Is there any way to adjust the latch for the back hatch, mines ratteling and starting to drive me crazy. I tried adding extra padding between the body and the door to make the latch tighter, but that only worked for a couple days.

-thanx

oh if it matters i do still have my spare mounted in the stock location, and it is stock size tire.

All you need to do is use a torx to loosen the striker pin and move it back a bit. Or make sure you're closing the tailgate hard enough first. When my TJ was still new, I thought the tailgate was too loose since it was rattling but it turned out I just wasn't closing the tailgate hard enough.

Agree to that. Whenever i close mine i have to keep my hand on the door otherwise it never closes unless i swing it like a stolen bag of money lol. I heard dont use the tire as a holder since you will bend the holder or something.
