Well like already said it can be done, but won't be cheap. You can't do just the bumpers because the way the HA/Summit bumpers are they mould into the fender flares which then flow into the lower side skirts. So if you wanna change the bumpers not only do you need the bumpers, but all 4 fender flares and lower side skirts. Lots of extra parts to go along with the bumpers as well like all the trim pieces, and to complete the look you'll need HA/Summit exhaust tips (which you can't even buy seperatly). In other words, it would be easier just to buy a new car lol

Major cost involved because you have to change the whole fascia, not just the bumper. The HA uses the Summit components and you cannot "mix and match" with the non-Summit components. You'll be better off staying with what you have until you can fund buying an HA (or Summit) as a replacement.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Picked up a V6 White HA the other week w/ Harmon Kardon System. It's the wife's daily driver replacing her 2008 MazdaSpeed 3. I also own a fully modded 2013 Focus ST and a well bolted 05 F150 FX4. I am a die hard Ford guy but when it came to getting the new SUV I couldn't get past the interior quality and tech perks of the Jeep vs the Explorer. So far loving the Jeep and couldn't be happier with the purchase. Also getting 20 MPG combined with only 500 miles on it.

Also having the issue of the B pillars peeling back away from body. Having dealer order me all new ones as they are chipped at the top from the dealer applying a vinyl wrap to the roof and window trim (pics below). So far a heat gun and some 3M double sided tape has done the trick to hold them in place. Looks like the factory stuff is 2 very thin strips of double sided tape.

So far have done:
Green Filter High Performance Air Filter
Red Painted Brake Calipers
Lightly Smoked Rear Tail Lights and Reflectors (Painted)
Opt7 LED Fog Lights
18% Tinted Front Windows
Weathertech Cargo Mat
Overland Rear Hatch Badge

The dealer made a mistake and had a company wrap the car prior to me being able to pick it up. I wasn't too happy when the wife and I arrived to drive it home only to be told we had to leave it for the weekend to have the wrap removed. They also scratched it in 2 spots and broke some trim pieces (they are in the process of ordering and replacing all damaged parts) They also painted the mirrors, spoiler and antenna black. Wife and I didn't like the look so had them swapped out from a white Summit so the vehicle is back to stock HA form in that respect. Some pictures for reference in case anyone is thinking of painting their mirror caps, spoiler or antenna black to match the rest of the trim theme.
















Pics of my ST just cause (I'm very into the aftermarket scene and enjoy modifying vehicles. Hopefully the wife will let me play with the Jeep as well)

22.5 PSI, 300+HP/about 400 lb ft torque on pump gas
