IF there was an advantage and that's a bit of a stretch, it would be overcome fairly rapidly by poor material usage on the laser table, installation difficulty, higher material costs if you scrap one and we all do on the manufacturing side, higher shipping costs, and the real big one, I have yet to see two TJ's with the same relationship between the top of the tub and the top of the door sill.
Plus, if you damage a rocker, now you get to replace both.
As time goes by and the TJ gets older and older, you will see more of this. Folks do stuff just to be different and not because it's a good idea.
As far as I'm concerned, no set of corners should ever be cut around the tailgate hinges, just simply no need for something that NEVER fits correctly.
