Also what size spacers are you running on there. Your jeep looks so sharp man

JTS97Z28 is the member you want to talk to about the links. I'm running the Bora 1.25" spacers. Originally I wanted to buy 22" srt reps but for $200 for the spacers and $90 for the links I am completely satisfied on sticking with my 20" wheels and saving $2,000.

Ok I had the same question so I'm going to repost the answer James gave me so this should help make sense of it.

Ok here is how it works...try not to overthink it. Your Jeep will not function ANY different than it currently does. ALL height settings will work exactly the same as they do now, except that it will be about an inch lower in all of them. After you install these links do not do or change anything from how it is now.
Your Jeep will still drop to park mode when you put it in park (if thats selected), it will still drop to "aero" height when you get into the 55mph range, or when sport mode is selected. If you want the Jeep higher offroad 1 and 2 still work just like before.
So again, park mode will be an inch lower all around, aero mode will be an inch lower all around, normal ride height will be an inch lower, and same with offroad 1 and 2.

So to give you an idea of what your new normal ride height will be, its pretty much your current "aero" mode. Hope all this makes sense, but its really simpler than you think. Same as before, but about an inch lower in all settings.

Auto raising to aero? It lowers to aero not raising. The point in the links is that the HA simply looks better a tad lower. Not that I have one, but I can stalk you guys lol

What do you mean the backup sensor freaks out and brakes hard? The jeep does not stop itself in reverse if that's what you're saying.

I believe he was talking from entry/exit height.

No. The links do not keep it constantly in entry/exit height. The suspension still functions EXACTLY like it does stock, except each setting is approx 1" lower than original. The Jeep will still drop to entry/exit height when you go into park, it will still raise to normal ride height when you start driving, it will still lower to aero height in sport mode or in the 55mph range. I can't think of any way to make it simpler or more clear.

Looks good. Few more angles?

EDIT: Will that fit a plain ol' Altitude?

No, High Altitude and Altitude have completely different bumpers and fender flares. You will have to get Laredo/Limited/Overland specific splash guards for yours.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

How does everyone think those splash guards would look if they were body colored instead of flat black?

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Wondered that myself, my stepfather had a Dakota that they were body colored and it looked great. I'm still undecided on flaps for this thing....I live in PA so they are a necessity but I just don't feel they look right on the GC. Thought about more chip guard if anything? All our rigs are looking great!
