Need replacement rear shackle mount to weld into frame

Should I just use cut tubing or is there a part sold by a Jeep company that I could buy for this repair? My rear shackle mount which goes through the frame recently tore loose so I need to do a frame repair in the back and will probably replace the rear cross bar at with something heavier at the same time...thinking I should get the shackle mounts sourced before I start my project.

Thanks,

Nate

Just use tubing. I can't remember the I.D. off hand but all you need is some tubing.

Thanks Rusty...I think im going to weld in a section of frame and replace the rear 12 inches or so of mine. I think I will also splice in a more robust rear cross member at the same time.
