Yessir. Pics on page 6 of this thread.
2013 ST2 now stage 2 running 22.5 PSI. Have about $5k into the build. If I keep it I'll swap the turbo out for a big turbo. ...if not I'm either getting back into a mustang or new powerstroke diesel. Given the plush interior of the Jeep I'm leaning towards selling it and my 05 F150 for a new F350 to be able to ride in comfort.

Installed 1.25" spacers last night, love the wider stance. Tinted all tail lights this morning. Getting the chrome trim wrapped around the windows real soon.

Also interested in how you tinted the tail lights and with what.

Have you noticed anything negative from the spacers such as any rubbing or road noise?

Im interested in the spacer feedback as well. What brand of spacers are you using? Could you provide a web link?

Great looking Jeep

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Sorry for some reason these posts just came through to me. Anyways. Tail lights were tinted at the local tint shop, $80 and they look great.
Spacers - make sure you spend the extra money for the good bora spacers, it's worth it. I learned the hard way once before. No rubbing and it was an easy install. Took me about 45 minutes but make sure you use a torque wrench not a socket wrench. I tried tightening the spacer lugs with a socket wrench and they came lose. Much wider stance and the ride feels better.
I wrapped my rear view mirrors tonight, 3m gloss black and love the look. I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
Painted brake calipers using dupli color caliper kit when installing spacers.
Next mod is wrapping the window trim with the same 3m gloss black.

Just go on eBay and type in Bora 1.25" spacers/ Jeep Grand Cherokee 2015. Should cost no less than $200.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Looking at installing a CAI for my 2015 3.6 HA. For those of you who already have a CAI on your HA, notice any loss in the LOW end torque? I've read that you might gain some hp in the upper revs which would be a plus (as well as some growl which I want to add), but I don't want to lose any low end power with my 3.6, which I'm already happy with. I've read that some feel they lose low end torque after installing the CAI. Wanted to ask on this thread since we all have the same vehicle and wanted to know anyone's real world experience. Don't know if there's a difference between V8 and 3.6 CAI performance but all are welcome.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

kirby, the only thing you'll likely gain from the CAI on the JGC is some "sound enhancement". The OEM intake is already pretty efficient.
