The FSM says that you can loosen and move horizontally or vertically the striker plate (U hook) on the driver's door. Trying to improve the "closing" issue.
But the plate is held on by some serious torx type screws. Does anyone know what size they are. Much bigger than anything I have - not even sure if I can find them that big anywhere. Right size would help though.

It's probably the door latch inside the door, not the door adjustment. If the door is closing true with good gaps all around, adjusting that won't help anything.
I've seen problems with the latch assembly in the door itself, the rubber bumper inside gets hard and makes the door harder to close. Also, FD doors just close hard due to the double weather seals, it's airtight and you're pushing against air pressure.
