Jeepfreak86's 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude Journal

Hey guys. Been a lurker and sparse poster around here, but I am finally getting around to making a journal of my Jeep. I have always been a more performance oriented gearhead, as my previous cars were very different to the Jeep. Got a bit tired of the lowered, loud cars and decided to get something with a bit more comfort and extra space since my wife and I were expecting. Picked up a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude in January of 2015 as I found the Jeep to be a great deal and always have loved the looks of WK2. I have done a few small cosmetic mods to clean it up a bit to make it my own. I don't plan on doing to much to this since it is primarily the family hauler. Enjoy!

Current Mods
- 20% Tint on Front Windows
- H11 Nokya 2500k (yellow) Fog Bulbs
- H11 Osram Night Breaker Plus Low Beams
- Black Grille Insert
- Gloss Black Jeep Exhaust Tips
- Gloss Black Window Trim
- Gloss Black Rear Tail Light Bezels
- All Weather Mats

Day I picked her up



Black Grill Inserts and Bulbs Installed (headlights not on and super dirty)



Gloss Black Trim





Gloss Black Tail Bezels and Exhaust Tips






Future Plans:

- Larger/Wider wheels. Looking at some Fondmetal STC10 22x11 in black.

- SRT Headlight Conversion

- Lowered on Bilstein struts and Road Magnet Springs

- Light tint on tails, 3rd brake light, and bumper reflectors.

Wow that looks really good, is that just vinyl on the window trim? What did it run you to do? Wish Jeep didn't stop making those black exhaust tips, I really like them.

Thanks. Yep it's 1080 3M gloss black vinyl that I wrapped the window trim and tail light bezels with. Cost about 40 bucks for the material and a few hours work.

Vinyl seems like one of those things that you really have to know what you are doing with it. I'm not sure I would know how to do that so I guess I'm going to start looking around for a shop to do it for me. I used that exact same kind of 3M vinyl on my last vehicle and it is great, lasts a long time, used it for a truck hood.

I agree. I've been working with tint and vinyl for years so I have experience under my belt. If you have never worked with it before, it can get frustrating quickly. If you don't feel comfortable with it, take it to someone who knows what they are doing.

Re: Jeepfreak86's 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude Journal

Love the jeep ! I need to get my jeep the black gloss window trim and tail light bezels wrapped.

Did you take the tail lights apart to get that piece separated or just wrap it on the tail light as one piece and cut around it?

I thought about painting it but idk how well that will work out (and I want to tint the tail light pretty dark but I know Jersey cops are super annoying about it!

Thanks bud. I did everything on the car and made necessary cuts and trimmed everything out. Feel free to hit me up if you would like to get yours done by me.

Painting is always an option, but usually a more time consuming process as the prep work and getting it just right would take some time. NJ cop's can be a hassle at times, but I have never had an issues with the Jeep. Previous cars, stopped often haha. Not this one. I too am planning to tint the tails, but very lightly. I don't like them when they are too dark. I prefer them when the red is more of a cherry red than black.

That would be amazing! Where in NJ are you located near? I'm near central jersey ... Because Ive never worked with vinyl and a shop near by said it would be few hundred and can't guarantee the work... (little shady)

As for cops.. I had a TLS which got stopped almost weekly for tints or something stupid... but yeah I wont do it BLACK tint but slightly dimmer than it is now to give it a different look and hopefully not get pulled over for it..

Re: Jeepfreak86's 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude Journal

Love the red man! Its different. i see white/black/silver often. Enjoy it, i recently picked up a white '15 altitude, and every time i park it i can't help but look back at it a couple times. thats how you know you made the right purchase.

SIDE NOTE: I see a lot of Altitude's coming with the matte grayish tail bezels. Weird because mine came wl what looks to be SRT bezels from the factory. Mine were gloss black when i took delivery on it..

Thanks! Yeah I see white, silver, and black altitudes all over. I only have seen one other red one since I got mine. I like the "exclusiveness" of it. Not many people with it.


The 14 and 15 came with the grey tail bezels. The 16's changed over to the gloss black. I never understood why they did the grey as they had to produce chrome, grey, and gloss black. Everything else was black, so not sure why they chose the grey. I'm happy to see the newer ones got gloss black. Looks worlds better.
