Northeast Indianapolis - Good Welding/Fabrication/Repair Shop

The control arm mount on my 2004 TJ has rusted through and become detached (pics included). From what I gather, this is a pretty common point of failure due to rust and SafeTCap makes a part to replace it. I've brought it to a few shops nearby (including Church Brothers and 4 Wheel Parts), but they say it isn't a the type of repair they'll handle and 4WP made me aware of the SafeTCaps. I'm looking for a place that would either install the SafeTCap or even fabricate and weld on the part themselves. Jeep only has 147K miles on it and the rest of the body/frame is in decent shape. I just need a place that will do a bit more rural of a repair to get it to last a bit longer before I'm willing to say goodbye. I'm from southern Indiana and have family there that have mentioned a few places and the SafeTcap website mentions a shop in Martinsville, but in its current condition I figure I'd need to flat bed it anywhere and that is a bit of a tow. Hoping to find someone a bit closer with a good reputation among jeep owners. Greatly appreciate any advice.
