Wheels and lugs are the same. The only difference is tire selection. No longer using Forteras.

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

I see some are adding custom Overland badges to their HA - what about something like this - had this drawing made up, thinking of getting a badge for the back... guess I'm running out of things to do for mine...

Re: 2015-2016 High Altitude Owners Thread

Anyone with a 4x2 HA lowered? I guess one of the downsides of living in GA - with no plans to off-road my HA, dealer stocks plenty of 4x2's - only one on the lot when I went to buy one. Want to lower it just a little - not sure what to use - and see some pics first..

Shouldn't be any different than lowering any other non-QL equipped JGC. Check out the many threads in the Suspension/tires/driveline discussion area up above.

What it does have is a passenger side (right side) pop out access door that lines up with the tow hook mounting points. It was placed there to have the Euro type tow eye mount accessible. Those parts are not however included on the delivered car but can be ordered.


I have been working with a fabricator that sells a set of tow ring recovery points for the Grand Cherokee WK2. I have spoken to him about the unique situation with the Summit and High Altitude lower facia. He sent me one of his current rings and we have been reverse engineering a solution for the summit and High Altitude.


After working on dimensions. He is prepared to laser cut a steel front recovery point that will mount and fit partially out of the front access door. It will be designed to protrude forward a small bit as not to damage the lower front facia should it need to be used.

This is a link to his product page on Amazon, Others on the forum have used his parts which are similar to Chief Products of Australia.

Amazon sales page for the standard existing tow points; https://www.amazon.com/Grand-Cheroke...179410&sr=1-14



Included in this post are basic sketches of the design as a work in progress.

The design is for a straighter tow ring with a ring diameter and taper that places it just in front of the lower facia. The ring is steel and would be had in steel to be painted individually, or a Stainless Steel version would be available as is with his other tow rings.

Goal of final would be for a ring front recovery point that is strong enough and not require cutting of the plastic. It will be either steel unfinished able to be painted or Stainless polished.


If you have interest, please reply and I will pass the interest level on to him. It will certainly make the work he is putting into the fabrication worth while if others buy from him.



Pictures in order
#1 Original Tow ring that does not fit access door
#2 Dimensions of depth from access door opening to rear mount point
#3 Dimensions opening diameter of access door
#4 Drawing of proposed tow ring front recovery point to be fabricated.






Updated schematic of Tow Ring to be compatible with High Altitude tow recovery point access panel.

The stock black hooks blend pretty well you barely notice they are down there and cheap I think I paid $135 if you decided you want two of them, one for each side.

You did a nice job, looks good. I am really trying to keep away from cutting anything. I completely understand why you went the way you did.

I just had my armrest replaced with this part at the dealer. They had mentioned its a 600$+ part, but when I explained to them the issue they made the request and the manufacturer approved the replacement at no cost. Thanks to everyone who provided valuable info. The new armrest looks great, and its definitely a higher quality.

Good to hear. The service manager at my dealership is very clearly ignoring me now as he won't return a phone call about the armrest (after I gave him 3 weeks to 'research' the issue following my visit there and showing him all the paperwork posted in this thread).

Try a different dealer. The manufacturer must know this is an issue, because when my dealer made the email request to them for this part and explained the mismatch, they approved the replacement immediately.
