Yeah, my dealer told me that too. I told them I already knew that, I opened the hood and looked! Duh!
I've got it all figured out REPLACE that message on the screen about the kids with "Don't forget to check under the hood for your engine cover" Yea that's the ticket!

I didn't realize they came with covers. I just ordered the parts. It was like $135 shipped

The Big Broncos don’t have covers either.

With the under body Engine compartment cover panels under the BS or Bronco , I cant see anything coming up to the top of the engine from below , unless it's under water or Mud that deep . Hay, there's a penny saver , just omit the under body chassis panel covers . LOL

oooops........after a few years ...do you think the wire connections will be OK..... possibly mud and moisture will collect and short the connections?...I guess an engine cover ......might help?...but I suppose its just for looks

Shortage? What Shortage???
Who has tried to buy an engine cover that has been told that they can't get one?
Shortage? What a bunch of BS...
Must be a shortage. Otherwise every BS would have one on the engine, and one for a spare. Lol

I think your assuming anyone even knows what a Hydra is
Am I a no one? There are three types of Hydra’s.
1. Mythical.
2. Evil foe of the Avengers!
3. The thing Firemen hook their hoses to.

Installed mine today, thanks Viking for the information and tips. Fairly easy installation, the brace came off easy enough, I didn't cut the zip ties on the tube connectors, I just pulled the connectors off the brace and left them intact. You can see how the cover holds everything in place really well and how they had to use the brace with no cover. I'm under no illusions that it is anything more than dressing up the engine bay.

hahahahaha...I owned a Jeep Commander for 12 years...It had an engine cover, and I never cleaned it...because it never needed it...BTW......the wire connections will collect mud, and in turn moisture...from your "cleaning" they will oxidize and make bad connections...youre too funny:cwl:
