This RedRock 4x4 Old Glory Fuel Door is for those of you that have a 2007 to 2018 JK that are looking to dress up the side of your Jeep just a little bit. For a very long time, the fuel filler cap on the Jeep has been left open, it hasn't had a cover on it and that lends to the more safari rugged styling of the Jeep. But if you are looking to customize your Jeep a little bit, maybe make it look a little bit more finished and in this particular case also show off your patriotic side, this is going to be an excellent choice for you. This is going to be a very easy piece to install, definitely one out of three wrenches. In fact, it's easier than a lot of other fuel doors because this one does not require any drilling at all which is something I really, really like about it and something we're gonna talk a little bit more about when we get into the installation of this. The other thing that I do like about this one is the price. This is a very inexpensive piece especially for the quality that you're getting. So, talking about the quality and about the construction, you're actually gonna get a stainless steel fuel door here. So the surround and the door itself is going to be stainless and then, you're also going to get the filler surround. So, the entire part that gets recessed inside of the Jeep. It replaces the factory piece that is going to be plastic. So, this is a combination of both metal and plastic. On the front here, you have your graphics. Of course, the flag in this case. And then, you have a couple of Allen head bolts around the outside just to add a little bit of that rivet detail. As you can see on our Jeep, we have that same detail on the fender flares. Looks really good. But even as a standalone piece, even if the rest of the Jeep was stock, this is still going to blend in and really look like it's belongs on the Jeep. It's not going to look foreign at all. The thing that I like about this cover over some of the other ones is that it is going to be spring loaded. So, there's a small spring behind a piston in here, so when you open it, it stays open. And when you close it to about here it does wanna snap shut. Some of the other ones are not spring loaded or they have an external spring that doesn't seem to work quite as well. Now, some people do wanna get a fuel door because they want something that's lockable, they want to keep people out of their fuel, and if that's something you're looking for, there are some other brands and some other options out there that I would steer you toward. This one, of course, is not going to be lockable for you. So, as I mentioned before I think this is incredibly, fairly priced for what you're going to get. This comes in at $20 for something that is stainless steel which is generally a more expensive material. I think that's a great deal. And the fact that it installs as easily as it does without the need to drill anything, again, makes it completely worth the cost if you're looking for a piece like this. So, I've said a couple times that now that this is a very easy installation. Let me show you exactly how to do it. So the first step in this installation is removing the taillight. And you're gonna do that so you have access to a couple of clips on the factory surrounds so that you can remove it. Now, there are four screws on your taillight, you wanna remove the ones toward the inside of the Jeep. These two here. The other ones would just remove the lens. These two will remove the entire taillight. So, we'll go ahead and remove those screws and then we can unplug the taillight. I'm gonna use an impact here. You can just use a regular screwdriver if you want to. With the taillight removed, we'll have access to the area behind the factory surround so we can push the plastic clips and remove it. But before we can do that, we have to remove the fuel filler cap. Your new fuel door will come to you assembled. It has the front surround which is the actual visible part and then the back piece here that's the plastic part. What we're going to do is unbolt it and separate it. It makes the installation a little bit easier, although it's not completely necessary. In order to do that, there are four of these Allen head bolts that you have to remove. Once we have that outer section removed, we can install this rubber grommet. It's very much like the factory one on the factory filler surround. Now, this is going to be a little bit difficult to get installed. Luckily, it's only something you have to do one time, so you just have to be patient with it and sort of wrestle it into place there. Now, there is a top and a bottom to this, so install it in the same way that the factory one is installed with this outer lip sticking out and not sticking in. Next we'll install the new filler surround. It really just presses into place like the factory one came out using a couple of plastic clips to retain it. Now, we're going to replace the fuel filler cap and then we can bolt the fuel door itself back on to the new surround. Use caution when tightening these Allen head bolts. They're only threaded into some brass nutserts, so it would be very easy to strip those out. That's why I'm using the bit from my impact just tightening these by hand and not actually using the impact. The instructions do give a torque setting of 15-inch pounds, so if you wanna to torque them down you could. But just snug them up, don't over tighten them or you will cause some damage. The last step that you need to do to finish up this installation is reinstalling your taillight. Go ahead and plug the wiring harness in, make sure it clips. Get the taillight lined up in the body and replace the two long Phillips-head screws. So, as you can see a very, very easy install and that's one of the reasons that I highly recommend the RedRock 4x4 Fuel Door that you can right here at extremeterrain.com.
