Any ideas on how to fix this?

May remember me, I'm the one who got drunk and bought a Jeep on Ebay!
I noticed a problem while replacing my pads/rotors.
I don't do welding, any idea on how I can fix this?

If you don't weld there may be a welding shop that could do it for ya.

Beats getting drunk in Vegas and getting married. Besides the Jeep will probably last longer and retain more resale value.

I would put a really heavy duty eye bolt onto the nut (to the right) and lock it down tight. Then use a chain/come along to pull it back to the side. Hook one end to the eye bolt and the other to a tree or something. Heat the metal sides where it is bent with a propane torch, then slowly pull it back down where it should be. If the whole jeep gets drug to the side, chain the frame to something else on the opposite side or use more heat.

a bodyshop with a frame straightening rig would be able to chain it down, heat it and pull it back over for you.

Not if you want it done right! Cut it off and weld on a new one.

There is. replace the entire axle assembly. Didn't say it would be cheap.

There are 4 courses of action available to you.
1 - Do nothing and hope it holds together (not recommended)
2 - Bend them back with whatever means you can devise. (remaining strength of the metal may be an issue)
3 - Torch them off and replace (Preferred, even if you have to pay to have it done)
4 - Replace or upgrade your axle. (No welding required)

There may be other courses I'm not seeing at the moment.

Like rketr stated, someone local should be able to do it.

We've all done things when we were drunk, At least you remember. I've woke up with some butterfaces before and wondered what the hell I was thinkin'

I guess it's true, they get prettier at closing time....

You bought a Jeep on eBay hammered I wish I made decisions that good wasted.

X2 on a shop welding that for you. What did you bounce that off of?

I'm glad you are all getting a good laugh from my drunken escapades...

This was not my worst drunk ebay, one time I bought a broke down Ninja 250. Worst part of that was when my wife woke me up the next day. She said “Did you buy a motorcycle last night” and I was like “NO, well maybe, Yeah I think I did”! Still own it.
This time I was in the market for a cheap Jeep to mess around with, had no idea how well these Jeeps held their value. Picked this 2001 up for $4500, but it’s a 2.5L Auto, slow as hell, but still fun to drive. I did not hit anything, was like that when I bought it.

Anyway I live near Toms River NJ, anyone know of a good place to take it to?
