About Bumper Towing Eye Covers
Bumpers come in a variety of styles and shapes, both dependent on the make and model of the car and can be added to and customised in a number of ways.
Some bumpers will have a towing eye, on either the front or rear bumper, which is where a rope can be attached so that the car can be towed. The towing eye is commonly made of steel and is basically a solid ring or hook.
To protect and make the overall look of the car sleeker and more aesthetically pleasing, a Jeep towing eye cover is fitted onto the towing eye, usually secured by screws. The type and style of the towing eye cover will depend on the make and model of car and the specific shape and form of the bumper.
If the bumper towing eye cover is damaged in an accident, for example, or has simply worn out, it's advisable to buy a new or replacement part that has been manufactured to fit the make, model and year of your car.
- People that own a Jeep are very keen to show it off. In 2015, research was carried out that showed Jeep is the second most popular car brand to see on Instagram. The Marque is the most popular Jeep model on social media. While this is a surprise when you consider the bigger names in car manufacturing, the fact that Jeeps can become such an integral part of the travel experience may go some way to explain the Instagram popularity.
- Jeeps have been seen a lot on the small screen, with perhaps the most recognisable being their use in the award-winning TV show Breaking Bad. Both Hank Schrader and Skyler White drove a Jeep, although it was Schrader's 2006 Jeep Commander (XK) that looked the best.
- Jeep has had eight different owners to date. The current owners of the iconic brand are Fiat-Chrysler, but the name has been owned by recognisable names like Renault and AMC.
- Nobody knows where the name 'Jeep' comes from or why it was used. One theory is that it's a play on the phrase General Purpose Vehicle (GP), while others maintain that Jeeps are named after a character in the Popeye cartoon, Eugene the Jeep.
- It's not something that you'll be able to find to buy, but there was a prototype of a Jeep made in 1945 that could fly. The vehicle was called the Hafner Rotabuggy, and it had blades like a helicopter.
