On the picture above, was here a specific TSB? I'd like to take it back in.

Also, is anyone else experiencing it hanging gears periodically via 1st, 2nd, and sometimes third? Very annoying. I haven't driven an automatic trans in decades that has this issue.

Other issues I'm observing are significant rattles in the door panels. Going back in soon to have them secure more factory ignored wiring harnesses.

Same issue here with the shifting. Seems to shift very slowly. I tried the battery disconnect and that seemed to help but its too early to know for sure. Im getting worse gas mileage too which may be related. Driving to work i could get 26 MPG according to the EVIC in my overland. In my HA i see 22

Ugh, sorry you have to go through this kinda stuff. My recently purchased 2015 HA V6 does not hold gears whatsoever, even on some of the coldest days we have had. Sounds like something for sure isn't right. My door panels are solid so far, however there is a small rattle that I have been working on eliminating and I think it's in the rear hatch. One of these days I will remove the panel and see what's going on in there.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Hey...Just got Got my first Jeep ever in November...After 15 years of driving Infinitis. '15 High Altitude, Bright White, V6 (should gotten the 5.7) and love it. So far, I added Huskey Mud Guards front and rear. I don't like the chrome lug nuts on the black wheels. Any idea which black lug nuts I should get? Also....I would love to change the stock fog lights to LEDs. Any details on that? Also, do you know if the standard WK2 roof rails fit directly in place of the black plastic trim pieces on the High Alt? Thanks very much for any help on this.

Can you elaborate? I had few Infiniti cars as well and I would think a Jeep V6 would be very comparable. Not looking for a F1 speed, but don't want to redline the engine at each stop light just to move the car, thanks.

Gorilla sells a set of locking gloss black lugs for the WK2, I picked my set up on Amazon

Several LED options but I went with the Phillips Ultinon from Xenondepot

And I believe that you can retro fit the normal roof rack bars to the top of the HA in place of the plastic ones we have

I'm getting 18 max on a v6. I do have all terrain tires on the rig but it seems very low. Often trips are 15/16.

The shifting is very annoying. I'll have them take a look at it again.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

^^^ yeah roof rails are all plug and play and should be easy to swap. Won't look as clean with the larger rails (which are also chrome btw), so if you want them to look halfway decent on an Altitude you'll have to have them painted or wrapped.

I agree that the v6 is fine. But, other than the $3k premium, it gets the same fuel economy and goes so much better based on a recent test drive. All in all, though, I am in love with the HA....I like it even more than the Infiniti QX70 (FX37) and at many thousand $ less.

Ordered these for my 2016 HA that I hope to set my eyes on next week if the trains run on time.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Are any of these locking lugs in this setup? Do you sacrifice having a locking lug to get these gloss black lugs?
