About Headlight Stalks
The Jeep headlight stalk is attached to the steering column. This stalk has a lever on it that is used by the driver to operate the headlights of the vehicle and is wired in to the power supply unit of the vehicle using a multi-connector plug. The headlights are powered by a 12-volt electrical system known as a closed circuit loop system. This means that electricity is not flowing to the headlights when they are switched off. When the driver uses the lever on the Jeep headlight stalk the current is passed from the power supply to the headlights, opening the circuit loop and turning on the headlights.
It’s rare that a headlight stalk will become damaged through wear and tear, but Jeep headlight stalks could have issues with damaged wires which may cause electrical faults, burn outs and reliability issues. Another issue with Jeep headlight stalks could be indicated by a loose stalk which can result in headlights going out when driving on bumpy road surfaces. Tight Jeep headlight stalks can also cause issues as driver’s can have difficulty turning the headlights on. All faulty stalks should be replaced immediately and damaged wiring replaced.
- In the action film, Furious 7, a customised Jeep dropped out of an aeroplane, along with some of the other classic cars used in the film. Usually, this kind of stunt would use only the chassis of the cars, but for F7, they just dropped the fully built cars from the cargo plane and hoped for the best.
- 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.
- 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.
- Although they were designed for the military, it didn't take long before Jeep released a version for civilians. The CJ-2A had several features that were lacking on the military versions, such as a tailgate, a side-mounted spare tire, and an external fuel cap.
