FYI....Trimmed Pinch Seam is already done at the Factory.... That is right. The newer 2013's have trimmed pinch seams from Jeep.

Interesting, I saw a '13 AEV w/trimmed seams, I never gave a thought to check the stocks ones(at the dealer).

Good job Chrysler.

My '13 still needed the trim.

I always am impressed when a manufacturer pays attention to the consumers and what they're changing, too bad I bought an early 13....

I wonder if they also shortened the Rubi sliders? The sliders end at the pinch seam and usually need to be trimmed back also. Trimming mine is on my to-do list.

I wonder if they have plans to build a wrangler with 35's from the factory. That's the only reason I can see them putting in the effort to change this.

We just picked up our 13, 2 days ago. It was put together about 3 weeks ago at Jeep. NO...... the Rubi rails are NOT cut shorter......still full length and past the factory cut pinch seams........No biggie, nothing a saw cannot fix.
