jeep frame

saw online today a 89 jeep wrangler, 5 speed, 2.5 engine, runs good, decent shape the only thing wrong it has a bad frame, like it won't pass inspection they want 500 for it, now just a question, how hard would it be to find a frame, what years would work, or even where can I find a frame, or where can I find this info out? and do you even think it would be worth my time to switch everything over to a new frame

if the frame is rotted, most likely the rest is. but if for some odd reason the tub and rest is useable, swapping just the frame is rediculously tedious. you'd be better to find a donor w/ a good frame and bad body and swap. also, that 2.5 motor is not that desirable for this amount of work. you can buy new frames for them now to, but pricey. you can find good yj frames on ebay for 300-500 bux pretty easily. any 87-95 frame will work, the six cylinder has different motor mounts on the frame though.
