Who does frame repair?

My TJ has some frame rot in the standard spot right in front of the rear tires. It didn't look too bad until I started with a hammer and Metabo. I'd rather have this repair done professionally than try it myself. Does anyone here do this kind of work?

I was thinking of those, but just having a shop do the work. They weren't that bad to do? I haven't welded in a while, and my welder is a flux core Lincoln Home Depot special. I don't want it to be an issue when I decide to sell it.

If you were closer to GR, I'd refer you to my family's shop.
