Tailgate/Trunk Door Rattle Help?

Hey guys, so Its been happening for a while but i just fixed the issue by wrapping the door hinge with duct tape lol. Problem with that is that the door doesn't really shut all the way, it just stops the rattling. So im not sure if this is common or not but i wouldn't be surprised if it is. So my questions is how can I fix it so that everything works right? Thanks to anyone who can help me out

The striker is adjustable on the tub. (part the latch grabs)
Take a flash light and look at the latch as it touches the striker. It should be centered in the latch opening, if not it can be adjusted by loosening the bolts and moving it.
Also it can be moved back and forth to pull the gate in tighter if need be.
