my door isnt flush!!

hi, i posted last nite that i am installing mopar door sill gaurds today and read reviews that the door dont fit tight at the bottom with them, but decided to install them anyway after reading only good comments about them on here. ok got them on and saw that bottom of driver side and edge dont fit flush, so i removed the gaurd and refit it and still the same problem. the passenger side is fine. Now im wondering if its always been like that or if its the new gaurd. i just dont want mud water or cold air getting in.Im tempted to pull it off and see if the door is flush with out it but then it probally wont come off now lol.

i went out and pulled the gaurd off and the door still wasnt flush, so its not the gaurd.. i guess thats just how the door sits in that side and its never leaked so thats good to know...

Sometimes you will have to adjust the stock door HINGE to position the door against the side/seals, of the door frame-

I've done that on my '08 JKU, because of a whistle noise at the top of the door-

Good luck

I don't see how the Mopar sill guards can interfere with the door... ours don't even come close to the door.....

You know I have noticed on my passenger door sometimes I really have to slam (or firmly shut) it to get it shut flush...I might have the dealer check it out on the first oil change. I'm sure its all fully adjustable

What you just described could be 2 different issues. The first issue could be the topic at hand,,, The door is not aligned via the hinges properly.

Or it is air stuck in the cabin , causing the door not to close properly, kind of like a air tight closet door, if air is left inside with no way out , it will cause pressure inside the cabin. Even though there is a vent outside the rear door where the spare tire is mounted, sometimes it is not enough for the air to get out in time.

Try this quick trick. #1 open all the doors, #2. then close the door in question that you might need alignment. If it closes properly, then it is an air intrapment issue. Try it, it will keep you from going crazy. I had the same issue, it was not a door alignment , it was air trapped inside the cabin , pushing back on the door , stopping it from closing all the way, therefore using more force than usual to close it. Different angles , temperatures , conditions will have different effects.


Hope this helps out a little
