94 YJ frame repair advice/help


My son purchased a 94 YJ a few months ago. It turns out that there is some frame rot. It seems that the rear end shackle mounts will have to be replaced, and there is a spot in front of the rear tire on the drivers side where the frame bends up for the tire well.

driver side spot

passenger side shackle

Any advice or if you know a good place for this kind of work in the Pittsburgh area (we are 35 miles north east of the city) would be greatly appreciated.

There is a guy that makes splints for this over at greatlakes4x4, you'll have to search frame repair on their forums.

Here is a pic of a complete kit for $120:

Here they are welded into place before prime and paint:

And here they are finished up:
