Default Door Adjustment

I Just put on a door on 2001 Dodge Ram P/U Passenger to Be direct. Hinges Are Fine. I got the door out of a junkyard locally. Old door fit fine. I gutted it and put the guts in junkyard door. which had manual guts my door had electric window and locks. replacement door I believe was a 98 dodge ram. Now door does now shut right. It acts like hinges are bad because it sags and shuts to toght

You can adjust the hinges, and the latch on the door jam. Loosen the bolts and adjust the door higher then tighten them, or lower the latch or a little bit of both.

I worked in a GM factory that makes the Equinox, to make the door fit they have a big bar and just bend it up a bit.
