WK2 Lift Gate Window
 
I am contemplating transferring from my Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon 4x4 to the 2012 GC Overland Summit 4x4. Does the rear lift gate window open manually only or can it be opened electronically? As you can see I am a newbie in researching this model and while the 2012 is not yet available, how does it work on the 2011 model.
:rolleyes:
Thanks,

The window unlatches electronically. Either with a button on the hatch or, in come cases, with a button on the remote.

The liftgate GLASS unlocks & unlatches via the remote or a button on liftgate, but you have to manually open and close it (perhaps it will flip open when you hit unlock if the struts are adjusted right....mine needs a nudge for the struts to lift the glass...perhaps cuz it's new.....my 2005 GC the struts would lift the glass once it was unlatched).

You then have to manually close it......unlike with the powered liftgate itself.

I was wondering about this too.. When u unlock the glass it just unlatches.. Seems like it should pop up.. The only thing to grab to lift it is the wiper on the glass.

There is a small handle/lip under the wiper.

The rear wiper motor is heavy enough so that the window won't pop up when you unlock it.

From what I read in another thread, the earlier keys had a button for the rear glass. Someone had posted that they ordered an extra key, and when they picked it up, it had the extra button. I hear that they removed the button because people were inadvertently pressing the button instead of the button for the entire rear hatch.

In my Summit, when I press the button(on the hatch)for the rear glass, I hear it unlatching, but it does not noticeably pop-up. Also, yes, there is a lip on the rear wiper assembly to pull up the rear glass... PICS... Lip, closed, popped open.

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee had the flipper glass that would flip open when I pressed the button the remote to open the flipper glass. The 2011 just unlatched without actually flipping open....and there is no separate button on the remote for that now either.

My 07-10 build has the fob button to open the glass.
