Hello jeepsters !

What to do... I have a 94 Wrangler that spent alot of time in salt. The guy washed it, so the body is OK, but now the frame where the right rear spring shackle attachs to the corner of the frame is ready to rot off.

anyone aware of a "kit" or a "prayer" that would work like a patch panel for the frame. Or is she junk ?

thanks for reading

Possibly get some bar steel welded to the frame?

Pics would help out a lot.

I had the same problem with mine. I went to a welding shop to see abot getting the frame boxed from the shock mounts on back just to make sure to get into real good metal and the cost was prohibitive. The welders also did not like the idea of welding a "patch" to the frame when there would be so much pressure on this area. So I opted to go to the junk yard and buy a straight frame off of a wrecked YJ for $300 and just set everything back on it. I did the sandblasting and POR15 paint job just to ensure that I would not have that problem again. Keep in mind that the frames on these are not closed, so the salt has gotten into the frame rails as well, therefore there sould be damage on the inside that you cannot see and a patch on the rear could mean more patches in the future. Just My Opinion, and what I did.

well usually once one part of the frame goes another part of the frame is about to go so you can bring it to a welding shop but some welding shops won't do it but you should be able to find one that will...but the thing is more of the frame is going to go somewhere else so you will probably have to weld it again not too long after so if you plan on keeping the jeep for a nice while i would suggest getting a new one or a good second hand one and weld on the wholes so water can't get in and rubber cloat it
