Foil-like heat shield on top of intake manifold
Upon removing the intake and exhaust manifolds a few weeks ago to install a Banks header system on my 2004 TJ 4.0, the foil-like heat shield that sits on top of the intake manifold disintegrated in my hands. The insulation between the two foil layers just fell apart. I thought: "no problem...I'll just get a new shield from my friendly Jeep dealer and install it after I finish the job." Wrong!
My dealer's parts dept. did not seem at all familiar with the part and could find no picture of it in their parts catalog. They ordered something for me they thought could be it--part #53013669AA. After several weeks, the part arrived two days ago. It was indeed a foil heat shield looking something like the one I took off, but it was way too short for the 4.0 engine. Does anyone know the part I'm talking about? If so, please tell me the correct part #. It appears this may not have been a part that was used on all TJ's...something of a mystery. Thanks in advance for your help.
