I bought a set for the fenders and the doors after reading Stu Olsons' site about them (love his site, ty Stu!)
The fender ones look amazing (I can finally rest my tools there and not worry so much about scratching hem up!) but I'm not sure on the door ones I got, seems like they are cut wrong around the handles corners (1/4" gap in the corners were it look like the radius is different than the handles!) Looks odd and I've already had 4-5 people now ask who cut them out, and I had to say they came that way )?
Anyone have pics of them on a newer TJ so I can compare? The ones on Stu's site look great, and I've been told all the TJ's are the same, but mine don't look like his. Pics would be great before I peel 'em off!
You can clearly see the gap in this pic, but the lower gar is harder to see due to the shadow but its the same
I went off the pics on Stu's site, as they are even used on the companies website. You can see his aren't perfect either on the lower curves, but they are much much better than these I got, and they are both TJ's so I don't know?!
I'm not trimming them with a razor it will mark the paint and possibly cause rust issues if its deep enough, (at least not on the Jeep, and also then the gap would be 1/4"+ all around, plus the 3/8" taper that is already there, so I don't think I'd like that either?) They use to much salt up here
I did through Quadratec where I bought them from. They have just said for the last 9+ yrs they have been this way with no complaints yet. If I wasn't happy to offer a full replacement or refund, which is nice of them, but I was hoping they were the wrong ones or something. I do think this is a great product, but looking at other TJ's like above at Stu's site, these ones I got do look wrong to me and others that have seen them so far.
I can understand the CJ, YJ, being slightly different as they say, but the TJ's used the same handles for years, which they even admit.
I'm still waiting to hear more, so thought I'd see if anyone else had pics to compare of them...
Yeah mine didn't line up perfect either. Oh well, it doesn't look bad, it's just you because it's your jeep

How is the cut on them? They look good from the pic, but a bit far to tell exactly?
Thanks, they look great on the yellow
Looking at your picture, between the glass and door handle looks thicker then how mine is. Also the cut out around the key looks smaller on your as well. Mine dont fit perfectly in the indent in the door either.
And thank you. When I got the Jeep first thing I had to do was tone down the yellow.

A few of the guys at the shop said perhaps they changed the dies as they don't last forever. Quadratec nor Brad has said anything like that though, but did say they are for different models (TJ, YJ, CJ). I don't know if I'll hear more from them other than if I want a refund/exchange, but they said new ones would be the same.
I think this is just how it's going to be. If I don't like 'em, I'll have to take them off
