Right were the body pan holds up the transmission on both driver and passenger side. Long story short instead of selling i got a new frame for $400 well a used frame with no rust at all. So what im doing is just swapping frames adding lift while im at it but it seems to be very common the reason is the frames have holes were water gets in and rots them from the inside so you dont see it. They make plugs you can plug the frame up and you will be golden.
Dont sell your jeep though for what little money you can get not worth it jeeps are big legos hope this helps =) keep on jeepin!!!
Her is a pic of my jeep and the new frame
I hope this worked out for ya Super Jeep! It's finally spring and I saved up some cash, so now considering my options for a rebuilt frame. I hear ya on being in the same boat, I will NEVER sell my jeep, even if it takes replacing the entire frame lol. I plan on doing an overhaul to my Jeep this summer, the cat converter needs replacing, as well as my tires and I'm in dire need of a tune-up, so thinking this summer of doing a frame replacement, changing the cat converter and muffler, and getting some 31s for tires with a lift, and tuning her up. I'm uber excited to get started, no better way of blowing my cash
Also has anyone got an update on the class action frame recall?
