YJ rear frame fix
Started with a small hole that I let go for a year or so. Finally had the time and place to mess with it. Didn't think it would be to big of a job.... well the entire section was rotted beyond repair so I made a new rail. Originally i was going to grind the welds smooth....but I think i'll just leave it be. Adds character

Looks like that should work.
I will be chopping off the rear section on my YJ soon but I am going to make it sit flush with the bottom of the tub and use 2x3" tubing, might cut out the rear sill too.
It all seemed solid until I jumped it at the Crawl event at R&V, it bent up a little and I noticed a crack on the bottom of the frame in front of the rear tire.
This Jump <----------
Fox air shocks go on after that.
All part of the fun.
