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 not the best picture, but the rust is on the sub frame of my xj it's about four inchs long an is pretty much in the middle in between my leaf spring mounts right next to the gas tank
