About Cowl Top Panels

Certain  car  parts  exist  to  protect  the  vehicle  against  damage  from  external  sources.  An  important component  to  protect  the  engine  and  other  mechanical  parts  under  the  bonnet  is  the  Jeep  cowl  top  panel.  Items  of  debris  such  as leaves,  dirt  and  twigs  can cause  considerable  damage  to  these  expensive  parts  and  the  cowl  top  panel  provides  an  invaluable  shield.

The    Jeep  cowl  top  panel  is  situated  at  the  base  of  the  windscreen,  close  to  where  the  windscreen  wipers  are  attached  to  the  car.  It  is  generally  made  from  plastic  and  has  grilles  to  permit  ventilation  but  keep  unwanted  debris  out.

If  a   Jeep  cowl  top  panel  is  damaged  it  loses  its  effectiveness  as  a  shield  and  will  need  to  be  replaced.  Fortunately,  most  motor  accessory  dealers  stock  replacement  cowl  top panels  for  all popular models of motor vehicle.

A  replacement   Jeep  cowl  top  panel  is  an  inexpensive  accessory  which  is  also  easy to  fit.  In  light  of  the  significant  damage  that  can  be  done  to  the  important  equipment  that  is  housed  beneath  the  bonnet  of  a  car  through  having  a  defective    Jeep  cowl  top  panel,  it  is sensible  to  keep  a  check  on  its  condition  and,  in  the  event  of  any  problem,  to  immediately  seek  a replacement part.

Jeep trivia

  • 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.
  • The original Jeep was designed in only two days! The prototype took 75 days to be built and then delivered to the US army that had commissioned the vehicle.
  • The Jeep is the only vehicle to have won an American Purple Heart medal. The award was given after a Jeep was the first US presence on the beach at Guadalcanal. The Jeep was only slightly damaged, with some bullet holes in the windscreen, but General Eisenhower called the Jeep one of "the three tools that won the war."
  • Jeeps have a distinctive flat slotted grill, but it's actually Ford that designed this part. Originally, the grill consisted of 13 slots, but by 1945 the number had dropped to seven.
  • 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.
