2018 JK Altitude Editions. Anyone?

I assume they are pretty rare.

Would love to see some owner pictures.

The "Altitude" name is only on the Grand Cherokee now. The Wrangler Sahara version is called Smoky Mountain. The current Rubicon version is the Recon. I found this out when I purchased mine in 2017.

Wow, looks like that changed in 2018. The Sahara Smoky Mountain is now Altitude. Rubicon Recon stayed the same. It doesn't look like much of a difference from 2017 to 2018.

Yeah, I'm thinking of trading my '17 Sahara for an '18 Altitude.

My understanding is that Altitude is very much like the Sahara plus the 18" black wheels, black grill/body accents, heated non-embroidered leather seats & gun metal colored interior accents.

I'll post some inside pictures of mine tomorrow in the daylight, but in the meantime here are some external shots of mine the day I drove her home.

It was either this color or the Gobi configured the same way (minus the headliner) hard choice, but I do love the blue

Congratulations!

Can't wait to see what you do with it.

I'm having to carefully plan my mods as not to upset the delicate balance of spending power with my wife

I'm pretty much a poser, not an off-road person. I like the JKU for the look

I am thinking of adding LED tail lights. Quadratec makes some that look just like the factory ones for $149. I'd also purchase a set of LED backup bulbs. Also looking into LED turn signals and license plate bulb.

I ordered a Brandmotion backup camera and hope to have it installed this weekend.

Other than the wheel locks and the all weather floor mats, the lighting is probably all I can think of I'll be doing.

2018 JK Altitude Rhino - lots of Altitudes up here. Three white ones at the dealer closest to me alone. I just switched the Altitude wheels out for Rubicon Hard Rock take offs.
