    I believe they are correct as they sit. Left side, driver, right side passenger. Then the slight outward bow in the hook is to the outside of the vehicle?

    I'm agreeing with PeteL which is the opposite of how you have yours pictured.

    I'm pretty sure mine have never been off the Jeep:

    You need to hook it like he has his for the tailgate to be level:

    That will only work if the ones in your picture are reversed.

    If you hook them the obvious way, that tailgate hangs down:

    Wow, those look familiar, I was thinking about that when I sent them, but could not remember which was which. Good Luck
