Inner Fender / Wheel Well Question

T always struck me as odd that the passenger side inner fender had a large cut-out in it extending from the shock top opening, but I just ignored it and assumed there was a reason they put it there.

While looking at the truck today I started pondering it and looked more closely. The more I examine it, the more I am suspicious that this was a modification made by the previous owner. Can anyone let me know if theirs looks similar?

I don't have the engine in right now to see what someone would have used it to access, but I have a feeling that it is not something land rover designed into it.

The last pic is of my driver side. As you can see, there is only a hole for the shock too. On the passenger side it appears somebody cut downward from the hole and took out an entire section of metal.
