TJ Frame

Not really a surprise but the part of my frame where the control arm brackets are welded are rotted. i could have the areas and brackets cut out and repaired or i could get a frame with no rot at all for $800. The current frame in my TJ doesn't look the best and a new frame would allow me to reinforce the areas that need it as well as have the brackets welded on much easier. how hard is it to swap the tub over? the repair will more than likely be less that $800 but is the new frame going to be reinforced anyway? looking for suggestions. thanks everyone.

I would cut out sections and rebuild them before I went to the trouble of swapping everything over.

Things like AC are going to cost more money to swap.
