Anything can be fixed. The direction you take depends on what you have as far as tools and experience.

Are you talking about the body mounts on the front of the cab at the firewall or the ones up at the radiator core support? If it's core support, replacement core supports can be purchased and bolted in. If it's the body itself, then you will have to fab up replacement plates, cut out the old, and weld in the replacements.

A 2x4 will never last. Even pressure treated would only be a temporary fix and one that would lead to more extensive damage to the body of the truck due to trapped moisture.

What is your goal with this truck? If you just want something to last for a year or so, you can basically do whatever you'd like. If you want it to last a long time, you will need to use metal and get it put back together properly.
