How Much will this run me?

I found 95 wrangler on craigslist. I have a $2000 trade so buying it isnt an issue. The problem is that the jeep has frame rot that need repair. I wouldnt feel comfortable fixing it myself. I posted some pix of the rot. Anyone have a clue how much it may cost to fix?

No pics showed, but I'd check with your local body shop. They can handle the welding for you, and depending on severity and location, they may be able to patch it up without removing the body. That will save you tons. If you need extensive frame reconstruction, you're likely looking at some major bucks, and if you're going to go that far, I'd suggest thinking of all the mods you want done, and trying to do a proper frame up restoration and rebuild. It's a good chance to do an SOA conversion and to replace all that rotted rubber with poly.

If they're removing the body, yeah, a couple of grand.
