I was referring to him and his comment. Either way you purchase the vehicle you are paying less monthly with more money down. I think the difference he is talking about is you have a cap price you meet in the loan where as a purchase you can pay extra and pay the car off. With a lease you just don't have a payment for months if you prepay it off.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

petey2133, yes, you are technically correct that a downpayment is going to lower your monthly payments for both a lease and a regular finance. But for leasing...which is essentially a long term rental...it's best to compare the deals without any "capital cost reduction" and many dealers will use that "down payment" to mask the true cost of the lease. Too many consumers don't question it or equate the down payment as just an adjustment to the monthly lease payment...it doesn't "click" with them that they are actually paying the same amount, despite the "lower" monthly payment. Ideally, if you are going to lease, you want the best monthly payment without that "capital cost adjustment" so you can keep your cash in savings. Unlike a conventional finance, you don't have any "ownership" in the leased vehicle so preserving your cash is a good thing to consider if you can. If in the end you really want to do the lease but absolutely have to keep your monthly payment below a certain amount, negotiate that AFTER making the best deal with no down payment. There's too much abuse that can happen if you state a payment amount to a sales-dude or sales-dudette...

I'll also mention for the overall good that the better lease deals are going to be on the upper trim levels/loaded vehicles because they generally have better residual values. The HA qualifies for that for sure.

Where about are you in the northeast? I am in MA and picked up a sweet deal from Brigham Gill Jeep dealership in Natick. I would highly recommend them. I basically traded in my wife's 14 Overland for the 15 HA for just under $500 month with only 1st payment down. Zero additional. This included pulling the lease ahead 3 months. Just could't pass this deal up. It's my second Jeep from them so maybe that contributed to the better pricing. Anyway I do recommend them as the service is great and very easy to deal with.

Very nice. Your off to a good start. If your installing James links than I would highly suggest putting the bora spacers on as well. If not your jeep is going to not look right with it lowered and the wheels tucked in. IMO the links and spacers combo is about as good looking as your going to get. It's been about 3 weeks now since installing that combo on mine and zero issues.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Just my opinion but I think the prices u guys are talking a bit excessive, if that's where the HA price range is, where would the summit or even srt be? Just sayin, based on the msrp, and I know it's more technical, I would say $1500-2k out of pocket and no more than $450 a month

Summits only retail for about $5k more then a well equipped HA so payments are probably $50-100 a month and SRT's always lease horribly, even left over 2015's still need lots of money down to get you under a $1000 lease payment. I don't think anyone on here is paying near $450 unless they dropped a pretty big chunk of money down or got a pretty amazing deal

Ok so if we go on your premise, a summit would lease for what $700 a month...smh that's insane

I would normally typically agree with Buckeyes opinion on looks, but this I don't. I think the HA looked amazing lowered without spacers. Infact, I feel almost exact opposite as him. I installed spacers the other day on my lowered HA and I'm having a hard time adjusting to the look. Something about the skinny non-SRT tires sitting that far out just isn't vibing right with me yet. It doesn't look bad by any means, but I think I feel like it needs wider tires to be able to pull the spacers off. I'm leaving them on for now to see if they grow on me, but if they don't they will be available for sale.

Let me know if/when the spacers are "for sale"

Wow I'm shocked. I don't think I could live without the spacers. I went from wanting to buy 22" srt reps to being completely happy with the spacers/links look to the point were I don't even care about getting the wheels anymore. I thought for sure you were going to love them. I'm kind of bummed out for you man.

I mean don't get me wrong if someone wants to cut me a real good deal on some 22" reps I'll jump all over it
