Okay, there was this long post out there about buying a new frame for a CJ-7 rebuild, but what about repairing frames? Anyone ever do much of that out there? Pro's and con's?

I've decided to buy the new frame because I've repaired mine (welded plates over the damaged area) 6-7 times. I can't keep up with the rust. Every year it needs more welding. The rust has made some of the metal so weak I can't weld to it. In a place other than the rust belt a 20 year old frame might last a lot longer after a repair.

It depends on what you use it for, and how much extra money you have, I guess. If you're going offroad and beating the yell out of it, patch it up and then fix the patches when they break. If you use it on road, patch it up and fix the patches when they break. If you can afford a new frame, buy it. I'm into patching, myself.

Can you tell I have one kid in college and will have two next year?
