Is this repairable?

In everyones opinion, if this were the only spot that was rusted out like this, would you be better off repairing or just getting a new frame?Click image for larger version

With rust like that you can almost bet thats not the only thin spot on the frame. Get a hammer and start hitting the frame and then you will find the weak spots.

Get another frame or another jeep and part that one out.

Unless that rusted Jeep has collector value and you have lots of cash, the advice to part it out and find a donor frame or Jeep is right on.
