I'm Ryan from extremeterrain.com, and this is my review of the Rugged Ridge Fuel Cover fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs. This cover is available in both black and a chrome style finish, in aluminum or stainless steel, and in a locking and non-locking version. So whatever you need for your Jeep, we have you covered. The fuel filler cap on our JKs is left exposed which can give it a little bit more of that rugged Jeep look and also follows in line with its ancestry, but if you're one of those people who thinks that looks a little bit unfinished, a fuel cover is a really nice option. While this is mostly a visual modification you can get a locking version of this which will add some function if you have concerns about people getting into your fuel tank.I like this fuel cover in particular because they do offer different materials, finishes, and functions, and they do it all at a really fair price. Once you decide to go with a Rugged Ridge Fuel Cover you will have a couple of decisions to make. As I mentioned they offer this in both stainless steel and aluminum. Now a low grade stainless will rust if it's exposed to the elements, and aluminum will oxidize if it's exposed to the elements. So to be honest I don't see a huge benefit of purchasing one over the other, and the prices are only marginally different. So you choose which ever one you like.After you choose the material you will choose the finish. I prefer the gloss black, but there's also a chrome style version available. Being honest I would like to see Rugged Ridge offer this in a textured black powder coat finish because I think it matches a lot of the black plastic accents on the Jeep a little bit better than the gloss version does. Finally you'll decide if you want the locking or non-locking version of the cover. The locking version offers some added security that a lot of people like while others find it inconvenient to need a key every time you fill up your Jeep.If you decide to go with the non-locking version you'll have a magnetic clasp to make sure that the door stays closed when it should, and all the versions feature a rivet pattern around the outside which gives the door a little bit of style. Getting these fuel doors installed on your Jeep is a really simple process. All you need to do is hold the fuel door up over the factory fuel cap and make sure that it's level. Once you have it leveled and positioned where you like you can mark the four holes, and drill four small pilot holes into the plastic bezel around the fuel filler. After that all you need to do is install the four screws that are included in the kit and you're done.The whole process shouldn't take you more than half an hour and all you'll need is a drill, a drill bit, and a screw driver. Now even though this is mostly a visual modification unless of course you get the locking version, and you have that additional function, I do think that these are fairly priced. They drastically change the look of the Jeep and you're able to get a lot of different options, and really customize what you want for your vehicle when you go with the Rugged Ridge version of the fuel cover. They're a lot of other versions out there that are right around the same price that may or may not give you quite as many options. It's important to note that the factory Mopar version of the fuel door cover is available for only a few dollars more. So it comes down to what you want for your Jeep.So if you're one of those people who doesn't like the look of the exposed fuel cap on the side of your JK, and you want something that's gonna finish off the look. But you also want options for finish, material, and locking versus non-locking I think the Rugged Ridge Fuel Cover is the way to go. They offer all of that at what I think is a pretty fair price. So that's my review of the Rugged Ridge Fuel Cover fitting all 2007 to 2016 JKs that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.

Hard to put key in
This product would be 5 stars but it’s hard to insert the key. And it’s not that secure. All you do is screw it into the existing one instead of replacing itHelpful (1)

DO NOT RECOMMEND!
Although it was easy to install and doesn't look bad, the small magnets that hold the door closed fell off shortly after I installed it. I've tried to replace them with very little luck. The only way that the door will stay shut is to keep it locked. If it didn't have the lock it would keep banging shut while driving. I reported this to the company and have heard nothing from them. Extremely poor customer service!Helpful (1)

Worth the money
looks clean solid and feels durable. Locked for the first few weeks but lock seems to be jammed? I'm not sure but the lock isn't super important. Other than that it is worth the moneyHelpful (2)

the supplied screws were too short and I needed to use different ones. I have a 2018 wrangler JL and clearly registered my model on the site as a JL and the mounting flange on the cap is undersized , thus the need for longer screws. I would have assumed a better fit. the key is very difficult to insert even after I cleaned up the key on a wire wheel and lubricate tumblers with WD-40. the magnetic closure will not hold the flap closed and you need to struggle with the difficult key for a tight closure. I would not purchase this product again.Helpful (2)

some generic, poorly fit, ugly, pot-metal piece of junk. the 4 mounting flanges for the screws DO NOT fit the stock trim. yea, you can hang there from the plastic with a few threads on 3 or 4 tiny screws, but it would not last and it certainly wouldn't hold up against fuel thieves!!! flimsy, cheap junk can be pried off with a small screwdriver or even a pin knife, or whack it with a tree limp a break it to pieces!!! WORTHLESS!!!Helpful (6)
