When it fails I will put some goober welds on it & it will be just fine.
The portion of the frame that was scrapped was down to about .060 thick in spots & this jeep has already seen a fair share of flexing. I'm really not worried about the frame having a problem in that area. It is tied into the B and C hoops and they are tied together inside the cabin. So the structural integretity of this is not exactly stock either.
By the way, the engineer on the job was my 8 month old grandson.:tonka:
