Willy’s Truck Company created such a prototype. The vehicle was named “the Jeep”. The General of the U.S. later said winning the war would not have been possible without it. It is one of the most versatile, rugged, and loved vehicles of all time.

Attached to the wheel hub holding the brake pads that apply pressure on the brake disc is the Jeep brake caliper. The front and rear brake caliper of the Jeep has a number of pistons. Make sure the brake fluid is flushed completely every year. If you don’t flush the brake fluid, water will leak into the brake hydraulic system causing rust. This will eventually rust the brake caliper piston and seize up the caliper.
A Jeep Wrangler brake caliper comes for about 80$ while the price for a Jeep Grand Cherokee brake caliper is about 100$.
On the firewall next to the brake master cylinder is located the Jeep clutch master cylinder. Its primary function is to transfer the clutch pedal pressure to release the clutch. When you rest your foot on the clutch pedal and the pedal goes slowly to the floor it means the clutch master cylinder needs a change. The clutch master cylinder has a reservoir. The reservoir holds the fluid used in the clutch hydraulic system. Water is an enemy of the clutch master cylinder. Flush the fluid otherwise rust will set in the clutch system causing the clutch master cylinder to fail.
A Jeep wrangler clutch master cylinder has a cost of around 50$ and other models of Jeep clutch master cylinders cost about 40$.
As the oil is being pumped through the engine the Jeep oil filter is used to clean it. The Jeep spin-on oil filters are usually made of metal. Inside there is a paper-filtering medium which traps metallic shavings and dirt which end up in engine oil.

Most Jeep oil filters are available at a price of about 5$.
