

I bought my truck used, how do I identify if it still has the old style mounts? Anything tricky about replacement?

No install guide that I'm aware of, but install is very straight forward. Easy to just remove the bolts from the rear mounts, slightly raise the cab near the rear of the cab. Remove old body mounts, install new mounts, lower cab, install bolt. That's about all. The old rear upper cab mounts will look identical to the front 2 cab mounts, however, the new upper mounts are completely different shape. That's the easiest way to tell them apart. I have the cab mounts in stock and ready to ship if needed. Let me know if I can help.

Is the nut on the cab side captured or do you have to remove interior components to do the install?

Nut is captured. Loosen all mounts, jack up cab, r&r rear mounts, torque down new mounts. Hope this helps.

Pretty simple. I'll check mine out tonight and make sure they are still the old style

I need a set of fronts and I guess I should change the rear while i'm at it. How much shipped to gulf breeze, FL 32563 Thanks

As far as I know, yes. No confirmation on whether or not the new hydraulic mounts will fit in all body mount locations. (I have a feeling they do.) Honestly, I think people were so impressed with the results from the 2 rear mounts, they deemed complete replacement unecessary.
