Got a much better response out of this different dealer. At least the service manager took pictures and agreed that it did not look right. There was a 2016 HA on the lot and it did in fact have the leather with black stitching.

It's funny, but both dealerships that I have been to say that the material is leather even thou the tag says vinyl. This second dealer just agreed that the stitching is wrong.

Interesting. jeeps website for 2015s doesnt list the HA as having a leather arm rest, but the overland does. Look at where my mouse cursor is.

It also says that the HA's don't have heated steering wheels, I know that is not true.

Right. Didn't notice that. It's like they copied the altitude options and didn't make changes.

That's hilarious, they actually straight up said that its leather to your face when you can clearly just look at it and feel it and tell thats its a plasticy vinyl material? ugh. And then to top it off they don't believe the label thats right on it that says vinyl? haha Or walk them out to any new High Altitude on their lot and show them the correct one. What a bunch of idiots.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

This second dealer wanted to know why I took the armrest off. Like I was voiding my warranty or something.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I took mine to a different dealer today. The service adviser stuck his head in and agreed it wasn't right, phoned up the parts department, and they had one ordered within 5 minutes. Glad I went to a different dealer. Mine should be here in 10 days or so as its shipping from USA to Canada (hopefully it's the right one). Thanks JTS for catching this one.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Just wanted to mention that I picked up a 2016 HA and mine had the correct armrest. I am glad I found this website as I wouldn't have checked for this. Of the 3 HA's the dealer had, 2 had the correct armrest (Black and Billet GC's) and 1 did not (White GC).

Glad to hear most people are getting them replaced.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

FINALLY! The dealer says they have my arm rest, but it has to be put on by the service department. Hmmm. 5-10 minutes in the parking lot will turn into an hour or two I suspect. I'll be out of town in Evanston, IL seeing the kids and grandkids, so I can't get there till Monday. Hopefully, they got the right one and I'll be able to report back that it is done. Pray for me!
