Wink Cab Mount Change over

I am in the process of changing out the cab on my 77 Highboy. I purchased a 75 150 2x4 for a donor truck. I have already removed the bed and started doing the body work on that. I have already swapped most of the interior over - steering column, floor pans cut to accept the 4wd lever and 4spd. shifter etc.. The old cab mount cradles are in poor condition and I will be replacing the bushings on the truck when the swap is complete. I was wondering if the donor truck's mount cradles would work or do I need to repair the old ones? They appear to look the same but I have not removed them yet to verify it.

Are you talking about the ones on the frame? If so they probably are the same, they weren't for my years (61-66).

yeah I 'm talking about the ones on the frame. the original ones are very corroded. I was going to cut and reweld plate in them to bring them back to life but if the other ones will work, I'd rather just cut them off the donor truck and bolt them to my 77 frame

They should be the same, they usually never change that much it cost more
