I installed my rubi rails today and I had a question. One Rail fit in nice and snug and the other didn't quite as well, leaving a small gap. Here are pics to show you what I mean..

The side that fit well:


The side that had a gap:


It seemed like the angle of the mounts that bolt onto the frame were a little off causing there to be a gap. Before bolting down, I could push on the rail to make it sit flush, but this caused there to be about 3/4 inches between the mount and frame. Has anyone run into this?

Let me know if I am being nit picky with it, I just want to make sure its not something on my end.

Here's another shot of the side with the gap from a little further away.

Mine is the same as well, maybe once you smack a rock real good, it will raise it up more!

The ones that came on my 2013 Rubicon seem tight and match side to side. Maybe there is a factoiry adjustment that involves a rock or two???

I ran into the same situation when I added my RR's. One side had more of a gap than the other. I could see that by bending the 3 angle arm bars it would move the RR closer to the rocker panel, but rather than trying to bend all three just right, I just added some thick washers between the angle arms and the underside of the Jeep. I tightened all the pinch seam bolts first.
