I am wanting to swap the liftgate on my 94ZJ for one with the flipper glass from a 96-98. I was told by one local Jeep dealership parts guy that it will bolt right on using my old hinges and the electrical plugs are different that run the wiper and 3rd brake light. To me this sounds like a rather easy dilemna to overcome just wanted to see if any others out there have made this swap and could post any comments please.

Hello Jeepguy! Welcome!
I haven't done this, but I think it would work great! Besides the wiring, it should bolt right up. Post some pics of the gate when you're finished the swap! Cool

I was going to do that with mine except I was going to use the lift gate for my back window after I cut the Jeep ... but I decided to go with a sliding glass instead.. It will bolt up and fit but as was said you may have some wiring to rework..

Post the pics..



Oh and welcome...
