Anyone used this product?

Need to do alittle frame repair on the rear shackle mount. I found this product but it isn't one piece. The bottom is pretty solid it is really just the sides. My question is on the ones you can buy from quadratec have a round piece connecting the sides together for the hardware and bushing on the shackle to pass through. How important is that piece? Is it necessary or could you go with out it? Should I just pay the extra money for the quadratec pieces?

I have not used any of these.... difference appears to be.. the ones above you assemble then weld to the jeep.. the others are pre welded together.. saves a bit of time . For the one shown above or any of them.. I would also want to add some 3/16(?) side plates as extra support at the joint point between the new plates and factory frame.... If you feel your welding is good enough to make the box.. then save a few bucks.. if not get the prewelded units.. also compare thickness of material between the two...does the one above include the bolt hole mount for between the sides?

yeah,I have used them with good results.. I think I usually pay about 80 bucks a set for them..I don't assemble them prior to putting them on the frame.I assemble them on the frame.That way,where they meet,they are not only welded to each other,but also burned in to the existing frame

Did you attach a tube material between for the shackle hardware to go through the frame? Or is it not necessary?

depends on the condition of yours...all of them I have ever done,the tube was in good condition and didn't need replacing..I have a 91 yj that I did about a 1 1/2 years ago that we use pretty heavy on the farm,pulling 300 gallon water tank trailer and flat bed trailers loaded with more than a jeep is supposed to be.It has held up fine..

I like to grind as much rust off the existing frame as I can and then spray it down a few times with rust cutter before I put the new plates on..clamp the new plates on real good,one at a time so that they are laying perfectly flat against the frame while you tack them in several places..once you get them all tacked in,then weld the hell out of it..The instructions may be different,I don't know,but that's how I do it..Usually on the ones I do,after I get all this done,I weld in some short pieces of angle iron to beef up the connection between the back of these pieces to the rear cross member that the bumper mounts to..
