Sub frame out

Removing the sub frame turned out to be a bear because the damage made some of the bolts inaccessible. I guess a shop would have just used a torch.
All I had was a saber saw, so the cutting was slow and difficult on my back
on the garage floor. Once it was removed I found a small crack in the transfer case and a broken right motor mount bracket. I wish I had taken up stamp collecting instead of XI repair. I'm now in the market for a sub frame , sway bar, motor mount bracket and probably more.
Please comment if you see an easy way out of this mess.
