Gas and nunya are right wicked. Rubber mounting only increases vibration. And welding your mount solid is the BEST way. But as long as you can get a good, flat, solid fit on the stock mount it'll be fine. I like using the u-bolt mount for my front mount. I'm using the double u-bolt but the single u-bolt works well also, and it's only $10 on ebay. The double is more than twice as much. But these are kinda for the bigger frames.
