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.
I gave 6 grand for it.. 4.0 standard trans. Motor sounds good and drives good for the most part had it on the interstate it felt fine. Is this something that I NEED to fix asap? And is it worth the time? Should I just try and sell it and find a different one? Would anyone pay 6 grand for a jeep with known rust because I’m not for doing dirty deals and hiding it like what was done to me. Thank you
