I'm re-doing my mounts because I changed from the TH400 over to a 47RH trans, and that swaps the starter to the other side, which interferes with the left mount. The Dodge frame has holes in 2 spots for the oem style Dodge motor mount, and I'm considering using them. The gas and Cummins mounts appear identical, but the Cummins mount is $10 more, so I emailed Anchor about it. Here's the reply;
I received your inquiry this afternoon and the rubber durometer of our 2469
is 60, which is typically a bit harder than most mounts run. More often you
will see 50 as the duro on a typical mount.

Subject: Cummins motor mount info.
Hi. I have installed a Cummins 4bta into a 1981 Dodge Ram 2wd automatic p/u,
mainly for fuel mileage. I am currently using the oem slant6 mounts but need
to upgrade and I am researching which motor mounts to use. The Dodge frame
has mounting holes for the Cummins 2710 style mount. The Cummins 4 cylinder
motor is known for it's vibration, so I am considering using the V-8 mount
2469 instead, assuming that the rubber is a bit softer to absorb vibration
Your advice please. Thank you
