    The div with class rt-grid-12 is set to float left.   In IE in order for that floating div to expand each layer inside it must also be marked as float.

    You may be able to get away with removing the float left from that element.

    Tried remove the float: left from .rt-grid-12 with no success.   Also tried adding a float:left to the ui-tabs class

    Didnt seem to help :\

    Try removing "display:inline-block" from the "#vehiclepage-wrapper #vehicle" rule.
