    Default Adjusting tailgate

    My tailgate sticks out at each side from the body about 1/4" I took the latch off thinking it would have some adjustment to it, but I don't see any way of adjusting the latch. There doesn't seem any way to move the latches. What am I missing?

    Surely someone else has had this problem.

    Here's the photo. Both sides stick out like this. It will push in even, like it just needs the striker to be adjusted inward, but I don't see any adjustment.
