Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Cool, that makes 3 of us so far that will be visiting the dealer. I mean I guess anything could happen, but I honestly don't know how they could deny it when it clearly says vinyl on the label and window sticker says "leather wrapped arm rest lid", the stitching is the wrong color, and lastly all they gotta do is go look at another High Altitide on the lot to see the correct one installed. Should be cut and dry and a valid claim, but with a dealership I'm ready to expect anything
Not only that, but it's not unheard of for errors like this to happen. I was at my local dealer and they had a High Altitude on the lot with chrome emblems installed when they were supposed to be the gloss black ones lol. I think I remember another thread from years ago where a GC came off the line with the completely wrong colored arm rest console. There were pics on here.

I just popped mine and looked at it.

It says WK HINGE COVER MOLDED where yours says vinyl. The number above the barcode on mine is C01688009BL. Underneath the WK line it says serial number(s) 17431085 and someone added 321 behind that with a ballpoint pen.

OK... back to edit this. I don't have a label in the location shown. The only one I found was located on the underside of the hinge cover, so what I posted above is most likely related to that cover. Sorry about that.

And as g0rey1 posted above, this is exactly what mine looks like, right down to the texture of the leather...

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I was also already planning on going to my dealer and saying the same thing as suggested. The fact it's vinyl and silver stitching, not leather and black stitching as advertised means they'll have no choice but to replace. Jeep basically screwed us over with this on a $50,000+ vehicle.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Did someone already post the new part number for the correct leather one?

No but here it is. The console that some of you have in your High Altitude is part number: 5PN68DX9AB which comes up as a Summit black console. I didn't technically get this part number directly from a High Altitude console, but I compared at the dealership and the two are 100% identical.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I found a site that sells RA4 8.4AN UConnect radios to upgrade or replace older versions.
www.oemautopartsco.com

The do have the 2016 versions with the added functionality and features that we don't have on the 2015 versions in our HAs. I believe the 2016 version has some new hardware in addition to new software. I personally won't go for the approximately $1,200 but I'll bet some of you are interested. They also have YouTube videos showing how simple the change out is. I am only posting this as a FYI. I have spoken with them and they are very generous with telephone support.

What features am I missing out on in my 15HA ?

I thought I read somewhere in this forum (features of HA) that 2015 builds came with silver stitching for the center console.

What's the poll?

I couldn't edit my post from my iPhone. sorry for the double post.

Just pulled my build sheet and attached are the findings.

Page 6 states "Black Accent Stitching"
Page 8 states "Leather Wrap I/P & Center Armrest"

I don't see the words vinyl anywhere. Wondering what's up..

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

For anyone interested, you can find your build sheet/equipment listing online by entering your VIN and it pops up. As shown above, under OPTIONAL EQUIPMENT you will find Black Accent Stitching and Leather Wrapped I/P and Center Armrest.

Either they will say get lost we have no idea what you're talking about, or I might have a valid case and save myself almost $300 and not have to buy a new one. I could say hey go look at all your high altitudes on the lot, they have the right one. I might just go and do that, might be worth a shot.
Like you said englanderm, the fact that the actual window sticker says "leather wrapped arm rest console" is actually key. I'll let you guys know what I come up with.

Nothing against the HA as I almost bought one myself, but starting to feel like that GC is a collection of excess parts from the limited, overland & summit models - lol

I'm still not convinced that those seats aren't from a limited given they omitted the overland logo on what is supposedly a blacked-out overland model
