My 2010 had them. Didn't bug me too much whenever someone made a comment on mine I'd just ask them to walk to the front and look above the grille and kindly read the shiny four letter word loud enough for the whole class to hear lol. My 2012 still doesn't have em and I'm gonna keep it that way. I call them Idiot Dimples


WHITE JEEP CLUB #171

My other Jeep's not a Chrysler.

Just dented my passenger side. Can you purchase a replacement cover?

From my Rugged Ridge Snorkel install, I've learned that you can pull off the fender and the dented area is reachable and can be punched out.

Mine has them on both sides! Mine are about the size of a penny, and I'm used to them (I bought used, and it already had them!) Of course, I'm the third owner, and mines an 08. I don't even worry about it, honestly its really not that big of a deal. However, if anyone knows an easy way that wont chip the paint, it'd be nice to try!

My dents in the same spot are caused by the lower part of the mirror extension arm hitting the cowl from swinging too far while taking off the doors.

If it really bugs you guys, it's 15 or so bolts and the whole fender/cowl comes right off. You can push it out from the inside when removed.

“Battle scar”? It’s more like the belly button on a Pillsbury Doughboy; just a soft push with your favorite finger is all it takes.

This just happened to me. i was so mad on my tj even when the door strap broke and it has so much room above the cowl and hood. mine were not that bad and i was able to get most of it out with a blow drier and compressed air. didnt take it alll out but good enough for now until i pull the cowl and try to get the dent out. if that doesn't work i was thinking about replace both sides with the Warrior Products Outer Cowl Covers. $66 for both sides diamond plated. has anyone used these before? or have any other suggestions? it amazes me how much easier it is to get dents on a jk than a tj. And my jk is black so i dont think it would look that bad but i do like the stock ones because they are FREE haha.

I ended up getting the rugged ridge cowl armor after I got a dent on my passenger cowl. I love the product looks good

I like that idea - but for my purpose (if I am ever the idiot dimpler) would use either some polish-able aluminum or hard gloss plastic bonded down with two part structural adhesive. Just remeber if ANY moisture can be trapped - it will eventually corrode which is far worse than a dent.

I tend to like that area for things that a textured surface doesn't lend well to - like this year's display honoring the best friend a guy could ever wish for:

The wagon should, of course, be as light as possible, but strength should not be sacrificed to lightness, for on any but the regularly traveled roads, the wagon will get many a hard knock...

Did anyone decide to use the diamond plated steel set that Warrior Products makes?
