Body mount replacement questions

So I need to replace the body mount on my 2005 Supercab, its the back right one.
I've got a Dorman replacement coming tomorrow and have sprayed the mount and bolt head with Kroil. It doesn't look to rusty, just the rubber is rotted enough that it failed state inspection.

It seems like it shouldn't be too hard to replace but I'm wondering if I need to loosen any of the other body mount bolts to replace the rear one?
Or should there be enough flex in the body that I can just use some wood blocks and a floor jack and swap the mount without touching any other mounts?

I'll have a better idea when the part comes tomorrow, but when you spin the bolt up in the cab, what keeps it from spinning on underneath at the frame mount? I didn't see any place to put a wrench underneath.

Thanks
Bruce

The mount is supposed to lock in place, but if it's too far gone, sometimes you may have to hold it with a big pair of pliers or something. I'd recommend an impact wrench for the job. Yes you will need to loosen or remove additional mounts to get enough space to replace it or you will damage the cab. I was able to replace the back ones on a crew cab by removing the back two and loosening the middle two and tilting the cab forward. I think most recommend removing all of one side and tilting the cab to the side. I'm not sure how the supercab mounting points are configured.

I got the replacement part today but I'm a little confused as to what hold the bottom metal 'washer with a post' and the lower rubber mount to the truck (2 left most parts in the picture)?? Is it just friction? I thought the threaded part was on the lower washer but is actually on a part that sits above the frame mount.. When the assembly is together, I can just pull the two left most parts (in the picture) apart by hand. Since these are the 2 parts that are below the frame body mount. I don't know what keeps them from just falling off the truck? Friction? I'm thinking the threaded part might compress outward a bit and put compression on the sleeve on the bottom washer thing (left most gray part), or the rubber squishes and holds it on?

Is not that lower plate threaded, thus the bolt should screw directly into it?
It is recommended to loosen all other cab mounts before trying to remove one.

No, I thought it would be! the lower plate has no threads, there does appear to be something kinda like a thin tube with a few 'teeth' in the gray part, but the threads are in the silver part, which I guess gets sandwiched between the body and the beige part (which sits on top of the Frame body mount).
Below is an 'exploded' picture of what I've got.

The silver and beige part do like like the factory Ford part seen here: https://www.amazon.com/Ford-5C3Z-100.../dp/B001H1KFJ2

OK, it seems my confusion is that the part from Dorman was NOT put together in the right orientation! The silver part in my exploded picture is actually underneath the body mount with the beige part above it, the gray part and the black part must sit above the frame mount.
