Is this a mod?

Hello,

I was looking into an issue in my buddies TJ and we found this?

It is the bottom of a plastic bottle. We removed this and his consitant heat coming out the vents issue went away.

I believe this is how it should look.

this was my TJ.. The problem was when you had natural air vent on, all you got was HOT air. So we chk all the flapper doors and actuators under the dash. All good. the we took the cowl off and found this.. OMG.. did we laugh. Now its pulling in the cool outside air and the change in temp is a good 8-10 degrees..

There is a cover that normally goes over that opening to keep rain water out (as it runs through the cowl). Looks like the PO fashioned a replacement for whatever reason. My guess is that the replacement was too low and did not allow enough airflow.

Without that cover, you may end up getting quite a bit of water in your cab the next time it rains. I actually had to silicon around my cover to keep mine from leaking around the edges during heavy rains.

You don't need a cover for '97. There is no special cover or box thing like in the new model TJs. The cowl completely covers that air intake and won't let any water get in.

Here's a good picture I was able to dig up showing you what mine looks like.

That makes sense freeskier93 thanks for the input.

There is a mod you can do to place an air filter on that cab intake to help keep dust down when you are on the trails and have the heat or air on. The mod should be in the FAQ area for the TJ's.

There is no cover for that on any TJ and there shouldn't be.Water can't come in unless the cowl drain is plugged.

My 01 has a factory cover.

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool.
Nothing like a permanent reminder of a temporary feeling. I have a few.
