Arrow What kind of motor mount to replace to?

Ok so I looked at my passenger side motor mount and the oil exploded out of it. Surprisingly the engine doesn't even move all that much but I was wondering what the best after market motor mount to get would be. Do you think the duralast motor mounts are any good. I do take my truck off road also. I was thinking of going to a solid mount but that sounds like it would be to rough on the engine. Thanks for the info

No, you don't want to go with solid mounts. The vibration that would be transfered to the frame would get pretty annoying very quickly. I don't know of any specific mounts that are really much better than others, I just usually go with whatever the parts house has in stock or else urethane mounts if available.

But then I've also seen some cheapo mounts that look as if they'd come apart at the first good bump...
