If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

With a little patience you can do this with out removing the grill although it will take some time so will removing the grill. The grill also can be removed without removing the brushguard. the wiring can be threaded through the holes in the grill & header panel. we did a razor that way. All you have to do is remove the headlight Bezels & trim.

Great news! Thanks for all you have done, pumped about getting this in place. I may PM you for a quick how-to for removing grill without brushguard if you don't mind. Thanks again for all help.

I'm telling ya you can install without removing the grill.

It's not that bad. I've done several.

GI john has the first fully loaded Tailgate window relay system complete with wireless remote. Testing it pretty well complete & some fitment issues are being worked out. The system was designed for the relays to go in the tailgate & we're finding that to be a challenge. The wireless remote rocks. The point is it works can be used with original switches & safety lock.

lets get some preveiws






The remote is not on this one but is an easy add: Like I said this is a first run at the install instructions & will need some work to finalize. the remote will work from 50 feet away.

Tailgate upgrade wiring solution:
Remove all wiring in the tailgate to existing motor & remove the tailgate switch. DO NOT REMOVE LIGHTING WIRES TO THE LICENSE PLATE LIGHT!! Install new switch in tailgate switch mechanism. Mount tailgate relay system temporarily face up using self-taping or machine screws. In the temporary position don’t worry if it sticks out past the tailgate opening. Mount on terminal end. After install is complete you will remove the board & flip it over for protection. It should mount in the same place 180 degrees from the temporary position. Be sure it clears all objects. It should be either on the bottom or close to the access opening in the tailgate. It’s where you have the most space.
Begin running the harness by starting at the battery. Just to retain the wire, mount the ground to the starter relay mounting bolt. Follow the factory harness, Ty strapping it along the way. Run the harness along the firewall & down by the steering column. You will run into the dash pigtail (Comming out of the new harness) with the switch on it. Remove the switch & run the wires through the firewall & install in the old window switches position after you reconnect the wires. Instruction to remove & replace wires are on tag. The white wire should be on top. Mount & ty-strap wires securely into place.
Continue to run the harness to the rear of the vehicle to the slotted hole where the wires run into the tailgate. Determine if you need to enlarge the hole to allow the harness to comfortably fit through the opening if needed & I suspect it will need a 3/8’s in diameter hole should be enough. Ensure you route & secure the wiring away from moving parts & exhaust.
Connect the harness using the tag or this connection chart.
Terminal Wire
#1 Small Yellow
#2 Small red
#3 Small white
#4 No connect
#5 Large red
#6 Large black
Locate the two wires running off the relays. Connect them to motor temporarily. Once you determine operation you can crimp & tape permanently. You can test & reverse wires if it work backwards.
Now mount the circuit breaker & connect the red wire to the starter solenoid by battery. I would disconnect the battery for this procedure.
Re read & re-examine the entire job & ensure the motor wires are still temporarily in the butt splices. Then test.
If everything is OK flip the relay board & replace the tailgate assembly. Then crimp the motor wires. reassemble tailgate & play with your window.


Good luck

Tailgate window bypass relay kit. I'm interested. I don't require a keyed switch in the back or the stupid safety switch. I just want to be able to roll my rear window up and down from the dash without having to get out, pop the hood and touch the long 10ga speaker wire I hacked into the window motor to the battery. LOL

It'll be a while before I'm to the point of needing something for the tailgate window but I'd be interested in a kit when I get there...

I can't believe I missed this!

I have been waiting with baited breath to comment on Serehill's harness.

My original system was dead. I have a 76, so it had the older style motor and regulator.

I ended up going through eBay for a newer style regulator and motor, which wasn't compatible with the 76.
Rich to the rescue!

He built me an outstanding harness that allows me to control my tailgate window from either switch. They perform flawlessly! I also have the option to use a remote control to operate it from about 100' away. It is more convenient than you could imagine!

I would HIGHLY recommend this harness to anyone thinking about trying to repair their old tailgate system. All of the wiring, switches, and relays were replaced with high quality components that should last for the life of the Jeep. I can finally use my tailgate now, and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Thanks again Rich for such an outstanding product!

John

If anyone has any questions about this, please feel free to PM me.

I'm interested in a two headlight kit as well. Do the relays have to be mounted behind the grill or can they go under the hood?

Can't speak for Serehill or all of the harnesses he makes, but I had enough wire in the harness he built me to mount under hood. It was tight but made it.

Great quality product as well!
