We installed 5/8". I just wanted to know why inspectors here require 5/8" if code says 1/2", that's all. I apologize, if I confused anyone....

I always ordered my pre-hung doors with whatever jamb width I needed.

Yes, thats the way to do it. People seem to be so used to buying what some box store has on the shelf instead of whats needed.

Standard jambs on a prehung door for a 2x6 wall are easy to run through a table saw if you want to save some money over custom sizes of jambs. If your careful you can run a handheld circular saw on both legs and the header and not even have to take the prehung unit apart.

So I used Johnson soft closing hardware, result exceeded my expectation. The soft close feature works really well. Thank you, Paul.
