I think you are right, right one is lower than left
I bet he installed left first and than realized there is a tailgate bracket on the way on the right side.

They always look that way... it's an optical illusion. There was a big discussion about this when someone here put the ORO LEDs on his TJ. It's because of the hinges on one side, & the license plate (or in that case fuel cap) on the other side.

I don't think it's a big deal. They look sweet anyway

Changed the front & rear diff fluids yesterday, and I put on a set of Rockcrusher covers while I was there Also did the oil & rotated the tires.

Now, the front cover hits the trackbar under compression

I guess I'll need to lift her sooner than later

Hey gang this seems like a great place!
Anyway I have an 04 X and I am waiting for the delivery of my RE 5.5 LA kit---so I installed my Warn Tire Carrier on Sunday and my new KC lights on my windshield brackets yesterday.
I am dying in anticipation for my new lift. I have my 37" MTR's on order and just picked up my wheels---I stare at them in my garage every evening-
I have done a ton of work researching the lift and with the lift and 2 inch spacers I am going to have high ride-----I found a guy who works for the local jeep dealership who installs lifts on the side----he has done some great work and I cant wait for mine to become huge.
Well that was it for yesterday--- By the way I found the Warn Tire carrier to be VERY heavy! And it was more work than I thought---
Oh an after installing the KC lights last night-----they do not work! I have to run through and check my grounds and all my connections-----what a pain!
