this is what you should do. cut the nut off, lift up the rear carpet and remove the bolt. The actuall cab mount is still there, its just the underside that is effed. Purchase a new bolt with some BFW'ers. Go to MCsports or similar and buy a hockey puck. Drill the center for the bolt. Reinstall the bolt, slip on the puck, install washer, lock washer and nut. done.

Moved it for you.

You can probably find one in a junk yard, or weld a new plate on that one on top

I did this on my dads truck last fall. Also did all 4 on my truck, I dropped the tank. For my dads I welded in T-nuts. The just bolted the hanger up with 7/16 Grade 8 bolts. Otherwise, the tank should come out
