Ill get a pic up in a little bit. The area it's at I think would be best just cut out and a new piece of metal welded in. However i'm no body shop guru so once I get pics up will be posting looking for someone in the area that wants to make a little $ on a side job. Only need to cut 1 1/2" off for the flares. Clearance really isn't an issue for her. It's a light trail, dunes, 2 track dd.
OH........and an fyi for anyone doing this little bolt on mod.........remove the windshield wiper fluid basin before drilling ....it's under the driver side fender.....yea.that was a mess when the drill punctured it....
....guess who will be hittin a junkyard for a replacement. Yep...this girl.
