Is the frame bent on that ???? If you look at your photos right below the front edge of the door on the body the tub is buckled on both sides of the tub....Any damage history????

Or maybe its just the photo's

hummm o_O I just noticed that .... I checked the carfax report and it was clean. I dont know why it has that. It felt like a bump it wasnt that bad... I'm not sure how that can happen. Could it be from Flexing it too hard ??

na it would be from a inpact from the front or jumping the jeep and landing on the nose. look at the fram in that area to see if there are any wrinkles or if the body mounts look wrong.

Nice looking jeep though

CJ and YJ sheetmetal is not as straight and smooth as TJs. It could be just the way it is, and light in the pictures emphasizes it. Put rocker guards on it and no one will even see it again. :D

SOA. On my old YJ I used to run 4.5" RE Extreme Duty kit and it flexed great for SUA, but in the long run you'd be happier with SOA.

thats a very common crumple area on the cj/yj its probably been in a fenderbender... minor ones will do that to it... nothing really to worry about...as long as the doors don't rub. The gaps look tight in the rear, but hard to know without seeing it. Like I said if the doors aren't rubbing...the its good to go... like someone said...slap some rockers on there and no one will know...:thumbsup:

nice addition!

are you going to keep the rear rack?
