Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I had the same problem with mine for the top latch just took larger washer and was able to fix where it pushed through there... As for the bottom two bolts just cut a piece of metal rectangular in shape drill two holes and replace.... again i had done this with both driver and passenger door and now it works great.

I had the same thing happen to my 95 cherokee orvis edition. I took it to my local Chrysler dealership and they fixed it for I believe around 6-700 bucks! I would have done it myself however did not need the hassle!! It's simply caused by weekening of the metal. This is what the body shop fella told me. He said he's fixed about 2-3 dozen... Sorry I couldn't be of more help however thought you should know it's common with our jeeps!

If you need to get a door Id suggest trying a local wrecking yard. If you can try to get the whole hinge assembly and latch as it sounds like there is a possibility that the hinge on your current door is worn out or the latch mechanism is worn. If you are lucky you may even get one that is the same color as your current vehilce color.
I would say that you can most likely weld the torn metal around the latch. Be sure to protect or remove all wireing, upolstery and any thing else that may melt, burn or catch fire due to high tempatures. I would suggest TIG welding if you know someone or a shop that can do it but you are more likely to find a MIG welder which should do a decent job as well.
