Need 2nd opinions on repair route for my 95

I've got a 95 Rio Grande that was 3in body lifted by the previous owner. I then made the mistake of wheeling it pretty hard after I did suspension and a locker. Now the tub itself is settling around the body mounts (spacers) all along the passenger side. I am going to remove the BL all together but by this point the spots that mount the body onto the frame are mangled beyond repair.

My repair plan is to try and find a salvage tub and go from there. Does anybody else have a better idea or any tips? The bodywork is easy for me as I am currently employed full-time at a body shop. I'm just somewhat apprehensive about framing off a Jeep for the first time.

Any input would be awesome!!

If you work at a bodyshop, making new or repairing the mounts can't be that hard.....all the tools needed should be there, welder, torches, bender etc.

How's your paint? If your paint is in bad shape it may be easier to just buy a salvage tub and swap it over to your frame. Then all you'd need to do is paint.

My paint/side panels/rockers have pretty mild damage and the paints trashed. Haha
