Does someone weld??

I got some pretty bad trail damage to my tj. Like break a couple trees bad damage to the back of TJ. I was just hoping instead of doing a full tub swap which is cheaper than paying a welder at a shop to weld in the new panels I could ask around for some fellow Forum members if they new how to weld and was willing to weld in a new passenger side rear fender, passenger rear corner, passenger side inner wheel housing, rear floor. I am willing to supply the parts I just dont have a welder or know how to weld I am willing to work a payment out with you. I just need help please.

The welding in that job is the smallest portion of the work involved. Cutting the old spot welds out with a spot weld cutter and getting it all prepped, drilled for plug welds, clamped back together straight and flat are the hard parts.

While not quite, it is almost an art form and if you want the repair to look even remotely close to correct, find yourself a body shop guy and get him to help. It will go much better for you and your rig.

I was gaping to buy savvy full corner guards over it So I was just wanting it to be semi straight so I can reattach a tailgate and full corner guards and have tail lights look correct
