Rear tail light rock gaurds

So I recently purchased some tail light rock guards from Morris 4x4 and they came rusted and seemed like they didn't fit snug with my 2002 jeep sahara. Anyone had this problem before? I returned them and got some smittybuilt ones from another sight and they are a little better but still seem like they are too bent and leave a small gap behind them. I had trouble with the screw and ended up just putting some nuts on by reaching up under the flap. Anyone else dealing with this that has some advice?
Thanks,
Wil

If there is a gap I would take them off and put some RTV or black silicone caulk behind them to keep out water And rust. I do that to damn near everything though. I don't have guards.

For some reason most taillight guard kits supply screws that aren't big enough.

If the contact between the taillight housing and the tub isn't strong enough, electrical 'earth' issues happen with weird effects for the taillights.

I got some stainless bolts and put nuts on by reaching up under the flap too.
