Got same setup except mine HA is white. The HEMI needs a good growl and the HK just sound amazing.

I would recommend the following:

Black Lugs
MOPAR CAI
Led Fogs
Bright White Reverse LEDs
Interior LEDs
Lowering Links
Vinyl Wrap chrome

31.25" fronts and 32.5" in the rear. The rake is a bit much for my liking. Might shorten the fronts by a twist or two to get them to 31.5 - 31.75.

The backs look good, the front a little too low.

Looks great Petey! Inagree I'm not much for the rake, I like it more or less leveled out. I'm glad to hear you got your links ironed out, everything looks fantastic!

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Petey I'm glad you got it figured out. I think the ride height looks perfect. I personally like the stock rake as I have tried it leveled out and IMO it does not look good, but obviously you do what you like best. In my experience setting the wheel gaps equal front/rear gives the Jeep a sagging look. When I had mine leveled it always looked like I was hauling a thousand pounds of bricks lol. The cool thing is you can try it and see if you like it and if not adjust it back. If you bright the back down, or front up pay careful attention to your headlight aim. A leveled out Jeep will put your headlights up in the trees.

"To each his own" Thats what the true comradery in the car scene is about. Respect to each build or ones taste. Not all of us have the same way of doing things but the respect among us is what brings us together.

I agree the Jeep looks good with a bit of rake, personally I think it has to do with our roof line, the way it slopes, but looks good flat out. I looked at alot of Jeeps mainly SRTs with lowering kits to get my feel of where I wanted my HA to sit. I'm still not settled on my height but am happy with it. The beauty of our Jeeps we can adjust and as the wind blows.

Yeah I agree with James on this one. The stock rake looks much better to me.

I'm okay with rake, but I guess I should have said I feel like the difference is a little more than stock. Instead of 1" it's more like 1.25 or 1.5 lower in front than the rear. I'm thinking an inch might just be more on par with what you guys are getting. I could dig through all the threads but what's the fender height you guys got from front to back?

Also! When this thing goes into aero mode does it go down to like entry exit mode (I feel like that's really low for this car at highway speeds, and if so can you prevent aero from kicking in since it's basically aero mode all the time now?
Thanks guys.

Here is a photo I took before I went to work

tow hooks that don't require cutting, you say?

No, Aero is coded based on speed of being in Sport mode, no way to disable from what I've read. From NRH, Aero only comes down approximately .5".

Okay nice. Because I feel like just driving around in entry exit till the truck raises feels unsafe with too much camber on the wheels. Wouldn't want my wife driving at 70 plus with a stances jeep with my kids in the car lol

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

It may have been asked before- but other than the front fascia and tail pipes, are there any other exterior differences between the Altitude and the HA?

Lots of differences actually. Both front and rear bumpers are completely different. HA has SRT headlights w/o adaptive feature. The HA has Summit/SRT moulded fender flares. SRT lower side skirts, different 5 spoke wheels than the Altitude. And as you mentioned it has the different exhaust (Summit setup in black).
Basically the HA is a collection of parts from all the models lol. SRT, Summit, Overland, and Altitude. The only parts that are really exclusive to the HA are all the "Trivalent" dark chrome parts. The wheels are gloss black painted 2011-2013 Overland wheels.
It's like the boss at Jeep said make me a Altitude edition based off the Summit/Overland and use no new parts, just refinish some of them in different colors haha. And I love everything about it!!!!
