For us to get a good idea we need to see some pics...see what Mods you already have and how many parts are good and could go on new vehicle or would transfer to the new frame...honestly if the frame is that bad IMO I would look for a clean stocker and use this one for Parts....assuming you can afford 2 ?

If you love working on your jeep and have the tools and ability it would be a chance to go thru everything, because you will touch just about every part on it. I can't think of a more in depth project than changing the frame. Good luck to you if take on this project, keep us posted.

Is it the rear control arm mounts? If it's just this section, they sell frame section caps where you cut out the rotted and welded these frame caps inplace. They come with either just the lower mounts or the longer section with the uppers also. I had both sides of my TJ replaced, but the rest of my frame is in good shape, so was worth the fix. I don't know the full extent of your rot issue, it may be an option. Good luck with fix/swap, I know it sux.

Yeah the rear control arm mounts broke off the frame and there's holes in my frame itself but if I could replace parts of if rather than All of it that would be better
