Flipper Glass

Just though I would throw out there that I couldn't be happier with it. At first, I never thought I would use it, but I don't think I go a week without using it. My boy has a 14 and he is actually really bothered by the fact that his doesn't come with it. I wonder what the motivation was to remove that simple yet totally worthwhile feature.

Honestly I had a 2011 Overland and didn't even realized how to open it until I sold it. I will be picking up a 2014 and will probably never think about the glass. I guess it depends on the individual

Re: Flipper Glass

Yea, I hear that. TBH, my last rig (4th generation 4runner) had auto up/down rear glass which was absolutely awesome. You could either use the key on the rear door to lower/raise it to your desired height, or use the button on the cluster to do the same thing. Now that was ideal, but I still like the feature on our rig.

Sure, i could just open the whole hatch, but since its there I use it.

I think that was the problem, as soon as I brought my 2011. They removed the bottom to remotely unlock the flipper glass and the button was hiding under the panel.

I guess the old theory of out of site out of mind played out.

Re: Flipper Glass

I use mine all the time also, especially when travelling, we are able to get items out of the hatch and not worry about stuff falling out when loaded up.

Would like to trade on a '15 so I am hoping they bring back the flipper glass and add more HP to the engine and install 3:73 gears in the diffs. (Just in case Chrysler is reading this)

Yea. When i do Costco runs especially. No bags and just a trunk full of food begging to fall out when I lift the hatch.

As for my hp, who wouldn't want more?

Re: Flipper Glass

I use it. I also use the hard drive (every day) and the CD player. So happy I have a 2012 and a bonus is the frost beige interior has dark frost beige carpet.

Re: Flipper Glass

Honestly, I don't miss the 2011 at all from the Buggy 730N system to the sluggish transmission. I hope they made the 2012 a lot better. I don't think the flipper will be coming back, maybe putting the button out of site out of mind, was the first step in completely removing it.

Interesting point and possibly a way to wean people off of it.

PS, i have a 13 and no sluggish transmission

Re: Flipper Glass

I never thought of it and that I would use it more than opening the trunk on my 2012. I had to use it the other day when I bought a box which was slightly larger to fit in the boot, but after opening the flipper glass driving it opened, I thought I couldnt live without it.....

Ever so flimsy, I'm glad I have it than not.
