body issue?

if anyone can help me out that be great. the 1st pic is my left side (driver) rear near the tail light where that part meets the body and the 2nd picture is the same area on the right side (passenger). Clearly the driver side is ****ed up, does that need to be welded back together to look as good as the passenger side? any help would be great, long time jeep lover and this is my 1st jeep so help ASAP. thanks

Must have been repaired in a body shop at some time. If its loose it will need to be welded up. Next sand blasted in the joint to remove the rust. Primed with epoxy primer,the joint filled with seam sealer then repainted. All because of a poor repair.

The seam would be spot or rosett welded from in the wheelwell. That is if its loose. First pull the inner wheel liner and inspect.
