my 04 rubicon has/had that same problem. Chrysler/Jeep is aware of it and they have a fix... they came out with a new rear glass hatch that has a lower lip that the tailgate door catches better.
Or you can do what I did... bought some heavyduty velcro from wal-mart and stuck a 12" strip of the "hook" side of the velco strip along the upper edge of the tailgate door. that strip of velcro helps catch that hatch weather stripping really securely so it doesn't pop open anylonger.
I previously tried lowering the glass on the hinges but there wasn't really enough adjustment... so I tried fiddling with the hinges some more and I overtightened a hing bolt on the glass hatch and it shattered. lol... after replacing the glass hatch I went the velcro route... then a few months later I heard about the rear hatch that chrysler now uses for the TSB on this issue
