I have an exterior French door with a 2x6 jam. i would like to install this into a 2x4 frame. Has anybody done this without making any changes to the jam?

Sure you can do it and the door will work if you don’t mind no trim on one side of the door. :wink:

Was the door free?

You have some work ahead of you modifying that jamb.

Could you rip the frame down to 4 1/2"? Is there a metal threshold? You should be able to rip the inside and your trim inside would cover almost all of your cut.
