In my jeep cherokee just now I went to test fit the door panels, with just the wooden speaker rings screwed into the door panel(no fiberglass). I put the snaps into their spots on the door panel and they going into their respective holes in the door....they just dont stay. So the bottom of the door where the speakers will be the panel wont sit flush on the door they just kinda hang off. Any help?

Your door panels naturally flex when they clip in, they're not as flat as you would think. If the idea above me doesn't work I'd get some self tapping screws and just screw it down and see what happens.

most gm vehicles use similar clips so the autoparts store should have what your looking for, take a couple off your jeep and go up there and say you want the same ones
