I paid $295 for the wrap job. Took them about 2-2.5 hours. I called 5-6 shops around the Denver area and they all quoted me $500 which I thought was absurd. The shop I went to had recently done the same job to a few HA's so I figured they were credible. Once they said $295 I was sold.

If I were you, I would just pay to have it professionally done. Its fun to DIY, but the time and money that it takes to repeatedly do the same job over and over again isnt worth it IMO. I would rather pay a professional to do it perfect once and not have to worry about it again. Just my 2 cents.

I don't disagree however I couldn't find anyone in my area that knew how to wrap so I tried myself and that didn't work. The paint job I did came out great but it's there for good and I'm not sure how it will hold up over time. Now I'm looking for someone to wrap the black chrome pieces on the front and back bumper but not having luck. I want all chrome gone

Hope you are able to get that done. I'll be wrapping all the chrome as well once I pick up my 16 HA. Won't be long now.

I'd say the seats are warmer. Still no where near what I'd expect them to be but they seem warmer than before. It is hard to say though as I don't know if I am just paying attention more than previously.

Well as I assumed would happen, taking the GC in about the heated seats didn't go anywhere. They basically said they can't do anything to increase the heat output because its functioning as intended. They've reduced the heat in the new models because of fire and burn risk. So that's that I guess...?

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Hello All ! Glad to be a new Jeep GC Owner. We're from McHenry IL, and Just Purchased a 2015 Grand Cherokee Overland "High Altitude". (Black on Black). Already added a few fun things: OEM Winter "Jeep" Mats, Door Sill Guards, New OEM Factory Roof Side Rails (Dumb High Altitude only had beauty rails that could not be used for Roof Rack), and Mopar/Jeep Roof Rack. It was easy to switch out the HA Roof Beauty Rails for functional OEM Factory Rails !!, Don't know why Jeep didn't use functional side rails on the HA or the A versions......

Were you using a narrow roll, like shadowline trim? You won't be able to make a complex curve with narrow vinyl without a few seams. An experienced wrapper will use a full size sheet and cut out what they don't need instead of trying to make a curve with tape.

This is the best pic I could find online to illustrate what I mean. I'm having my trivalent chrome trim & window trim wrapped next week, so I'll post pics of the install.

Thanks, that picture helps me understand how they are able to do it perfectly!! After seeing that I am more inclined to get it done since I now understand how they do it. Thanks!

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I also have a new High Altitude, Bright While, with the non functional roof trim. Might you have the Mopar part numbers for the OEM rails? Also, I think they use the exact same bolts and attachment points. Did you install them or have the dealer do it. How difficult? How do they look, with the stainless rails against all the black trim on the High Altitude? Thanks for any advice you can give me.

The OEM Side Rails are Part # 82212072AC & 82212073AC, My Dealer Ordered them, and I got them down to $96.00 each side, due to the sales guy said the ones on it could have a cross rack mounted..... I did it all my self and it only took about 45 minutes to complete. Already have the Mopar/Jeep cross rails mounted to them, and they hold just as good as the original ones do. The hard part is getting the front and rear screw just the right height so the trim is flush against the roof, as the front and rear screws on the OEM Side Rails are hidden.

If this is the case why are the other 2015 and 16 Jeeps much warner? This is only an issue with the 15 HA and Jeep needs to fix it. Guys keep putting pressure on your dealer, call jeep cares, and head over to carcomplaints.com and file a report. If we keep pushing some dealer will find a fix and we can go from there.

We don't necessarily know that, because the only mention of it is in a High Altitude specific thread. To really find out if it's specific to the HA or not is make a general thread about 2015 heated seats and see what owners of the other models say i.e. Limited, regular Overland, Summit, SRT.
