Mines an 05 without power locks, I have to use the key on the door too but somehow that doesn't bother me. The tailgate is annoying if getting a tool out etc. I know apples and oranges comparisonWait, do you mean that you have to use the physical key to unlock your rear tall gate? Or that you just have to use the unlock button?
Mine (2014 JK) unlocks with the electronic central locking.
