Pics of frame rot?

I do not have a lift so the attached are the best I could obtain crawling partially under the vehicle. I had 2 mechanic look at it and said frame needs to be replaced. There is a manufacturer of frames for the Jeep located in Montana, I believe. Price is $4,000, which would be great but the labor would be costly, more than I afford at this time.

Looks like someone has attempted to repair it before? The welds look solid..

It was repaired in 1 spot, the pan I believe, about 10 years ago. But more rust has occurred and when I was having the tires rotated this fall, the mechanic told me he would not drive it far or fast due to condition of frame. I had 2 other mechanics look at it after that and they said the same.
 
It is Best Offer, so make one. Keep in mind the tires have lots of tread. The interior other than a stain on front seat, which was there when I bought it, is in very good shape. All potential rust spots were treated before they broke open. It has been maintained regularly by mechanic. All systems work, or did when I last drove it September 2023. It has been garaged since then and almost the entire time I owned it. (BTW, the mileage was incorrect. It actually has 168,000 miles, rather than 166,000.) I bought a new soft top that has never been installed.

I do not have a lift, so these are the best I can do. Hopefully, these will answer your question.

Just finished one for my daughter, now my wife wants one, 😢😢😢. So I’m looking for a new project. What are you trying to get out of it?
