Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Great, thanks for the pics! I have the chrome step bars now, I believe they are the same dimensionally so they should fit too.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I've read in other posts that Jeep has turned down the heat setting to avoid any complaints of the seats being too hot.

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

Chips are an issue in VT. Towns use a mix of gravel and salt in the the winter. My 2014 GC was all chipped on the rear door (including the protective film) and lower rocker panel. I have step bars...

Re: 2015 High Altitude Owners Thread

I'm considering a 2016 HA, but only if I can install the Jeep step bars (to protect the lower trim/doors from rock chips). Can they be installed, or does the slightly modified lower rocker panel...

Re: Diesel Smell After Cat Replacement

I wish I could. There are only a handful of Jeep dealers in VT, and I believe the one I'm going to (the one I purchased from as well) is the only one in the state w/ a diesel tech. The leak was...

Re: Diesel Smell After Cat Replacement

Re: Diesel Smell After Cat Replacement

Re: Any 2015 crd owners with def/dpf/p20ee issues?

Would a DEF issue trigger a P0420 code twice? Not looking forward to the round and round game, with only 1 diesel tech that doesn't work on the weekend, it's hard to schedule appointments.

Re: Studder/Skipping?

No, my Jeep was built August 2015. That makes me wonder if my engine has the old heads, or if there is some other issue?

I experience the exact same issue with my almost new (2000 miles) Ecodiesel. Typically occurs with light throttle at about 55 mph. My Jeep was built in August, which is after the mentioned TSB.

Re: Michelin LTX M/S2 update.....F.Y.I.

I had the M/S2's installed on my '14 when I purchased it. I had these on my previously GC and loved them. I found nothing but bad reviews for the OEM Goodyears.

My black untainted plastic is damaged, therefore it is no a paint issue.

Re: Paint Rock Chip Damage is Extreme

It's amazing that the vehicle with "the most advanced 4wd system in its class" doesn't appear to be capable of driving off road w/out damaging the vehicle.

Re: Paint Rock Chip Damage is Extreme

This is not a paint issue, it's a design flaw. Stand near the side mirror and look back and you'll see 2 areas that protrude out: the bottom of the door and the plastic trim.
