OE/stock body mounts

okay, so i've decided to remove my body lift from the fx4. bcuz at the time i was a noob and wasn't prepared to try and tackle it, i had a local shop (4wp) do it. i've checked the PA box and looked around and don't seem to have the original stock body mounts. so my question is, whomever has done a body lift on their ranger, if you have the stock body mounts and all (hardware: i.e. washers and whatnot; i will get new bolts) and are willing to part with 'em, drop me a pm w/a price. thanks.

I thought you kept the stock body mounts on and just put the blocks underneath?

the factory body bushing are used with the bodylift. All you should have to do is remove the blocks and install the stock bolts

except the front bushing where threaded and you have to drill out the threads so you will have to either buy new one's or use a longer bolt and nut like it is now...

if you have any tools at all your wasting your time and money to have a shop do it.. read the install instructions from the web site and see if you can handle it.. have a few friends come over and bust it out in a day...

there are some tricks i can point out if your gonna do it...

Yea im seriously considering putting one on. I would probably do it mostly by myself with help from my dad. The only problem would be finding where everything is. Also, I heard the cab bolts might be kind of hard to get out. Lastly, im a little nervous that I might break something because everything is pretty rusty. Other than that I really want to put one in haha.

does anyone who has put a body lift on their truck have the cab mounting bolts they would care to give up? should be six (6) of 'em.. including the two front that are no good (just so i can have referrence when getting replacements).
