Where to get body mount material

Does anyone know where to buy polyurethane body mouting material that can be cut to the desired length. 4WD Hardware sells rubber in 24" lengths, but I really want something that will last. I have a fiberglass tub so the precut kits won't work. Thanks.

FWIW, (for what it's worth)...I thought you shouldn't use poly for a fiber tub. Somthing about poly won't flex much causing tub to crack????

Re: Where to get body mount material

I purchased an AJ,s body and was told that it should not be a problem,
then again if you think about it,the way most everyone ties their roll cages into the frame the soft cushy bushings are worthless.(4wdhwd,s system)
I am in process of making a mounting system to use factory bushings on my new body.
so I guess ill find out first hand

Re: Where to get body mount material

You might try some of the boat supply stores to see if they have boat trailer rollers in poly. I bought rubber ones from West Marine to make bushings for my roll cage tie-in mounts. It's very hard rubber with very little, if any, give to it; it's probably as hard as poly and holds up well. FWIW, I have an AJ's Deluxe body and front end, and I used their pre-cut rubber bushings (~.5" thick that I stacked to fit) to mount the body. AJ's bushings are fabric re-inforced and are not spongy like regular rubber. I've had them in for ~4 years now and they've held up very well to both the TX heat and the salt and sand of SFL.
