Default 97 Blazer Upper Cab Mount - Help!

I drive a 97 4dr 4x4 LS and my driverside upper cab mount is rusted pretty badly (noticed a little squeaking and a different feeling on bumps) and I've got a guy lined up to help me with it but I can't seem to find a replacement part anywhere. I looked at LMC and I could find a part that works up to 94 that seems like its the same dimensions but I can't find a 97 model version there or anywhere else. Anybody else ever ran into this? Will the 94 version work? Thanks

Went ahead and ordered the 94 from LMC, looks like it's not an exact fit but should get the job done, with that out of the way, anybody got any idea how long this fix should/could take? It's my daily driver and I'd really rather not take off of work, anybody got a guess?

A qualified body person welder should be able to get it done fairly easy. No more than 3 hours
