How much do you plan to spend? Most shops are in the business of making money and this type of repair is not something they would tackle for cheap.

You might try hooking up with a Jeep club. There are usually members who have already done similar repairs and can help.

I'm not trying to spend to much. I registered for the osj forum a couple weeks ago and was planning on talking to a couple of the member during go topless day, but now it's looking like I may not make it

It's a little tight I was planning on removing the gas tank when I get it fixed so that should free some up some room
