Exclamation Roof Side Rails on 2015 Altitude

Ok guys I need some help.

I am wanting to install some side rails on my 15' Altitude but I have read that this is not possible. With that being said I have called a few dealers around Denver and all of them have said it can be done and it should only take around an hour.

Can someone please confirm this can or can not be done before I go and buy the rails.

Jeep WK2 Roof Side Rails - Mopar # 55079172AJ, # 5079173AJ #55079172AJ_55079173AJ

Thanks for the help

People have mounted them reusing the existing bolts on the plastic rails without having to drill any holes. Yes it can be done and it's on my to do list.

Hello Joey,
I just picked up my new 2015 Altitude yesterday and want to install the side rails. The dealer says that it should be done by a body shop. Were you able to D.I.Y.?
THanks

You just reuse the bolts on the black one on the new one. Plug and play. I believe you leave the end bolts a bit lose so you can snap the plastic piece in place.

Re: Roof Side Rails on 2015 Altitude

there is a post here, a while back where someone did this as I remember. I'll try to find it but you should try the search function.
