Rear support for body mount

Are these reproduced? I made one but I don't have a brake so it took forever and came out passable but not as nice as I'd like. Would rather just buy it than make another one but not sure what it would be called and haven't seen it in the catalogs.

Re: Rear support for body mount

I'm no sheet metal guru like so many others are on this site, but, I've bent steel on my work bench using strong clamps, steel plate over the edge I'm bending and start bending. A good strong hammer helps to. good luck.

Re: Rear support for body mount

That's pretty much how I made the one in the last picture.... After doing the one I didn't​ want to do another guess I'll just suck it up and start hammering.

Second one came out better and didn't take near as long to make. Guess I was dreading doing it for no reason...

I think there is a bushing in there also.

Bushing in where? These were practically falling off my tub after I took it off the frame so I could have lost something. It looked to me like they were just welded over the support for the rear body mount and the body mount goes between this and the frame.

Re: Rear support for body mount

It goes into the box you just built I'm guessing it keeps the box from crushing when you tighten it down. I will try and get a picture of the bushing on the one I have.

Re: Rear support for body mount

Oh, yeah there is some metal support structure that the box sets on but it's not a bushing. That piece is still on the truck and was in decent shape. I don't have a close up but in this picture I've got one box installed and the other off. I think that lower piece is what you're referring to.
