  8. Technical Write Ups
    If anyone has had issues with their tailgate windows, then you know how the pain of troubleshooting. Yes, you can always remove the window, but that's a pain in itself. Also, the tailgate is best worked on in the open position, but with the window extended. Honestly, for me, I knew what was...

As far as I know, the motor is still functioning but when I opened up the tailgate, the motor somehow came unplugged the last time I rolled it down.
