I have the same problem except its on both rear sides. I have neither the time nor the equipment to do something like that so I'm having a shop do it for me. It's gonna be pricey but the frame needs it bad. It's not at the point where it will break anytime soon, but I don't want to wait till then, obviously. I think the rust is mostly because of road salt and the Jeep probably sat in grass or something for a while before I bought it. The rust only showed up when I started poking around...it looked perfect when I bought it, but under the under-coating there was a surprise....ah well.

Great job again.
Good luck with your frame work. I used this thread to give me the push I needed to repair mine, both sides. Lots of great info.

had the same thing on mine, found out that the stock c channel bumper works well if you cut it and use it as a brace

Great job on the repair. Any input on it now that its been over 3 years? How is it holding up? Would you recommend us to do it now that you have done it?

I will be needing to do some frame repair as well as fix some broken shock mounts. I need to purchase a welder. What type and size welder would be the best option considering I will be using it for all kinds of repairs on my jeep?
