is there a way to tighten the tailgate (adjust the latch or anything)? my tailgate has like 1/8-1/4" play in it so when i hit a good or short bump the tailgate moves a bit and you can hear it bouncing off the latch and making some noise

Wrap a little bit of electrical tape around the latch pin and it'll keep it from rattling.

Like Ken said, there should be some minor adjustments.

What I did was bought some weatherstripping and ran it around the sides and top of tailgate. This created a nice seal and really tightened up the gate/latch from moving around.
