Just my .02 cents....if you're asking if there is a way to do it yourself, then you probably should leave it to the professionals. 500 seems a little high compared to some of the work I know that my friends have had done, but it all depends on the extent of the damage. Some pictures would probably be good to see how bad it is

I just had my 95 YJ's frame starightened by a pro with digital equipment. 5 hours and $250. He couldn't take it to 100% because the numbers told him the frame would yield (crinkle) at just about 100% so he wouldn't take the chance on a 20 year old rusty frame.

It's easy to have good judgement with good equipment. Rides great and now I don't feel bad adding a lift kit. I wouldn't have done that with the twisted frame.

Get another estimate.
