Wondering about my rear hatch/lift gate... it seems to be "off". See photos. The gap is extremely narrow on the driver side and a bit wider on the passenger side. I bought this Treg about 6 months ago. Sometimes when closing, it stops before latching.

Makes me wonder if it was in an accident (no record of it) or if this is just a hatch/gate alignment issue?

Thoughts?

When closed does each side of the tailgate sit even with the body or is one higher/lower than the other?
Maybe also open it up and take a look at the hinges/hatch and body where they mount for and obvious damage to the metal.

That definitely isn't right

Thanks for the comments. It is a concern. I'll do a bit more recon on it and post back later. Luckily, other than a minor inconvenience of the hatch only closing automatically some of the time... it hasn't cause me any issues.

My concern would be what exactly is throwing off that alignment - unseen damage, simple misalignment etc.
