Question '14 Set Max Height on Power Liftgate?

Just picked up a '14 Overland this weekend and was wondering if there was a way to set/teach the maximum height of the power liftgate open action? It hits my garage door. Looked through the manual and couldn't find anything about doing this. I do know that I can double-grab the handle for manual mode.

Re: '14 Set Max Height on Power Liftgate?

Had the same problem with my '14 Grand Cherokee. The lift gate hit the bottom edge of the raised door. Fortunately, I was able to solve it by adjusting the garage door opener to pull the door about 8 inches more open (farther into the garage).

i also adjusted my garage door opener travel but it still made contact depending on our parking accuracy. i sliced a pool noodle lengthwise and slid it onto the lip that's on the back of the garage door. it's a black noodle, doesn't look bad on the door and can't be seen from outside the garage when the door is closed.

I piece of black foam pipe insulation cover from Home Depot, Lowe's or Menard's would work well too in case you can't find a pool noodle in the color black.

Re: '14 Set Max Height on Power Liftgate?

That insulation is a great idea!

Initially, I also thought that there would be a way to adjust the height but after reading through the section of the manual covering the opener for a couple of times, I figured out there isn't. On the other hand, setting the liftgate any lower would probably increase the risk of hitting my head on it...

Most of the time, I don't have that contact-issue but when I don't drive into the garage far enough, there is a slight contact. Not sure it would cause any damage but the insulation should work just fine.

Re: '14 Set Max Height on Power Liftgate?

You can buy a parking mat which is a pieces of rubber with two humps on it spaced about 8 inches apart. You drive over the first hump and your wheel stops between the two. This way your car will always be in the same spot in your garage. I paid about $15. for the last one I purchased at Walmart online.

I tried that in the past but in my case - unfortunately - the map didn't stay in place...

I have used them for about 15 years , never a problem. Place a piece of tape on the floor both in front and behind the mat. This way you can make sure it is in the proper place. If not, just slide it to where it belongs.
