Thought. I would attach the photo of tsb being applied at the dealer as I set here bored shitless. Flrst time to get this accomplished. Time consuming pita. If you read the tsb, after 2nd attempt to repair. They must replace the lift gate. Can’t even make a rear window defroster that works. They have only been around foreve🤔

I just purchased a '20 JLU for the SO. Not sure the exact reason (but probably same as this TSB) the Carfax listed the rear lift glass as being replaced.

just finished at the dealer with the repair. can't touch it for 48 hrs. WTF I have never used the rear defroster on my jeep. Guess it is more designed to self destruct in 2 years or less. Fantastic.

They tried to repair mine three times, with that kit. The longest the fix held was.48 hrs. One time it didn't make it out of the parking lot.
I then told them it was time to replace the glass, and they did. It's been fine since September 2021.

I remember having to solder the wire on my JK glass on mu own. It seems like the repair kits are hit or miss. Good Luck

This is FUNNY! "Buy a frost fighter 2000, and glue it back on. We will reimburse you for half the cost". LOL!!!!

Edit: I checked out the website, and could totally imagine Billy Mays hocking this.
