welder in southeast Michigan

Morning folks

I have a 1991 YJ that needs some frame work and I am wondering if anyone
knows of a welder that would be able to inspect my jeep frame and either tell me what I need to order or they order the parts and do the welding? I live in Macomb county by Mt Clemens.

If you go ahead and do a search for rusted frame, read what you find, then you'll be able to ask intelligent questions when you call local frame repair shops for quotes.

Try to PM :

He is in your area and is extremely knowledgeable. There aren't too many things he hasn't done to a Jeep!

You should post over here too. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f325/

Taking something like this to a shop without doing the preliminary work yourself is an invitation to a huge ripoff. There's a big difference in telling a shop "do this and weld that" compared to "what do you advise?" Not everyone has the time, tools, skills or workspace to do a frame repair but either way knowledge is your friend. Also, if it's really bad don't be afraid to swap the whole frame.

YJ frames generally rust in about three places; at the rear shackles, around the steering box and at the skid plate and to a lesser extent at the rear shock mounts.

Here's a couple threads to get you started

One more person to try and get in touch with in your area is Chris. He's up by Armada but close enough.
