rear glass lift gate on 2014 GC

New to the forum and looking at a 2014 GC. does anyone know if the rear glass lift gate on the 2014 opens independently of the entire rear gate? the 2013 does and want to know if there is a change for 2014

Thanks

Re: rear glass lift gateon 2014 gc

It's funny, when I had my 2000 WJ Limited back in 2000, I hardly ever used the flipper glass. Since I got my 2012 Overland, I use it every time I use the vehicle. But I now have a 2014 Summit on order, so I guess I'll have to get used to opening the liftgate every time. Oh well, that and not having full LED taillights are about the only things I don't like about the 2012's. But the updates certainly outweigh those 2 good points.

Re: rear glass lift gateon 2014 gc

The power liftgate only takes about 5 minutes to open or close, so I use the flipper glass a lot more than I expected to.

Flipper glass is important to me. I guess it will not be so important to me if I stick with JGC in the future!
