14-15 Adjust Auto liftgate height??

is it possible on 14-15s with auto liftgate to adjust how much it opens?

Based on how I need to park in my garage, if I open the lift gate I need to hold it from opening all the way otherwise it ends up against my garage door. Im glad I checked it the 1st time instead of opening it from the cabin. I need to stop it short by a couple of inches.

Unfortunately, it isn't.

In my garage, it won't touch the gate if I drive a bit further into the garage so I avoid the 'gate-curve' were the tailgate would hit it. Alternatively, you could also buy some protective material (rubber etc.) that might dampen the impact.

Re: 14-15 Adjust Auto liftgate height??

The first time I pulled into my garage I was cleaning something out of the interior on the new Jeep and the key fob button got pressed in my pocket and the gate opened and hit my garage door. Put a nice little chip in the lift gate! I was so pissed. If I back into my garage I can open the lift gate no problem so that's the way it is from now on.

Re: 14-15 Adjust Auto liftgate height??

I have an 8 foot high garage door so that's not a problem for me.

But yes, that would piss me off if that happened to mine.

I'd likely have the same problem... but I back into my garage.

You can manually control the lift gate by doing the following and then make sure you don't press your FOB again.

"If the electronic liftgate release is pushed while the
power liftgate is opening, the liftgate motor will disengage
to allow manual operation.

Dont rely on that. You can stop it, but when you let go it will attempt to finish its travel....

Re: 14-15 Adjust Auto liftgate height??

Any indication if an adjustable level will show up in the 2016s?

Wishful thinking- just like the rear glass lift on previous models, this is not high priority for the designers and most likely not going to happen.

Who knows but the new gen MY19 is listed as getting a foot activated tailgate so maybe they will make it a 1, 2, 3 position "tap"? I know its kinda funny to talk about this on a vehicle due in 4 yrs
