This Rugged Ridge Locking Gas Cap Door is for those of you that have a 2007 and up JK and are looking to add a gas cap door onto your Jeep to give it a little bit more of a finished look. And with having a locking on, you also have that added security that no one is gonna be able to get in your fuel tank and siphon any of your fuel. Now, the exposed fuel filler cap on a Jeep has sort of been an icon of the Jeep for a long time. It helps to give the Jeep that off-road rugged styling that a lot of us really do like. But, again, if you wanna change that up a little bit, make the Jeep look a little bit more finished, this is gonna be a nice option for you.This is also going to be a locking gas cap cover that is going to be significantly less expensive than a lot of the other ones on the market. This is going to be a no frills fuel cap cover. However, it is going to get the job done and it's going to give you that finished look that you're after. This is going to be a steel gas cap cover. It has some mock rivets around the outside just to give you a little bit more of that styling. And, of course, this has that textured black powder coat finish on it which is going to help protect it and also help it to match a lot of the factory black plastic accents on your JK and a lot of the other aftermarket accessories that you might have bolted on it.As it says right in the title and as you can see here, this is going to be a locking gas cap, so this comes with a pair of keys. You can go ahead and lock it up and keep anybody out from messing with your fuel. Now, because this is a no frills gas cap cover, you do have to keep this one locked in order to keep the door closed. That's the only mechanism that keeps that door shut. Some of the other ones on the market will also have a magnet or a different type of clasp, so that you can simply close it, keep it closed and then lock it when you need to, because the lock can be a little bit of an inconvenience, depending on where you live and who pumps your fuel.So this is not going to have those options. However, again, this is going to be less expensive than a lot of the other ones out there. I am gonna give this a one out of three wrenches for the installation, even though there is a little bit of drilling involved in getting this bolted up and you should be able to get it done in under an hour. Even if you were to remove this gas cap cover and take it off the Jeep at some point, the very small holes that you do have to drill that are left behind aren't going to be all that noticeable. And you're not drilling into the metal body of the Jeep, just into the plastic fuel filler surround.So the process of the installation is really unboxing your fuel filler door. You're going to set it over top of the gas cap, get it oriented properly, get it nice and level exactly where you want it. Then you can open the door and mark the holes. After that, you go ahead and drill those holes and use the included hardware to get this attached into that plastic. Again, a very simple process, a little bit of drilling to do, but because you're just going into the plastic and they're holes that you're not gonna see if you were to ever remove this, I'm still gonna stick with a one out of three wrenches.Because this is a no frills fuel filler cover, this is going to be one of the less expensive options on the market. And even though this one does have the locking mechanism on it, it still comes in at just around $40, which again is gonna be less than a lot of the other ones. If you are looking for something that's made out of a more premium material, if you're looking for one that has some additional features and options, we have those available as well, but you can expect to pay roughly double what you would have to pay for this one.So, again, if you're looking to save a little bit of money, if you're looking for a no frills, more basic option, this is going to be a great one that will save you some money. So if you're looking for a simple gas cap door, this is going to be a really nice option from Rugged Ridge that you can find right here at extremeterrain.com.
