I think I can picture your problem.You are saying the jamb is too wide??If this is the case you should take it back.What thickness of wall do you have?A 3 1/2" stud with 1/2" drywall on each side will need a 4 9/16" jamb. 3 1/2" stud with 5/8" drywall will take a 4 13/16" jamb.I have run into walls that were built with 2 1/2" studs,if this is the case you will have to rip the jamb to fit.Measure your wall thickness and the jamb that you are trying to install and post back so we can get to the bottom of this.Luck
