A few folks mentioned that when towing, the flipper gives them better access. In that case the slightly larger rear glass only provides a better view of what you are towing.
With little tweaks like removing the flipper, Jeep is moved more and more out out the "Sport", "Utility" category into the mall crawler crossover group.
