i was thinking of just cutting the section at the scrap yard cleaning up the damage and welding over top but im also taking other ideas.. long arms are a little out of budget right now since i wouldn't be able to afford the tires to match a lift.
im taking a pole the damage isnt to bad i am going to need new axle brackets if theirs a place that sells them please let me know... i was going to do a 2 inch BB but since i need new control arms upper and lower and shocks should i just go and do a full on 4 inch kit like this one http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep_zj_4-900.html or another brand with a similar price point taking suggestions
finally got the time to tart fixing it cut the bracket the rest of the way off
took 1/4 inch square tube and plate drilled it out bolted it then welded it in place seems like it will hold but theirs only one way to find out.. the bolts go all the way through the floor and i added some 16 gauge steel and welded up all the gaps
the shop has aligned it and haven't had any movement yet besides that theirs 2 pieces 1/4 inch of steel plate and square tubing welded together and welded to what was left of the frame i didn't trust boxing it and welding the bracket to the steel i would have put over their was significantly more rust then expected bolts are just back up as im not a professional welder
That's not good man. Not good at all. That frame needs to be fully repaired before even a long arm kit goes on. To plate the stock mount on you should have plated the whole area, then installed the mount, you can't have the gaps as they are greatly weakening the frame. I'd start over before you go any further.

ill have to re cut the hole those gaps that are their now aren't their any more was just a test fit to make sure everything was gonna line up theirs an entire sheet of metal over the entire area then bracket is welded to that with the bolts through......not really sure what else to do with it any suggestions would help was adding the square under everything a bad idea the 16 guage i bought which was as thick as the the unibod didnt seem like enough thought it would be to flexable the entire thing is in closed now but under it all is square and plate
