Re: Engine mounts
I put autofab engine mounts and transmission mount on my old Explorer and they were great. They held the motor in place like a solid mount but still absorbed a lot of the vibrations bcause of the bushing design. There's a good suggestion on Autofab's website. John types something like "take your hood off and see how much your motor moves while off-road...." I did and man was that thing flopping around when I was driving through rough sections.
They're a lot more than stock mounts, but you get a lot more. If you buy them, they'll be the last set of engine mounts you'll buy for your truck.
