What are the Factory tolerences for gaps?

What are the factory tolerances for gaps between doors and body? I'm looking for specific numbers that the factory must meet on each WK2 before they can release it for retail sale.

Re: What are the Factory tolerences for gaps?

They must have some pretty relaxed tolerances because I remember seeing some brand spankin new WK2's with doors and panels so misaligned that you would think they were already in wrecks. Fortunately for me my 2012 Overland didn't suffer from any gap issues, but I know there are some out there not as fortunate.
