This Direct OE Style Window Channel Is What Holds The Tailgate Glass Securely In Place To Help The Rear Tailgate Glass Move Up & Down.
Our Team Grand Wagoneer Tailgate Window Channel Lifter Bar Is Correct For Both The Power Electric & Manual Windows.
This Tailgate Glass Lifter Bar Will Fit All Jeep Grand Wagoneers, Full Size Wagoneers, Full Size Cherokees Including Cherokee Chiefs From 1968-1991.
The Channel On This Tailgate Lifter Bar Commonly Rusts Apart Making The Tailgate Glass Move Up & Down & Loose In The Channel Itself Not Always Closing Correctly.
We Have Added A Coating To Prevent Corrosion To Help Make This Part Last Longer Than The Original One Did.
Sometimes This Causes The Glass To Break When Closing Costing Much More Money.
We Also Recommend You Change At The Same Time The Tailgate Lifter Bar Cushion Part# 5469605.
The Tailgate Lifter Cushion Keeps The Glass Snug Into The Channel & Prevents The Glass From Vibrating Against The Metal Channel.
You Will Also Need 2-Tailgate Retaining Clips Part# J0980363 To Reinstall The Glass Back On This New Lifter Bar As They Are Not Reusable.
Both Those Additional Items Are On This Section Of The Web Site.
Jeep Has Recently Discontinued This Part & We Have Plenty Of Our Channel In Stock.
WE ALSO HAVE THIS PART IN OUR DELUXE TAILGATE RENEWAL SEAL KIT.

I REPLACED THE ENTIRE MECHANICAL GUTS TO MY TAILGATE AND EVERYTHING FIT PERFECT. WEATHERSTRIPPING SNAPPED IN PLACE EASILY AND THE OVERALL QUALITY WAS EQUAL OR BETTER THAN OEM.
I used this to replace my rotted out OEM track. Worked great. I would recommend following instructions online for tips and tricks to make your life a lot easier
This unit appears to be OE.It fits perfectly.Installation should be done with the window glass removed and sitting downside up on a heavily padded surface.The gripper tape should be applied to the bottom of the window and may need to temporarily taped to the glass.A little foaming glass cleaner wil temporarily lube it up.The piece slides on to the gripper tape with a pretty good amount of pressure, a rubber hammer may be necesary but we pushed it on with slow steady pressure and it went right on. With new wipers, guides, and felt channel the window works like new again.
Worked perfectly, nothing bad on the handling wear, just scratches here and there. I shot it with Rustoleum before installing just to try to prevent a rusty death any sooner than it has to happen. I did not buy the rubber strip that goes in this after hearing how hard it made assembling the window. Stacked four pieces of duct tape wrapped around the bottom edge of the window and that was plenty for the channel to "bite" on. Seems to have worked great thus far.
