It is sloped on both ends. The instructions say the notch goes to the front.

Must just be an illusion from slightly different pic angles and lighting

You got me checking but there is a angle in both front and back and the cut outs match the seam lines and lined up with the wholes on the TH. The instructions the has the front to the left and top the passenger side see picture. The instuctions are a bit vague, part of the reason for the post to help others with there install.

They are a piece of cake to line up and make sure, the smaller square cutout goes over the vertical body filler seam.

I am getting alot of dirt mud and dust up under the doors from the gap between the body and the rail. The Chief financial officer (My Wife) said that the plate covers from RRO is $120.71 with shipping, and not within the budget. I had to come up with an alternative. So I found some clear vinyl corner protectors from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and some anti skid tape also from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I have some back spray paint and spray on automotive adhesive Cut the vinyl to length aprox 1 1/2 strips per side, then spray painted them black, then let them dry then spraying the vertical side with adhesive attached them to the rock rails. then with the anti skid tape I secured them to the top of the rails.
