My jeep had rust in the same spot, I used a patch panel from Raybuck and it was an awesome fit and cheap, you can see it in my build

Ok, after waiting threw the first 999 posts of not cool Jeep build stuff, I'll hop on bord this one for that little black dot with up dates....

ALSO, Looks good with the new rubber and mud man, have you decided if you like this one better that your old one?
Also how much did you like the BW flats, I'm kinda on the fence between those and just doing TJ rears in a bit here

I like this jeep a lot! I loved my other one too however. I loved the black but it was a pain to keep clean. Red is a little easier. I miss the cruise from old jeep, buT will be installing in this jeep ASAP. They both have there Plus and minus.

I liked the bw flat flares. If I get pulled over ill get a set for this jeep. IMO they look awesome as long as the tire fills the flare. These definitely will. But I like the flareless look A LOT!

I wanna go doorless so bad. But i worried dont wanna kill unibody. My dad has a set of safari doors from his cj so I might try and rig something up... but Idk yet.

...Right Place at the Right Time? Ive been watching since the start be didnt feel the need to pipe in till just recently. Sorry if I nabbed it from ya

And Spokes, I'm guessing the best answer to that rusty bit is just to pull a Civil War Surgeon and chop it off... Lower Quarters are fun and all but so is weight reduction
