TJ Full Metal Door Alignment?

So my TJ has full metal doors. They need to be closed relatively hard to close all the way. When closed they line up great with the body, but are very loose. Meaning they rattle like crazy when driving. They can move a good 1/2" to 1" when latched which is causing the rattle. Is this normal? Or is there a way to adjust it? I have tried to move the striker plate on the door jam, but that hasn't helped. Is there something I can do with the latch in the door to make it fit a little better?

Check your door latch itself and make sure you are on the second catch and not on the safety catch. I had the same problem when I got the jeep and I couldn't get it close all the way even with the stiker all the way in. It ended up being my latch mechanism was not latching on the second latch. I was able to take it apart and get it working for a bit until the new latch came in. Also, check to make sure your seals aren't bad.
