2003 GMC Sierra Tailgate problem

jsut like it says. its the original tailgate. never been hit in the back or anything. recently it will just randomly fall down when im driving. I got the truck and it has a rhino liner which is pretty thick. it seems to latch ok. ive tried adj. and lubing everything. anyone else have this problem? its just annoying cuz i dont want the straps to break and or lose what i got in the back. think i should have down the rhino liner? is it puttin pressure on the bottom of the tailgate? idk any other ways to adj. it?

Have you tried adjusting your striker posts on side a little more toward back of truck, to allow latch to close just a little more? At least to point that tailgate shuts, but not so loose that it rattles.
