Central jersey work request...

so, my friend had the idea of posting the work i need done on my jeep. i figured i'd give it a shot, so here's what going on...

i had all the bolts that hold up the drivers side of the trans plate pulled out, i realized the first one was going while i was at school, and today while i was driving the remainder pulled out. the bolts did not snap, they literally got pulled pulled out of the frame so while i was driving the trans plate started hitting the highway. i need this whole section welded up with new bolts put in. if anyone knows of any good shops in the area let me know. my area code is 08807, it's where 287 and 78 meet. thanks for reading guys.
PEACE

You need to buy these first>>ART-99L - Autorust Driver Side Center Skid Plate Mount Section for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ - Quadratec They make one for each side.
Make sure there's good frame to weld them to. Better go over every inch of the frame and find the rest of the bad spots, if any.

I also suggest posting up detailed pics of the exact area in need of repair.

Joe, I tried to decide if this should be moved to that area or leave it here. Think it can live here for now.

OK, now you need to get a screw driver or small hammer and start going around every inch of your frame, jabbing at it. Not just taps either, give it a good jolt to check for rot.

Don't bother getting it repaired if you need to replace the entire frame, know what I mean???

yeah i know, i was actually going to do a complete replacement about a year and a half ago, but after looking of the rot it looked like it was just the front where the powersteering box is. i should have just gone for it... but hind-sight is always 20/20
