Can't find a part number on this. It only had one screw in it, in the front trunk on a '73 Thing with a gas heater. Anyone help with Part ID? Thanks

It is just a heat shield for the heater exhaust to keep stuff stored in the trunk from being damaged by the heat from the outlet pipe. IIRC it is held in place by three sheet metal screws, a couple of which take a long screw driver to reach.
