rear drivers side spring bucket?

I think that's what this thing is called. The attached picture is not of my jeep, but I am using it as a reference. I came in to research the issue and darkness has set in. I think the part is called a spring bucket but I'm not sure, either way mine is rusted out pretty bad and I'm starting to get concerned about my safety while driving. I will post a picture of mine tomorrow to show you the extent of the rust. I am asking about how hard this is to replace, does it have to be welded, or is it a fastened in piece. Thank you all for your time.

It is welded for sure.

Here's a picture of my rust issue with that part. My mistake the issue is on the passenger side.

In order to replace this you will need to cut the old mount off, grind down smooth, and weld new mounts to your axle tube..you can get these mounts from many 4x4 sites like artec or ballistic fab
