It's not a big deal though man, You did a good job integrating the two, I wouldn't fuss with it.

I had A to Z on my last tj. Yes they sit lower but it's due to the bottom of the tub. I think you should extend the rockers and just cut the rocker to fit. Like savvy and other corners do.

That's ALOT of work for a small cosmetic issue. We are all hyper critical when were building. When it's all together (and black) no one will care.

I know. But having an extended rocker may be worth it, with a stretch. But I understand. I'm just saying an extended rocker would look and function better..

That would bug the piss out of me, just my opinion. I'd go with LJ-length sliders and blank corners for a very clean end result.

Honestly it's not too bad but I may modify something to make it flush. If I were to do it all over again I would do the same thing but measure the distance for LJ rockers and have Bryce from MoabFab make the adjustment with the final cut and get some LJ sliders. I'm very happy with my corners and was aware they were going to need some adjusting in this area since I ordered them without pre cuts for the sliders.

Very nice looking cut. As far as the gap goes, I say just run it unless it really bugs you that badly. Adding an inch of 3/16" to the bottom of the corner would be a cheap easy fix if it really bugs you. Otherwise, I don't think it will be that glaring once its all painted and on the Jeep.

I agree, just extend the bottom of those corners a bit and nobody would ever know the difference, Or if the slider comes up a bit short get some angle and extend it. Adding some steel isn't a big deal period, just a lil time with the glue gun and it's all better

Mine is bolted to the bottom of the tub inside of the frame rail. Hidden, protected and clean.

Thats a good idea. I'm sure I'll have plenty of room there with the new fuel tank.
