door issue

Hello everyone, this is my first post. I reciently purchased a 98 TJ and i love it. Hard top, great tires (31 BFG M/T) and great wheels. I installed a bikini top and love riding around without doors. Problem is when I put the doors back on they rattle really bad. Any advice on how to tighten them up? There's alot of play in the door latch and that's where the rattling is coming from.

Loosen the strike bolt in the door jam and slide it twards the seat a bit then tighten it up. Takes a big torque bit on my '02. Might take a couple trys to get it where you want it so the door closes tight but you don't have to slam hard. Also check your weather stripping on the door. If it's missing, that will cause rattles as well.
