08 tailgate install question

I just put an 08 tailgate on my truck. Got it on without a problem. The only thing is that the passenger side sticks out past the bed about a half inch or so...

The drivers side is fine...

Here's the finished product.

My question is, is there an adjustment to pull the tailgate in closer on the side that sticks out? Any help is appreciated.

I could possibly have a couple for sale here in the next day or two. I'll let everyone know... (And to remove all doubt right now, no they're not stolen).
