Those are smoked out with Nightshades very easy to do. Took us all of 10 min and that was just waiting between coats.

I've talked to a few Jeepers and they have all had negative reviews regarding the recon lights.

Havnt posted mine in here yet so I think it's time. 2.5" RK flex system, 35" FA's. Want to regear and throw a locker in the rear soon but I'm forcing myself to put $10k down on it first. Didn't want to get rid of the rims but 18" rubber is expensive and I don't like spacers. Also want tire carrier more armor and maybe a drag link flip. It never ends and I had no idea I was going to be going this far into modding!

Tinted the front windows, undercoated it, and painted the whole exhaust with black header paint so it doesn't rust out on me.(And so my muffler doesn't look silver from the back)





What did you use for the undercoating, and how did you go about doing it? Did you spray all the parts, some of the parts..etc? Did you use different cleaners, rust-check, solutions, paints, oils, tar based, wax etc..

Thanks for the help!

Looking good folks! So wild to see how these rigs morph over time. I definitely am a little envious at the folks that stuck with the original 18's.

Just picked up the DIY parts for the grill insert and will hope to have time to get that done soon. I can definitely say I've laid low over the summer, enjoying top off/doors off, but am ready to get back to some trail riding in the Fall coming up here. Hope everyone is well!

My Altitude, just bought it a couple months ago ( new/old stock) , I actually paid more for this one compared to a couple 13's I tried out as this was fully loaded and well, I liked it ...
Not any mods until next spring and then a BB and 33's, I'll keep the black wheels/tires for winter and will probable go with Rugged Ridge chrome wheels for summer with Duritracs ? I'm old school so I need some chrome so I did the mirrors , door handles and center caps on the wheels to break it up a little ...

Got it done from factory before I drove it on the road so it didn't need any cleaners or have any rust.
As far as i can tell they only sprayed the bottom of the body and the frame.

Bump this thread back up.

From what the dealer told me, they made 4500 Altitudes and 500 of them are 2 doors, available only in Canada so the 2 door might be kinda rare, but then again it's just a trim package ?

Too bad your so far away, I haven't seen another 2 door Altitude in these parts yet but I do know of one American from Buffalo that came across the river and bought one at the same dealership that I bought mine at in Fort Erie ..
I just found it odd that they're coming up here to buy, it's usually the other way around

Hi guys,

Have a JKU Altitude (ive posted on this thread about 2 months ago) and just checking in again... Want to upgrade my tires, but keep my stock rims. I see a few of you have done this, any suggestions? Want to run 33's with a 2'' lift.

Thanks

Nice I like the tread of those. I just want an aggressive tread but nothing too severe like mud terrains. My friend has a set of nittos on hers and loves em!

And yes I've had the code for the head problem, but it was reset by the dealership ...... Told to see if it happens again. I have 12500 miles on my 2012

I had drivers side head replaced and the fuel pump replaced so far.

Also on production numbers, just curiosity, does anyone here know how many were produced in AUTO or MAN transmission?

How bad was your mileage hit with that regear? Expensive?
