We stripped my hubby's jeep down to bare frame, now the amount of rust we thought was there has turned out to be a heck of a lot more.
There are holes on both side by the rear shackles wich we were thinking of welding some plates over, but then we found the drivers side has a nice rusted through line going on the frame running from the rear to the front about 1 inch at the widest and about 3 feet long.
Now we do have access to a welder and we have the metal sheeting to cut it out and everything, but my question is this, If we weld these plates over all these sections is this going to mess with the integrity of the frame?
In other words, there are so many place to weld that I am worried about the heat from welding causing some weakining in the metal of the frame.
Should we try to repair all of these or just bite the big one so to speak and get another frame?
Also would anyone know where we might by chance find another frame?
