Exclamation Front cab mounts replacements?

So I just got redone building a dodge I sold it and bought a 94 7.3. Sadly I got it from the original owner and he didn't take good care of it I already ordered all my new parts for it like my driver side floor, rocker support, rocker panel, front and read pillar. I'm getting two fenders a driver door and a rad support and two rear shackles and mounts. I know I got myself a project but the truck just had a new trans and transfer case put in it only 1k on them and the engine runs good. My question is my cab mounts are rotted out just the front two passenger and driver side. Can I order new ones to weld on or do I have to fabricate my own. My idea was getting 3" square stock and cutting it in half and making it the same size as the original cab mount jacking the cab up and welding her on. But if any one knows where I can get real cab mounts I would really appreciate. I only paid 1100 for the truck so it's definitely worth fixing especially because I'm keeping it.

I think they would be rotted at the junk yard too mostly all the fords have that problem even the radiator support is common. I called the yard today and they told me just to buy a new rad support because all of the fords rot.

By cab mount do you mane the actual pice that is riveted to the frame?
If som the cab mounts can be bought used and just bolted on.

For the rad support mounts, you can get them new Ford or aftermarket

As for a rad support, NOTHING is made NEW. the aftermarket LIES and send you a GAS support which will NOT work. You HAVE to find used. Good luck, they aint cheap IF you find one PM me if you want one, I have several rust free ones from the south

Yes I'm talking about the actual part that is riveted to the floor I was going to cut the rust out and weld new metal in and make it a square. I mean the piece of metal on the floor not the bushings and bolts. For the rad support Its actually not rotted I thought it was its actually just the mounting bracket the bushings are shot and ****ty looking.

Yes that's the piece I'm talking about but I have a bunch of metal and only part of it was rusted out so I was going to cut it and patch it back together for know. Plus I broke the fitting off of my AC condenser and I was going to splice it together with rubber hose but I might as well just buy a new condenser so I don't have to take the whole front of the truck back apart. Also the holes in the front of the cab support would it be ok to weld them shut I feel like the front ones rot so bad because of the hole.

The large hole in the front of the mount allows you to flush out the mount. Welding it up will trap all of the dirt/salt/ moisture since they ares not sealed the rest of the way

Ok I'll probably just use some steel I have an fix up the mounts and leave the holes open. Might as well fix everything correctly the first time. I'm replacing the brake lines with Copper nickel lines $24 for 25ft of It on ebay cant beat that.
