Default YJ frame repair ???

So I bought a 92 YJ knowing the frame needed some work. My question is at what point do I say this frame is too bad to fix and I need to replace it? The frame has the "normal" rot but it is also rotting in front of the rear axle as well. I see most of the repair patches seem to start above the axle. I have access to a waterjet so I can make my own panels but at that point would I be better off to just replace the entire frame?
Thanks for any help, Nathan

I patched my old yj frame, then it broke next to my patch. repeat, repeat, repeat... Finally replaced the whole thing which I should have done in the first place.

Bondo and JB Weld are not good examples of "patch".
