Jeep 2014 Metal Piece

This piece is completely loose. I’m not sure what it is or what I should do. It’s on the undercarriage of the back of my Jeep.

That’s an insulation blanket that protects the gas tank from the exhaust system heat.

Bring the vehicle to a shop and explain the problem. And they’ll reinstall it.

Probably for free.

Yup… what he said…

That is a heat shield for the trunk floor/muffler, the fuel tank is 4 feet away from the muffler.
