Help Wanted on YJ - Frame Rot near rear shackle mount :(

Hey all,

I've got some serious cheese on the rear passenger side of my frame rail around the rear shackle mount on my YJ. I know this is a very common problem so was wondering if anyone in the Central NJ area has had experience replacing the section. I'm going to order the frame rail section from Quadatec (this part) and while I do nearly all the work on my Jeep myself, my welding is not good enough for such an important job.

Any welders out there willing to help me? I'm willing to pay. Or does anyone know of a good welder/body shop they would recommend in the Princeton/Trenton/Hamilton area that won't charge crazy cash?

Any help appreciated!

Thanks in advance for any help/advice!


92 YJ. 2.5 (temporarily) 5spd. 5" lift. 35"x14.5" Super Swamper Thornbirds.

Any body shop can do that for u. Just do all the prep and have them weld it up. U can fit it and tack it in. It would prob be 2 hours labor or so for Tyne finish weld. Then u can clean it up and paint it yourself.
