Default Rattling Doors

I have a 2001 extend cab and each time i go down a bumpy road or something my doors constantly rattle together. I was wondering if anyone else was having that problem

MAke sure the back doors are shut completely. Sometimes the top of the door won't shutand it will rattle.

Just fixed that same problem today. driver side rear door the bottom latch ( the one attached to the body ) is adjustable. Just loosen the two Torx screws and move it toward the driver seat. I had to move mine as far as it goes and now both doors shut like the car is brand new nice and solid no rattling at all. Going to tighten up the passenger side tomorrow.

I just picked up an 03 s/cab and the top of the driver's side rear door won't latch tight. Is the top latch adjustable?

Not shure if the top is adjustable. I'm assuming the bracket attached to the body will be. Just going to have to pop off the int panel and take a look.
