Repair Question?

I have a 2005 TJ Wrangler with only 33000 miles on it. I just noticed a few tiny small "bumps" on the paint on the rocker panels just below the door opening! I felt in the back of the area and it is all still like rust or anything. What the heck caused this and should i have it repaired now or wait abit until it gets abit worse. By the way...i also noticed that the tiny bumps have a slight brown color now as rust!!! Other than that the Jeep is like new still!!
Thanks for any ideas!

Those bumps are rust forming from the inside of the panel out,not an easy fix,unless you know body work and welding panels'll have to be cut out,new welded in and new paint blended in at the minimum...

As i said i felt in the back of that area and no signs of any rust at all...just a few tiny bumps on the surface of the paint.

Repair Panel

I found that i can buy a repair panel from Quadratec that will take in the rocker panel area. Is the rocker panel area a 2 piece panel....outer and inner?? It feels along the edge that it is a 2 piece inner and outer panel?
