WOH , WOH , WOH I take a day off from the forum , and the World is comming to a end , and HELL suddenly Froze over .
What is there to figure out ?
Dude its your Jeep nothing is unfixabul .
What is your alternative drive s Car ? Realy ???
Seriously like others said give us some pics , and some more detsils . I pretty sure we can give you a more accurate cost , and time assessment than a "Mechanic" . From your pics the condition of the body is good enough to keep it from being a lost cause . Altanator is not a issue , a functional transmission can be sorced from a wreking yard , or you can rebuild yours fore probably even less money . You have offers for a frame replacement , but lets see the issues its likely fixable . Theres got to be a Jeep Nut near you that can help someway with welding .
Remember its a life style
REAL JEEPS HAVE LEAF SPRINGS
NO REALY ,, IT IS HIP TO BE SQUAIR
