I have to be misunderstanding you because my first thought was "Uhh.. stop trying to slide it. It has a hinge at the top." So I assume you're not talking about the tailgate?

Mopar makes zipper cleaner/lubricant (check the owners manual for exact name). Works good-not sure what a generic equivalent would be.

I also heard butter works well, but watch out for stray dogs and cats hanging around your Jeep.

The Mopar stuff works pretty well- definitely makes a difference! It's about $7.95, and you can keep it in the glovebox, unlike butter Mark W.

Back in a '94 YJ! Well, after I sink $$$$ into it...
