Hey guys! First post here as I bought my first jeep yesterday. I F’d up. Broken center body mounts on both sides and the back two bolts are loose? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have buddies with lifts and ability to weld in repairs. Just wondering how bad I messed up really

I wouldn’t be too worried. All TJs have rusted out frames lol. Is that rubberized undercoating? It was probably used to hide rust, but the smooth metal beside the rust looks promising. So if you have friends that can weld, tell them to go to town with it .

Yea epoxy undercoating he said. Anywhere I poke with a knife underneath is solid. Any clue why the back two are just spinning in place? Assuming those are completely done for too.
Yeah they’re probably toast, but it’s a common rust point. Basically even in areas like that don’t have winter/sant, they tend to rust around mounts and bolts because of the crevices where water/dirt/sand can collect.

There’s worse TJs out there. Is it dangerous? Not exactly from a drivability stand point no. Not exactly safe if you run into something but anyway lol. Don’t worry too much right away.

I’m guess that TJ has aftermarket fenders because the old ones rotted off lol. Did you steal it for $6k?? No…but that’s basically the going rate for a TJ that runs and drives but needs work. So dont feel bad. If it works good and the rest of the frame is there, you’re not in bad shape
