If you do a search on tail gate rattle you find a bunch of threads on this.
Depends on where the rattle is coming from but some fixes have been -loosening out the rubber stops so they fit tighter against the hatch, using some insulating tape (not right name but is in threads) around the latch bar on the bottom tail gate.

Also, make sure that tire, tools etc. are well secured under the panel - start with the easy stuff.

Some info. here
