Play on door hinge?

on my 2010 JKU I noticed today that the rear driverside door seems to have alot of play - infact the door was making annoying racket, I got out opened the door and closed it and it seemed OK for a bit then started to rattle again.

When its open I can lift it up and down and it moves about 1/4-1/2 inch. None of the other 3 doors do this. I checked the torx thingys and they are tight.

Anyone have any suggestions? I really don't want to take it and get new hinges under warranty that would suck IMO... but any ideas?

Try loosening the two bolts on the striker on the door jam and moving it in 1/8" inch and see if that makes any difference. I've had so move 3 of mine to get rid of the rattle.
