Re: 1994 Blazer chassis restoration and driveline refresh

I've been so busy, I've just now found some time to sit down and organize all the pictures.
I've owned the truck for 9 years and I knew the back half of the frame was getting rusty and I retired it from winter driving 3 years ago. So 6 weeks ago I peeled the frame out from under the body and set to work.

The pictures pretty much sum it up but here's a short list of what's being done:

Engine is original and has been rebuilt with a cam and taller pistons as well as a balance.
Transmission I am rebuilding with a stage 1 shift kit.
Differential is being changed out to a 14 bolt (3:73 lsd)

Exhaust will be custom stainless dual, not too much flash. Overall I'm really going for a stock look. I'll refinish the original alloys and the body is so clean that I'm not even touching it right now.
I am the 3rd owner, each of us has put 100,000 kms on it. It's never left me stranded so I'm giving it what it deserves.
I sandblasted the frame completely and have brushed on a first coat of POR 15.

Can anyone recommend good body mounts. I've been to LMC truck and GM doesn't offer them. LMC truck only has polyurethane mounts but if I was to go that route I'd probably order some from energy, can anyone shed some advice here?
Also I see Dorman may make some but I'm having issues confirming that.

Edit: Looks like it's polyurethane only, found a second brand called 'Prothane' but I opted for the energy body mounts.
