Ripples in body w/ pics

Ive had these ripples in the body since ive owned my jeep. They are on both sides at the bottom of the body under the doors. Are these common or is it damage from the previous owner? Thanks

Mine has the same thing, not sure if it's factory or not though. I just assumed it was from boots hitting it from the PO

i think your talking about the pinch welds? Those are factory and its how they fasten two panels together, they kinda work like rivets...

Yep, I think we have a winner! They're all like that... I believe this is the reason for it.

I got them too, mine aren't that far on the body though. Mine are behind the small flare right below the Jeep emblem.

Yeah, I have them too. They are normal, but keep an eye on them. My one side is starting to rust on the dots (06 tj).
