Double DIN adapter '13 JKUS

I swapped out my wife's 730N for a Kenwood double DIN and got the Metra adapter that pretty much everyone uses. This is the kit

The adapter has a lip on each side that forces the HU to mount behind it and this is causing the HU to be too far into the dash. So far in fact that the volume knob is 1/2 covered by the curve of the adapter plate.

Are there other brands of adapters that you guys would recommend? I can always grind/cut the lip off the Metra but I'd prefer not to.

They all seem to be like that. I have installed a Pioneer with the Metra adapter and have that issue. I also have the xscorpion brackets and it appears that they are easier to mod to move the radio up closer to the dash opening by sanding down the side of the adapter that is closest to the radio. Once I get my XM box and open the dash again I will try to get that other adapter installed.
