Damn that's crazy. Could you see any indication of it before you pulled the cage?

No. All hidden by factory b pillar and factory seem sealer. No way anyone would have ever known.

Got the patch panel cut out and fit. It needs a few tweaks and some holes for the cage.

Ground out some welds in the front shock towers and had a buddy weld them up again. We also got the sheet metal patch spot welded into place.

Seam sealer is done on the patch. I have to do some final sanding and prep the garage for painting on Saturday morning. Hopefully the following weekend I can get the bedliner done.

I could buy 6 sets of these pins for the price of those. Stainless is nice but not THAT nice. If this was going to be a DD I would consider it for the salty winter, but this thing is not going to see the salt or snow.
