Like Stone said, your stock body mounts stay there, and the bodylift block is set in addition to the stock mount. You still need a mount.

Like Mr. Kruger said, what broke? the rubber mount or mounting bracket on the frame??

Youll be sure to find one, and they would probably let you have it for jsut a few bucks.. may sure you bring a good set of tools to get that bed off though
