Default Can't achieve root w/4.13.51.4 RUU installed

Been scouring the site here and can't seem to figure out where I've gone wrong...
I purchased an Evo 4G LTE and installed the 4.13.51.4 RUU (stock)

Unlocked the bootloader
Installed TWRP 2.6.1.0
Cannot seem to achieve root. Tried installing several different superuser.zips
The only one that will install without failure is SuperSU-v1.93.zip
No failure but also no root afterward

Is there something obvious I'm missing here?

You must use a custom built TWRP recovery found here:

Scroll to post #4 for the download.

Being that you're S-on, you will have to use the fastboot method to install the recovery. Then flash your SuperSU zip again. You do have the SuperSU app installed too, I hope.
