Thanks man

The ride quality has noticeably improved in the rear. It seems to be more planted over the floatiness of the stock Nivomats and ride height IMO is now perfect. I'm having the dealer double check the alignment on Friday since it's going in for the shifter software update and a code that popped up the other day for the oil pressure sensor. I read that the sensor failing is common.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Alignment completed today. Surprisingly the front toe was a little off on both sides as was the right rear camber. All is well now.

I also had the S27 Transmission recall performed. Didn't test it out yet.
Check engine (Code P0520) - Replaced Oil pressure switch.

There was also an update for the HVAC and TPMS.
Not sure what was included in these updates but I'm sure the info can be found online.

Props to Wickstrom Jeep in Barrington, IL. There facilities are a step above the other dealers I've visited and their service advisor was on his game. Dare I say their facilities and service would rival that of the local Audi dealer. (Except for the free service loaners Audi offers/none from Jeep)
This will definitely be my go to place for service.

MOF, brand new with my '14 White Alt en route. Love what you've done as I've just spent the last 4 hours reading every post from start to finish. Needless to say, my amazon shopping cart is bursting at the seams. Thanks!

Keep up the posts and valuable insight!

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

I've been working on modding my garage lately. I repainted it all and had the floor professionally finished. The Home Depot Diy floor kit looked ok but was starting to peel. This floor has a warranty and will hopefully look just as good for years to come.

MOF - the garage looks good, nice job.
I don't have tow package on mine, but thanks for the rear shocks tip on losing
that floating feel.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Just received my title and there's a good chance it'll be up for sale in the near future. When it's time I'll put up the intake, winter wheels and floor/cargo mats. Everything else stays.

I'll be picking up a basic daily driver until I find something that strikes my interest.

Whenever you put it up for sale let me know, I'd potentially be interested in the floor mats

I'm totally out of the loop... why are you potentially selling? Is it related to your Jeep being vandalized? Or just change of heart?
