ehhhfff, I was watching and waiting for some longer term results and since I live in a rainy, snowy, and salted roads kind of place, it looks like I just live with the manual operation. I was really wanting this to be a success, but it looks like I have to pass on this product, damn.

I hate hate hate accessories that tap into main electrical system, which is what this autoease product does. Iím waiting for one that has its own power supply hookup, maybe one I can hook to a spod and that would be hooked to an aux battery.

I unplugged my aftermarket front camera for this reason. Yes, the radio is fused but I still donít like that. Iím working on a way to rewire and hook power supply to a dual battery set up now. None of my accessories will ever go to main power supply, never.

OK looks good and it should have been a factory option, but the motors sound like they are straining a bit.

Also I wonder if the foot actuator will open the hatch for you on the trail. Time for a yard sale.

To answer your question, at my request, they sent me extra liftgate sections of the wiring harness that I had planned to use. But before I went through all that I plugged in the new controller to see if it was going to make the liftgate work. It didn't. So, from there I pursued a refund, which took several months, but I did receive one. The difficulty came from Autoease being a PayPal vendor. I didn't realize this when I made the purchase. As a result, I was dealing with two credit card companies instead of one, making a refund complicated. When Autoease and my credit card company couldn't make the refund work I submitted a dispute. My initial dispute was dropped because of PayPal being in the middle. In the end, it was only because I had an email from Autoease stating that they would give me a refund that the my credit card company reopened the dispute and pursued it to the end. Consequently, I can't endorse the product. I spent the bulk of three weeks on this installation and troubleshooting for weeks beyond that, with no payoff in the end. They have issues to resolve and I have a box of parts.

I'll never have a power lift gate ever again. Too many complications in the past. I love the 4Runner for it's simplicity in so many areas. Keeping it that way.

I hear ya. I have a sunroof and it's already blown out once. Plus always cleaning out the tracks from the dirt, old glass pieces, etc.
