    Hey all..is a rubber body bushing necessary when mounting the body to the frame? Ive seen folks use them, and some not. Does it really matter??

    I used a drive belt for a hay bailer. That is what they called it at "Tractor Supply" It is a rubber fabric flat belt about 6 inches wide and 10 feet long. The belt is about 3/16 to 1/4 inch thick. I cut pieces to fit between body and chassis at every body mount bolt. Oh course my T is all metal with no glass but I still would have used it even if I was fiberglass..:cool:
