About Quarter Panels
The Jeep quarter panel is part of the car body which frames the wheels.
This part is the streamlined panel which covers the rear wheel arch, joining the rear door and reaching to the boot and rear bumper of the car.
The quarter panel on the side is usually welded on to the frame of the car, forming an integral part of the car body and the shape of the vehicle. It's contoured to add to the overall aerodynamics of the car. The Jeep quarter panel functions to protect the vehicle, passengers and driver inside the car, forming part of the car body. It helps to stop debris, such as mud, stones, water and sticks, as it's scattered about by the moving wheels of the car. The petrol flap/fuel cap can be found on the quarter panels on either side of the car.
Quarter panels are usually made of metal, fibre-reinforced plastic or fibre glass making them strong, rigid and durable but in the course of a lifetime may be subject to dents and marks and can easily be damaged in a collision. Over time the Jeep quarter panel may need replacing due to corrosion and rust. Quarter panels are made for a particular car make and model, so purchasing a replacement Jeep quarter panel will ensure a compatible part that will fit the make and model of your car.
- 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.
- There were a lot of car firsts in the 1963 Jeep Wagoneer. Dubbed by Jeep as the first-ever luxury SUV, the Wagoneer came with independent front suspension (a first for a 4x4), as well as the first overhead-cam six-cylinder truck engine.
- 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 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.
