Frame rust issues, need advice

Well I just recently had a fun time removing my skid plate, 3 of the six nutserts were spinning. I used a prybar and an impact gun to get them off, and in the process I managed to punch a few holes in the bottom of my frame (where the skid and the frame butt up against each other). I would like to have the section replaced, is there any shop in western MA that could replace both sections (drivers and Passenger)? I've heard good things about endangered species jeep but I was curious if anybody knew of anywhere else that could handle patching it up.

Elias 4x4?

There are some companies that make pre-stamped patches for Wrangler frames. You might look into it.

Quite a few guys in the clubs I belong to have done this frame repair. Its always better to hook up with Jeepers who can help you do the job yourself rather than pay somebody else to do it.

if you blew threw the frame there I'd highly recommend you look where you control arms mount to the frame. These a typically the problem areas of the TJs. I just chopped the back half off my second used frame if that means anything.
