I would not. Keep it separate.

Mine does not either. Most of the early TJ's don't have it. You might be able to adapt it, to it.

StaffCaptainZ06 Eagle, your local dealership should be able to figure out the part number.

What is this and is it important?

I am looking at re-routing my air intake so it's out of the engine bay and a little higher. Basically I want to route it through the cowl and make an airbox under the cowl. After opening it up there is this vent right where I wanted to be working. It looks like it is for the heater but I'm not sure and wanted to ask the experts. Basically would it be okay to cover this up or would I be looking at some sort of catastrophic failure if I do that? Thanks for the help in advance!

This first two pics are of the plastic "scoop" that is over the vent hole, the next two are of that piece removed and the last is looking into the abyss. Thanks again!
