Default Installed RBP ner bars...not totally happy

So after waiting on them almost a month I finally got to install these bad boys yesterday. I do love the look of the bars but Im a little upset that the ends of the bars are pushing up on my flares. They dont even sit flush against the body because the flares are in the way. Im still trying to figure out why Im the only one on here that seems to have had this problem. Talked to a shop today and its either drop the bars a little (which defeats the purpose of the look I was going for) or cut the ends of the bars shorter. Trying to post some pics so let me know what you think.

I have been disappointed in the quality and fitment of some of the RBP stuff I've picked up over the years. It's wildly overpriced and the quality is pathetic, especially for what they expect you to pay.

I think thats what Im most unhappy with. They cost way too much money to not fit right. They should have an option for a slightly shorter bar for trucks with flares. The rep from autoanything contacted them and they wont take returns on something thats been installed. How on earth would I know theres was a problem until after I installed it? Wont waste my time and money with them again.

Nice looking truck and I like the look of those nerf bars/steps.

HOWEVER...that's total BS that the company won't stand behind their product!
