Agreed

Thank a lot guys! It was one of those mods I have been wanting to do for a long time but never wanted to pony up the dough for a new door.

You don't have to chop them for them to sit flush. You can leave them the stock length, but chopping them makes it easier to screw them back on. All you have to do is drill them out farther. Here is how it sits once modified.



And then locked.




So if you like your stock locks and don't want the billet one, then this is a very easy mod to do! Although if you plan to do this you might want to go easy on the soft plastic locks. As you can see I didn't really care about mine and they got chewed up pretty good. I hope this is useful news
Just did this to the driver side only. I've only owned it a week and that lock knob sticking up was really bothering me when I'd have my arm up there. Thanks for the tip.

No problem bud! It is a great mod and I should have done it years ago. My arm/pit has been bruised after wheeling before because of that thing! Not anymore though

I can't wait until you guys see what I have planned for the new wheels! Since they will be an off road only/mostly set I will be getting a little more bold with the paint.

Yeah, it looks great. I think that's one of the best mods for the time/money involved. $20 and an hour or two and it really has an impact on the appearance of the front end.
