    Sounds good. Not an expert on posting pics using the phone. But Photobucket has an app for the phone that works well. Makes uploading from the phone easy

    That rusted area in the bottom of the rear quarter panel? I had the same problem with mine, ended up cutting it all out and welding in a plate to make it equivalent to the cut and fold mod.

    I second using the photobucket app. I use it all the time. Easy peasy.

    Here's a thread I found when I was doing much of my research on the cut-n-fold of the rear quarters... I used this as a rough guide, and made the rest up as I went....
    http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/c...t-way-1007865/

    Check my build thread for pics and the write up on how I did mine....

    Thanks josh!

    Like i said i had a boat load of rust there and couldn't do the mod exactly like others.



    So i cut off the bad, leaving about an inch of metal.



    Bent them over



    Welded on a 16 gauge plate



    And finished it up.



    It is a lot of work but takes care of that rust pretty good and now you can get a rear bumper that's made for better clearance.

    not sure why im not allowed to edit my posts. i have to fix the pic links to show pics.

    heres what my week consisted of.
    went to put on new rotors and pads and this is what i found.




    scraped off all the clay and found that the ball joints have play in them. dust sheild was so rusted it just fell off when i took the old rotor off. pads were gone and cracked.
    one caliper has a cracked/broken pistons(works anyways)

    so since i had access that day to shop tools i attacked the rear qrtrs
