To secure the parking brake, 1981 models had a steel bracket welded to the inside of the tub and located approximately above the "Jeep" body stamping. Years ago, the bracket welds broke on my truck, and the parking brake assembly has been loose or rattling since.

I have not fixed it due to my objections to marring the original paint finish with a reweld. Have other folks here had a similar problem with the bracket welds breaking loose?

I've also noticed that later models are set-up differently in this area, and also some other interesting areas.
