What's the best bet to get these out? Also, the bolts, how would I remove these? I'd guess they're rusted on good and the broken off mount parts would spin if I hit them with an impact. Maybe I could hold them from rotating with a vice grips? Check out the pics:





There are several ways. Some of spot welds might be able to be drilled out from the top. Some of them can be ground out with a cut-off disk on a die grinder. It is time consuming but you can get them off without destroying the cab. If you do drill them out from the top, plug weld them when you put the new mount in. It makes a very neat installation.
