I got a quote from a body shop that would cut it out and put in new metal and re weld everything for $350. I might have to go that route, since I don't have time to find another jeep to drop my engine into....but the shop takes their sweet ass time doing stuff.

Mine did the same thing, everywhere else under the jeep looks awesome and is great except that, cut it re-welded it in about an hour and a half. and did it in my garage, if you have the tools and means to do so, do it yourself, that way you can guarantee your own work.

My buddy first drilled trough the frame and mounted the shocks that was for the rear. He re did the back of his frame and now used old shackles cut for new mounts in the same spot. He is runnin +2 soa so it actually fits his shocks in there more comfortably. Just a suggestion haha not the stock way but it works.

It sound like the best bet to have the body shop take care of it.

Hmm I might have to call the shop...this Jeep doesn't like me much I don't think... Thanks for the input guys! I have ziptied it to the frame so it doesn't move around everywhere so far lol

Here is how we welded a new shock mount in, so far it has held up fine. Three pieces of 1/4" strap iron welded to the frame and each other.
