Re: frame repair
Boy, that's a tough spot. A whole new frame horn wouldn't be a bad idea, so the repair spots aren't directly under the shackle mount. If that's not an option, I think I would remove the bumper mount, replace the bottom of the frame rail from the end of the frame to where you have it cut out. Then replace the shackle hanger, bumper bracket and then, box the inside of the frame rail from the end to the crossmember.
I'd get several opinions here, then follow the best plan or a mix of all the opinions. Other members may have a better remedy.
