Review & Install Video
This Barricade Locking Fuel Door with the chrome plating is for those of you that have a 2007 and up JK, and are looking to finish off the look of the side of your Jeep and add one more area that you can have a chrome accent. This is going to be a pretty easy part to install. I am gonna give it a strong one out of three wrenches. You do have to drill a couple of small holes, but they're just going to be in the plastic surround of your factory fuel filler neck. They're not going to be in the metal body of your Jeep, and they're not going to really be all that noticeable if you were to ever remove this and remove those screws. So again, I'm gonna stick with one out of three wrenches, but we'll talk more about the install in just a second. Now, this is going to be a lockable fuel door. So, there are the non-lockable versions available as well. If you are concerned about somebody getting into your fuel, either adding or subtracting something from your fuel tank, having a lockable version will give you a little bit more peace of mind. Now, it can also be a little bit of a hindrance to some people having to constantly have that key handy every time you fuel up, so again, if you don't want the locking version, we have that. If you want the locking version, we have that as well. This is going to be a very high quality,, very well built fuel door. This is going to have rivets around the outside, and these are actual metal screw rivets. They screw right in. They're not gonna be functional, but they do screw into the actual bevel giving them a very realistic look. There are a lot of versions of these where those are just stamped in there. Definitely don't look as good in my opinion, look a little bit cheesy. These ones look very nice because they are actually real. This is going to be an aluminum fuel door that has that chrome plating on it, so again, high quality materials that this is going to be made out of, and it does have a lot of functionality being the fact that it is the locking version. Giving it a really nice shine, a really nice look, and if you are adding chrome accents onto your Jeep, this is going to go with those very, very well. Again, install is going to be very simple as well, even though you do have to drill a couple of holes in your plastic fuel filler neck. So the first step in this very simple one out of three wrench installation is holding this fuel door up into place. You can put a level right across this area here and make sure that it's sitting exactly how you want it to sit, and then mark the holes on the inside of the door. Of course, you'll have to open the door in order to do that. Once the holes are marked, you can set it aside and make sure you're not gonna scratch it up and drill your holes. They're just a couple of small holes that you have to drill on that plastic shroud piece. Then you can set this into place and use the screws that come with it, in order to attach it into those newly drilled holes. After that, you can go ahead and lock it up, and you're good to go. This fuel door comes in at $100, and for what you're getting I don't think that's actually a bad price. Now there are gonna be some other ones out there that look chrome that aren't actually metal, that have the stamped rivets instead of the actual rivets around the outside, some of the less expensive versions might not be lockable, of course, but for something that is an actual aluminum piece, triple-plated chrome, looks good because it has actual rivets, and it gives you that lockable functionality, I do think that $100 is a pretty good price. So if you're looking for a lockable fuel door for your JK, I definitely recommend taking a look at this version from Barricade, and you can find it right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.
