I installed a full set on both sides of my son's frame. Worked great. Tonight when I have more time I will post some pictures and elaborate.

Oh gotcha, thanks. We don't get much frame rust here in SOCAL so it's not something I'd have ever looked into.

We get loads in England. We tend to just weld new steel in.

When I bought my son's 2000 tj the tcase skid was falling out. The frame where CAs and antisway bar attached were also rotted on both sides. I ordered both center and both CA sections.
I installed both CA sections first.

I measured from the existing rear CA mount to the front CA mount so I had a reference.
Then I started on the center sections, again measuring. The centers I did have to do some trimming

It is recommended to remove bottom inch of the frame being repaired. Plasma cutter worked great for this.)

For all the work I had to do, I just raised the tub off the frame. I also had to change fuel pump and upper shock bolts. While I was at it also installed 1" body lift.
IMO, if this repair is done correctly, the frame is as strong or stronger than factory.
Those are my experiences with this product.

I know this is a post from a while ago, but that is perfect for me. How are they holding up after a couple years? Do you remember about how many hours went into the entire project? I have to do mine and I need to get the center frame for both sides and the rear trailing arm for both sides. They make a piece that has both out of one solid piece of metal. That is what I'm going with. Hopefully it works out.
