You don't mention what year/model you have but there are different motor 
mounts for 3/4 vs 1/2 ton at least in the AD years. I don't recall which 
vendor I ordered from but they sent the wrong ones. They claim they were 
right but I know I have a 3/4 ton and I compared them to the old ones before 
trying to install. I'd bet the "other" version will fit.

 But after mounting the rear ones to the engine, the holes that are supposed
 to match the frame crossbar are both about an inch offset (in opposite
 directions, so it's not that the motor has moved to one side or the other).
 Has anybody encountered this with repro motor mounts? These came from Jim
 I'll probably just drill new holes in the mounts, but I was wondering if I'm
 missing something obvious here. Most likely it's just another case of poor
 quality repro parts. >>
