Tj Need shop or someone to repair trailing arm

Guys... just went to get the Jeep inspected and found out the drivers side, rear trailing arm on my TJ is rusted out on 3 sides really bad!!!

I found a company in Cranston, RI who makes an aftermarket trailing arm for the TJ, but need someone to cut out the rusted one and install the new.

Does anyone know a shop I could call? Any ideas what it may cost to do the repair? Below is the link to the trailing arm I can purchase.

Rich, tried to PM you but your inbox is full.

I took the Jeep down to the shop that sells the piece if the frame I need. The entire bracket on the frame that holds the upper control arm on was broken right off, so the upper control arm was just hanging there. The shop is going to do the work as I did not feel comfortable cutting that large section of the frame off.

I have a 3" zone lift that I need to install once I get the Jeep back, was planning to do it myself in the driveway. Any chance you would be willing to give me a hand? I can turn a wrench pretty good but know a second set of hands would be pretty handy.
