Re: Disable auto lift gate

Count me in also for the disable feature. Have used the liftgate for over a year and there have been times I wished I could turn it off - I do like the auto feature though.

Re: Disable auto lift gate

This won't exactly "permanently" disable the feature but you can always pop the key fob open and put a piece of cardboard or similar between the contacts for the liftgate button.

To open the liftgate in manual mode, just pull twice on the liftgate handle.

Exactly. Plus I just pull down the lift gate to close, then it auto locks.

How do I disable the rear door?

Do your kids ride around the back of your jeep frequently? My parents had 1 of those old station wagons w/ that sweet grand wagoneer style faux wood trim on the side. Oh the fun we had rolling around back there ... like peanuts bouncing around in a can mixed in w/ a grubby spare tire and all sorts of jacks and tire irons. Those sideways swunging heavy doors were serious.

Accidents happen.

Haha! love it!! we were the same, seat belts were no existent to us back then.

Sadly, the 2014 Overland doesn't allow the rear glass to be opened. Not sure what model the OP has.

I do use it this way also, but still would like the ability to switch it off.
