BJ's Off-Road is proud to announce our Tailgate Window Switch Conversion! We had a bracket built to adapt a military grade switch to your factory tailgate rocker switch bracket! This switch is very high quality and should outlast the stock switch! Our switch also retains all interior switch functions! Note that this switch replaces the one inside the tailgate (not the dash).

for my 1977 Wagoneer, the orange wire in the installation instructions is actually red with white trace. Also, the brown and tan wires need to be reversed from what is it in the instructions to make sure dash switch works correctly, which it did after I installed this kit. Also, you will need to really crimp the connectors very hard, and in order to get the two red with white trace power wires and the black jumper wire in the same connector, you will need to cut off about 20% of the stands so that they all fit in the crimp connector. since you are taking all of the parts off, it is a good time to lube the gears and tracks. I found it a good idea to use a 2" hole saw over make a hole near the bottom of the inner tailgate to allow easy access to the spring clips that retain the steel part of the glass frame to each of the regulator arms. Also, I was not able to install the replacement spring clips, as the spring steel is too stiff, but you can get replacements that are as thin as the originals at any Ace or True Value.
Excellent instructions. Was able to sort out all the cut wires in my butchered tailgate using your instructions....great job
I bought this because my key switch never worked and knew when I rebuilt the tailgate I’d need to install it. Super easy install, instructions are clear.
After failure of the original switch I discovered this upgrade solution. Excellent!! Comes with detailed step-by-step description to install. However quite a lot of work to get to the switch, but absolutely worth it.
