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.

Thanks

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.

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.
