Default Cab mounts/ cab supports for 1998 Dodge Ram

Anybody know where to locate, who makes aftermarket, where i could buy, get, steal, trade for front cab mounts for my club cab Dodge Ram? My front mounts are rotted out pretty bad. Actually pretty weird because all the rest of the mounts on the truck are fine. Its the mounts closest to the firewall under where your feet would be. I've looked everywhere. OEM doesnt have them anymore, the part number for them originally was 5016868AA. Any help would be really appreciated.... im trying to not have to have them made. Thanks in advance.

you are talking about the poly bushings between the body and frame? pretty sure you can get them on ebay, no guarantees on quality though, lol

No the actual metal mount that is welded to the cab floor. Its called either a cab mount or cab support.

when I replaced the front ones due to an accident, I just cut a rectangle tube at an angle, no bending necessary, just cutting drilling holes and welding.

You might have to get a auto wrecker to cut one out of an old truck, I have been looking as well and have yet to find any new ones out there.

Thank you! Yeah they are rotted out pretty bad on both sides. Only mounts on the truck that are bad actually. I'm finding them online for older trucks but not mine. Seems like alot of work to make something to fit.

Any news on these? I've been looking for them every once in a while, still no luck. I have made new ones, but they were done in a hurry so the end result is just sad. First I made was drivers side middle 2011, then passenger side middle 2012 and lastly drivers side front 2013 (under the pedals). Now I'm looking the passenger side front to be next, but noticed that the front fender don't align perfectly to the door, there's more gap at the bottom. On both sides. Apparently I wasn't careful enough when I made the drivers front, even though I lifted body to make support taller that the rotted one, it's still on a wrong height. So I decided to lift the body off the frame, and replace all the supports I made, either with new ones or from stronger material. I used 1 millimeter sheet (which I think is 19 gauge), and that probably isn't strong enough, even though I made supports in them. Might have held if just been street driven, but offroading places much more strain to body mounts.

I think cutting them off an old cab is the only way nowadays really. Theyre no longer available anymore new.

Got any pics of your work? Im sure others in the same situation might interested to see!

These folks have them for 1981-1993 trucks maybe you could make them work.

And knowing availability of cuttable cabs in here, it's really not an option. They're either as bad as mine, or too good to cut.

I'd rather post pics when I get it done properly, as the last support was made knowing that I'll do it again in better time. It was much, much worse that what I was prepared.

Thanks, but I've learned in the past, that sometimes it's better to just make one from scratch, than to make something already existing fit correctly.

I am getting the two front mounts this week from a wrecker that is going to cut them out of a truck for me. So I can get you the other four if you like, not cheap by any means but the are in mint shape and much better than building a set. PM me for info you like. I see you are in Europe not a big deal just shipping costs thats all and they are not that heavy or big.

Thanks for the offer, but unfortunately I have to pass. I was crawling under my truck this morning, scraping off mud and looking all the rust damage and made disappointing discovery, and also remembered something from few years back.
Front right support is corroded off from the rocker, ok, I kind of figured that. But what I didn't remember was that when I replaced corroded rocker panels with 3"x3" tubing 6 years ago, I should have used 3,5"x3", because when I mounted that tube flush with the outer panel, it left 3/8" to 1/2" gap between the tube and cab support. So I ended up pounding support ears against tube and welded the together. This left openings to all the supports, which were nice passage for water/mud/sand and road salt to enter support, and the rest is history.

So long story short, my hasty repairs and bad planning leads to all custom supports. Damn.

Hi there i just joined thi forum, the pseudo is yvestr...Talking about these cab mounts, I Have the same problem with my 1997 Dodge Ram3500 Clubcab(the 2 behind the firewall and the other two behind these ones, approx 25inches from the back of the cab). Have you found any new info as for where we could get our hands on some? I've searched in the junk yards(even had the clerk make an internet request for them, the reply was none had them.I found a vehicule in a junkyard and found them in pretty bad shape. I can get them for 10$ea. just to have them near by & i'll make new ones form, that's only if i don't have any other choice. I'll be waiting upon your reply, thank you very much! By the way, I live in the Laurentians Qc, and here, the trucks over 10Klbs have to be inspected every year. My truck looks pretty good and is worth to spend the money to fix. Dont know how to insert a few pics from my PC to show you...

I don't think they are available new anywhere any longer...... That may be your only choice.

I have four used front mounts and two rear cab mounts, $100 each plus shipping. PM me if you are interested in them.

I did change mine out back in June. Lot's of work if you want to make them look factory. Expect to find rust in the floors boards where the mount goes.

From this, drivers side






To this.
