I think you need a pair of pliers or a little hammer.

I just posted pictures of my recent install in another thread. My hatch rubs just a little on the left side, just some at the bottom bracket. The other 3 points seem fine. One of the guys said he just did a little attitude adjustment with a rubber mallet. I still have to buy one of those to "fix" mine. You've got to remember the actual clearance there even before the guards are mounted. A little door tweaking, etc., could cause the rubs.

Kind of sad really. Bought our 09 new, but since them both my wife and I became disabled, me in 10/11. So guess what? Not much driving anymore. But the advantage, I guess, is that as of today we have 15.6K miles on the Lib. All maintenance done, 3k oil changes, etc. Just waiting for the next time we take it in and the service guy "recommends" maintenance and then gets the mileage.

Sorry to hear about you and your wife.... Yeah it kinda sucks because these things put a small chip on both sides of my back door needed to get touch up paint. I'm going to return them not worth destroying my jeep for tail light covers. I did put a call into Steelcraft and talk to a repersentive who told me he would talk to the engineering dept and find out whats up. I have yet to hear from them lol. So I'am sending this back and probably wont try it again. It was nice on my Wrangler but i guess these vechiles are not the same. SUCKS.
