Door surround rattle

I checked all the normal things but can't figure it out. Top bolts are down tight but the door surround still has some play against the metal frame of the Jeep and it rattles like an SOB driving down the road. Any suggestions? I compared both the divers and passenger surround and I see no difference in the two.

Maybe apply some sticky foam to the inside of the door surround

The rattle is coming from the knobs, hitting on the roll cage itself. I removed all 4 knobs and wrapped them with electrical tape. No more rattle. Be careful not to tighten them down too much though...the metal threaded part will pull itself right out of the plastic knob.
