hey, you changeout the body mounts on a 2008 f250 before? I got the bushings coming in Monday, but don't know if it's something I want to get into or just pay somebody to do.

I'm sure Marcus will pop in,,, but I've replaced them, they are not bad. Floor jack and a block of wood will give you room to r&r the mounts. It's usually only the rear mounts that give up. Watch your fingers

Ive done them on a few trucks before. I cant recall if the 08-10 was bolt head in can under carpet or not. If so that's the worst part is getting to the bolt head. If its under the truck it's a cake walk The front clip is the trickest one. Pull the front bumper to give room. Fords come apart easy .

Its really not bad Joel. loosen up opposite side, take the side your working on out... replace then tighten down. Its really simple being they come out the bottom, That means the threads are clean.
