What is the Jeep Cowl Dent and what causes it to be so common?
It’s common to see a Jeep Wrangler driving around with the doors off. We get it, it’s a freeing feeling in the hot summer weather and would be a blast to experience. The problem is when the doors go to be reinstalled. The door opening limiting strap would not get reconnected when people would reinstall the doors. This strap prevents the door from opening up too far.
The door would then be opened and swing TOO far open and door mirror would be pushed into the cowl panel. This caused the notorious Jeep dent in their cowl panels.
