Replacing cab mount wedges

I have a 74 Scout II and the front cab mount wedges are rotted and need replacing. Wanted to know is it necessary to cut the floors out to replace the wedges? From what I can see underneath looks like the floors are still solid? Trying to decide if I try to tackle this myself or pay a body guy to do it?

We almost always find rust between the layers. Most likely you will need the upper mount and the front half of the floor to get the job done correctly. You could always cut out a small patch on the floor above the mount and see if you find rust between the layers.

Thanks for the reply... After posting I went back and looked under the truck and could see where the body mount panel was rusty and quite flimsy so I am guessing to get that out and replaced you will have to cut out some of the floor as you mentioned above. I am not a welder so I will probably have to have someone do the fab work for me :-(
