Let a shop fix it. There is foam in there that holds water unless that gets pulled out you will keep fixing it. It's rusting all along that opening or will.

Re: body work rust bubbles help!

i think that is what i will do oem flares every junk yard i stop at all the fx4 they are already sold! and dealer wants 200$ per flare almost for oem i have no idea where i can get them for a good decent price i dont care about paint matching black is fine with me. but what i will do is sand it down and coat it so it cant come back but it will look stupid without flares covering up the paint. any one know where i cand find decent price? oem or other manufactuare for flares
thanks for they replies

On the inside of the wheel well, there is a seam they seal with foam. The rust is coming from the inside out. Eventually it will come right thru. Flares will only mask it. It needs to be cut out or a new bed side needs to be put in. (or new bed even...that's what I ended up doing).

It's a common problem for that area to rust through.
