If the door is closing without binding or rubbing on anything, and the body lines are lined up when you hold it closed, all that's left is to adjust the striker to make the latch work. You do that by loosening the hex nut a little, then you can move the striker up and down and in and out.
Also be aware that Chrysler has come up with a real lot of excellent designs over the past few decades, but this door latch system is definitely not one of them. It's a good idea to leave the interior trim panel off until everything is adjusted and working properly. The rear latch linkage and inside release linkage just snap into little metal clips, and it's not uncommon for them to pop out from an impact or from slamming the door too hard. Slamming it too hard can over-adjust the interior light switch too. There's an easy fix for that if you run into it.
