Jeep captain, why have you kept the recovery bottle in the grille? Any particular reason? Otherwise, your Jeep looks good

Spike

P.S. Some fine tuning is still required

Thanks Spike, I was expecting this Question from someone. The recovery bottle on the grill is the mechanics creativity. No particular reason. May be for more cooling!! I have to ask him.

I know its not 100% complete, because you know there are limitations to what you can do remotely.

Hi,
Would like to answer this question, the recovery bottle is kept on the grill for easy access. We drive these machines with the windshield on the bonnet. So in such conditions, its better to have the access outside than inside.

Regards
Robinson

Hi Robinson,

Good idea,but anyway for the loss of coolant in the circuit, you will have to add coolant through the Radiator pressure cap na? The storage capacity of coolant reservoir is much smaller compared to the coolant in the circuit.

Hi Spike,

What you saying is right. This actually doesnt sever the main purpose of topping up of the radiator. And if am not wrong, this feature is not a original spec in the Jeep. I remember we doing it few years back, just to give a different look and of course to add the convenience of checking the recovery bottle.

Regards
Robinson

Shibu,
Though the recovery bottle is so out of place, somehow it does not look bad at all, somehow it adds character to your 3B.
Its a Jeep... do your thing.

Your 3B is a stunner.
