Welcome to the forum! Can you post a picture showing the problem you are having? You got the correct year doors, right?

Yikes. So what's happening exactly? They won't go into hinges?

the doors go in bout a half inch. and the hinges are bout 1/2 mm away from the body. if i open or shift the doors at all it will most likely scrape paint off

It sounds like the pins, or mounts are not lined up. I would put a layer of masking tape then a layer of duct tape to protect the paint. Then loosen the door mounts about 1 turn, so that you can wiggle them as you slide the door on. It would not hurt to put a little oil on the pins and the inside of the mount to help.


Good luck

What brand of trail doors? All that I've ever seen, you didn't have to adjust the stock hinges for....if the hard doors fit, the trail doors should too. How about some pics of the doors and the hinges together.

As stated above carefully grind down the offending metal area and tape the body to protect or you could send the doors back and try a different brand. I would call body armor and see what they say. Good luck!

After dealing with Body Armor customer service for my rear bumper, you won't get anywhere with them. I had the bumper for a week and after washing it in the driveway, it started rusting. There was rusty water coming out from inside where the signal light indentations are. They told me to drill weep holes in it. Their stuff looks cool but it's made in China and it shows.

Damn that's exactly what happened to me and used a grinder to fix it. Only thing I did different is I used just a regular satin black rattle can for touch up.
