Frame welding help

I am looking for someone to make a frame repair for me. I can have it towed or you can use my garage, but I only have 110v.

I cut off the rotted back of my cj7 frame. I bought the rear cross member and a pair of these

The problem is that you are supposed to keep the top and the about an inch down to weld to but that was all rotted or gone.
Now, I have ended up with this. The red is how the frame ends on both sides.


pm me a price if you want to weld it up.

How is the rest of the frame? I have seen many CJ-7 frames that are in good shape go for $250. Although you would have to swap everything over, it would be good knowing that you have a solid frame.

thanks for the offer to help.

with winter on its way i have too much to do so i'm looking to drop this off and wait for the phone to ring to pick it up.

I think i already proved to myself that I am no good at sticking metal together either.

IMO if you've prepped it correctly, you've done the hard part. Get a welder and practice lots. It's a LOT of fun once your learning curve starts to flatten out. Then fix your frame. You'll save more than enough to pay for the welder and all the other things you will inevitably use it on will be free. My $.02.

Looking to fix whats there and not re-invent the wheel.

I am planning on welding this up and selling the jeep.
So, I plan on the repair price being taken out of my sold jeep funds.
