Same here. It's 1 am. I had to give up with the alignment. Hopefully a fresh set of eyes on the morning and a helping hand will do the trick. When you guys are trying to do the alignment are you keeping the inside hinge bolts (in the body) tight or loose? I'm trying everything to get some wiggle room@Chrisdupe i attempted to install mine tonight and I am having similar issues. I just cannot get it aligned properly. And this is with a stock 33 (I’m installing it now in preparation of my 37s that are on order).
I followed the directions and I noticed that as soon as I unbolted the factory hinges, the tailgate dropped. It wasnt much, but Enough to put some creases in the tape. So as I was installing the Teraflex system, I lifted the tailgate back up enough to where my guidelines were even again. As soon as I put the spare on, cut the tape and opened the tailgate, it dropped a ton. And no matter what I do, I can’t get it to go up high enough to compensate for the drop. I had to call it quits tonight bc I was losing my patience, but I got it to where it’s only dropping about 1/4”. I would be ok with that if it was a 37s, but with the stock wheel I shouldn’t be having this issue. I didn’t have wood shims, so that is going to be what I try tomorrow. Hopefully that works. But really, I think this kit needs shims for where the lower hinge mounts to the tub. Just like most of the other kits.
