2011 Lift-Gate on national backorder?

Some jackhole smacked the rear of my jeep and left. The rear bumper, backup sensor, hatch and just about everything on the hatch less the glass is all jacked up.

I couldn't believe that much damage until I looked at the rear bumper. It actually has no crush area to protect the hatch. In fact if you back into anything you will likely crush the bumper cover and hit the hatch before hitting the metal cross bar.

Anyway... insurance is gonna cover it all less the deductible BUT the MF rear lift gate is on national backorder!!!!!!!!!! WTF I can't even get the darn thing fixed because Jeep doesn't have any parts anywhere.

Do any of you have any "ins" to see when this part will be made available?

Re: 2011 Lift-Gate on national backorder?

Do you have the part number?

I was told the same thing when I needed a part for my 2012 Wrangler. Backorder, not available, no ETA. Both my insurance and body shop told me that. I asked them to give me the part number and I found the part in Indiana dealer in 5 minutes after a quick google search and local dealer doing a parts search everywhere.

Re: 2011 Lift-Gate on national backorder?

I don't have the part number handy but I'm sure I can find it. It's basically the entire frame of the rear hatch. Everything else is fine or already sourced. I'll see what I can come up with... THANKS!!!

2011 Overland 5.7L - if part number is 55369603AD (now 55369603AE) then 44 are on backorder nationwide. There are about 35 dealers in the U.S. with the part in stock.

Re: 2011 Lift-Gate on national backorder?

How does one find a dealer with the part? Hell I'll pay you to source me one!

PM me last 6 of VIN so I can 100% verify part. I can then search out and get you a list of dealers with the part. If it all works out for you then sign up for a membership here on JG and we'll call it even .

Re: 2011 Lift-Gate on national backorder?

If you don't mind, could you send me that list as well? My wife just smashed the rear liftgate on our 2011. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. I'm at a loss for words right now. We've had it for 7.5 months, and this will be the second time to the body shop.
