frame repair shop
 
Hey CT jeepers, I've had my TJ for 13 years and new to WF. I seem to have the dreaded frame rot issue. My rear upper control arm is rusted off, through the frame. I'm looking for a good frame repair shop that can fix the frame so I can use it for wheeling. The one I have found is: Auto Repair and Detailing Manchester, CT They seem like a good choice, was wondering if anyone had experience with them or heard anything about them. I live in NW CT, but willing to travel to get it done right.

From what they sound they are good. I talked to them about my center section at skid rot over the phone. Was looking at $1500-2500 to fix and couple weeks. If u know a good welder you can buy the frame repair sections pretty reasonable from quadratec.

Wow, 1500-2500 for just the straight section without brackets, guess I'll find out more in a couple of weeks when I scrape up the cash, then give them a call. I have seen that frame section you're talking about, just may go that route and have a good welder install, depending on price from these guys. Main thing is to find a fix that won't make it the weakest link, would hate to be wheeling thinking about it, if you know what I mean. :eek: Can't wait to have it fixed, this leather heated seats, 2 pedal, low to the ground, power everything (boring) car is killing me! :p. Thanks for the input.
