About Landing Slam Bodys

A    Jeep landing  slam  body   is   an   extremely   important   part   of   a   motor   vehicle’s construction  that  assists  in  minimising  the  damage  that  the  vehicle  might  sustain  in  a  front  end collision. The Jeep landing  slam  body panel can be found beneath the vehicle’s bonnet. It is made up of a rigid metal cross section that extends across the front of the car. Its primary role is to  protect  the  parts  that  are  located  in  the  engine  compartment  and  at  the  front  of  the  vehicle.  It also has a secondary role in that the vehicle’s headlights and its front grille are also attached to it.

As with all metal car body parts the Jeep landing  slam  body is liable to damage and wear and  tear  through  rusting. Although  this  type  of  damage  can  be  minimised  by  keeping  the  part as clean  as  possible  it  will  sometimes  become  necessary  to  replace  it,  especially if  it  is  damaged  in  a collision.  Although  a  replacement    Jeep landing  slam  body may  be  relatively  easily accessed  from  a  motor  parts  supplier,  because  of  the  potential  difficulty  in  fitting  it  and  the importance that it plays in protecting various vital components of the vehicle, it may be prudent to have it professionally fitted by a qualified motor mechanic.

Jeep trivia

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • There's a whole sport called Jeeping, and it's been running since 1953. It's a trek that usually takes place along the Rubicon Trail in the US, and 'Jeep Jamborees' are now so popular that Jeep even attends the events, often bringing new concept vehicles to show off.
  • 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.
