That's because I don't think it became something you can turn on and off until 2016.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

The weather broke a bit so I decided to install my DIY lowering links. I may adjust some more but happy with the ride height currently. Also have enough threaded rod to make about 6 more links if anyone is interested.

Looks excellent to me. I gotta get mine on this week. I think, hope, winter is over.

Thank you, me too! I checked out long range forecast and we have a few disturbances but for the most part no accumulation!

Thank you! I really have been inching to do this. The most simple and inexpensive modification. Unfortunately no spacers as of yet, I really like our wheels but have been eyeing up some other options. I probably will just bite and put the spacers on next.

Here is the maintenance information for our engine line up. Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - Maintenance information and schedules

Personally I use Mobil 1 full synthetic in all of my vehicles aside from my work truck. I just never started with it and it gets changed so often.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Well I got my black wheels, black lug nuts, 1 1/4" spacers and lowering links all on today. Along with it all dechromed and tail lights tinted - it's CIN S TER. The links lowered it about an inch. It looks good. Can't get pictures 'cause it's raining here. I'll get it cleaned up tomorrow night and take some shots Saturday.

Very nice man, would love to see photos when you get them done.

I bought the spacers and cancelled my order because I think I will start looking for SRT take offs at some point.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

So...I replaced 8 interior bulbs with Superbright LEDs today. The two front seat courtesy lamps, two foot well lamps, to back seat reading lamps, two cargo area lift gate lamps. I did the four backup lamps, too, with Putco Plasma 7440 and 921 White LEDs from Amazon. WOW! I'm not sure the backups provide much more lighting but they look great. The interior lights are definitely brighter and they look soooo good. I will tackle the map lights this weekend. Thanks to James for all of his advice. Since installing the lowering links that aside from easing entry/exit, and looking so great the way the oem tires and wheels now seem to fill out the wheel wells, I'm having second thoughts about installing the spacers. If I decide not to use them, and I am unable to cancel the order for them, there will be a set of BORA 1.25" spacers for sale to anyone interested. I'll definitely give someone a good deal. PM me if interested.
