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!!!!
Great answer. Thanks!

I like the chrome window trim and lug nuts, but I covered the trivalent chrome myself with 3M gloss black vinyl for $37 for 2 rolls 1 ft x 5 ft from amazon.com. And replaced the grill rings with stock gloss black painted grill rings for $189 including priority shipping.
Still don't have outdoor pics yet but will share these pics of my Jeep.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

How hard was it to get the 3m to stick to that stuff? Always wanted to do it just not sure how

The 3M sticks very easily and can be slowly pulled up and reapplied as you go. Heat from a hair dryer really helps get to the edges / wherever curves are. I had a good led precision knife set too, and a soft rectangular small square squeegee, fingers work best though. I got much better the more I did. I enjoyed the work too.

Is there any difference between the AJ front bumper and the summit from bumper that might let it fit the AHA?

No, the AJ and the AHA have the exact same bumpers front and rear.

Damn. I can't believe you figured out what I was saying. My talk to text jacked up pretty bad.

This bums me out a little bit though. Makes me want to buy the SRT lower front balance even more

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I was thinking of using vinyl on my outer vents. The glare from the silver trim can be harsh in the side view mirrors sometimes. I'm good at that kind of stuff but just failed miserably at applying a glass screen protector on my phone so maybe not as good as I think.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Are the rear seat footwell lights exchangeable? I tried prying off that tiny cover but didn't have much luck.

I'm having a hard time picturing what you're describing. I don't recall anything being overly bright in sunny conditions either. How are you seeing interior trim parts in your side mirrors?! Or are you saying light is shining off the mirrors and onto the trim parts? I could see that happening maybe, but I don't ever recall it happening or being an issue. If you don't already get your front door windows tinted. Works wonders for too much light and looks great too.

I believe the rear footwell lights are the same as the front footwell lights. They are LED chips on a circuit board. You can change them but it would require soldering and it's not easy as these are very tiny LEDs. It has been done though if you are up for the task. The 2014+ has the two front footwell lights, two rear footwell lights, and one shining down from the overhead console. All will require a very steady hand and some very good soldering skills to change.

Good point. I am getting my fronts tinted soon.

The silver trim around the outer vents reflect in the side view mirrors from the window. I can try and take a pic. This could be one of those things where ignorance is bliss.
