I had a major repair to about the same position by the front tie down for hook. It was an insurance job. Insurance offered me a buy out but I opted to fix it myself. Went back to the factory and fixed it for $600 and it looks like new and really stronger than original. But if U fix it yourself better make sure the one making the repair knows what they are doing. It aint easy and there is a right way to fix it and there is an easy get-by way. Make sure it is the right way,.
