Ill give it a try i didn't notice it till I held a level up to it because it wasnt closing all the way. But I would like to get it fixed before my vinyls get put on.

If it is twisted out at the top, put a block of wood between the tub and the rear lower part of the door (down by the rocker panel). Push in at the top. Start with a little pressure and add more muscle as necessary. The doors aren't too strong so go little by little.
If it is twisted out at the bottom put the block of wood against the side of the sport bar and the rear top of the door. Apply pressure as in above instruction. For additional leverage pull Jeep close to a wall and push with your legs. Always remember to push on the part of the door that attaches to the door frame, not on the sheet metal in the center of the door. Good Luck, L.M.

Thx for the advice guys I tried fixing it. It shuts alot better now but still not all the way. I think it was wrecked at one point and the tub is bent/warped.

After untwisting the door you may have to readjust the hinges and door striker to get it to close perfectly.
