I didn't get any locking ones but I do believe they do have a locking option.

I bought these lugs and it came with 4 wheel locks. Still have to put them on, but they are the correct size for the HA's.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I think this is the best option personally. These are the correct size as well to match factory. All are locking.

Anyone have experience with installing Mopar tubular side steps on their HA?
I had them on my '13 Altitude and was going to have them put on our '15 HA for our pups, but was told the dealer couldn't get them for the HA. I believe it's because they aren't compatible with the lower skirting (which is essentially the same as the Summit) and per the Mopar specs says the tubular side steps are not compatible with the Summit. They had a contact with another supplier which worked just fine. They are a little wider and lower to work with the skirting, but are wife and Golden Retriever approved so they work for me.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Has anyone had much success updating or finding an update for their Uconnect GPS? Just got my HA, and the maps are still pretty outdated even for a brand new car. These built in GPS units are pretty pathetic, especially if Chrysler forces a car buyer to pay $150 or more for an update.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I'm considering a 2016 HA, but only if I can install the Jeep step bars (to protect the lower trim/doors from rock chips). Can they be installed, or does the slightly modified lower rocker panel interfere?

Chips aren't really an issue, and you're willing to put on unattractive side bars just to save it from chips? If you aren't doing it for the function of them, why not just apply protective clear film on the lower door section? Lot cheaper, invisible, and you get to keep the clean look without having those bars.

I've never had an issue with rock chips on the side of the Jeep from my tires. They are tucked under the vehicle enough that I don't think the tires get the chance to throw rocks at the side of the GC. Explains why everyone is putting spacers on the HA. Then they might see a chip or two.

Even though I'm not a HA owner lol

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Got my HA back from dealer yesterday. Invoice says my heated seats were not working because my HSM was shorting out and they replaced the HSM. Well got to use them today and they are still only getting luke warm at best. These are the worst heated seats I have ever seen in a vehicle. Not sure where to go with it from here...

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Maybe I've just gotten used to the seats in the past month of owning the HA, but my driver's seat now gets warm enough that I end up turning it either to low or off halfway to work.

Chips are an issue in VT. Towns use a mix of gravel and salt in the the winter. My 2014 GC was all chipped on the rear door (including the protective film) and lower rocker panel. I have step bars on my '15 EcoDiesel and there's not a single chip in that area. Personally, I like the look. They give the vehicle a lower-looking stance IMO.

Back on topic: Has anyone tried to install the step bars on a HA?

I've read in other posts that Jeep has turned down the heat setting to avoid any complaints of the seats being too hot.
