Mine did the same thing except it shifted towards the drivers side. When you closed the gate, it would walk towards the drivers side and rub the paint off. I'd like to know if I missed something too or did something wrong, but for now I just put a washer behind the new drivers side hinge on each bolt to shim the hinge out and it seems to work for now......Also, dont forget about the $0.50 "hose clamp" mod for the passenger side hinge to prevent some
from lifting your gate off and stealing it.
