If you're looking for a small but noticeable upgrade to your rig, the gas cap door by Rugged Ridge will definitely do the job. The plastic on the Jeep is pretty good at fading from the sun, and this is a great option if you want to cover that up and integrate to match other textured black accents on your Jeep, like light guards or other armor. This is a no-frills gas cap. This looks like it came straight off of a Humvee, and it's low-key, but it still will make an impact on your Jeep's look. It comes in a couple of different trims, like polished and gloss black, as well as polished aluminum and stainless steel. I'd give this install a one-out-of-three wrenches on the difficulty meter, with some simple drilling, and it'll take about 10 minutes of your time. But, I'll get into all those details in just a little bit. This gas door is made of a stamped steel that has a textured black finish, which will do a really good job at resisting any corrosion. This is a pretty low-profile door, so it has a flush surface and doesn't come out far from the quarter panel. It's really simple, but it also looks pretty mean once you take some notice to it, thanks to the black rivets on the outside of the rim. And, like I said, this has a very military style look and vibe to it, so it's something that you can beat up over time and it'll still look good. At around $50, this is a very affordable fuel door. Compared to other higher-priced options that we offer, this just covers the basics, but does a good job at doing so. And you're not missing out on much when you're going with a lower-priced option. These are the most affordable on the site at this time, and if the locking feature is something that you want for the fuel door, they're, on average, only $10 more. So, if you're looking to finish off your trim with a touch of textured black, this is definitely well worth the price. Like I mentioned before, this install is fairly easy, with a little bit of drilling required, but all of it's really straightforward, so I would still give it a one-out-of-three wrenches, in my book. All you're going to need is about 20 to 30 minutes of your time and a Phillips head screwdriver to get the job done. First, center the fuel door cover over the existing fuel filler trim, and make sure the door opens level. Then, take one of the self-tapping screws and apply force while turning it in one of the mounting holes. They should start to screw into the plastic at this point, so continue installing the screws in an X pattern, and tighten them all down at the end. And all these instructions and hardware will be included in the box. So, if you're looking to add some style to your JK, this fuel door by Rugged Ridge will definitely do the job.

Looks Good, But Doesn't Last Long
Fits perfectly and looks good, but only lasted me 2-3 months after installed. It stopped closing afterwards which defeats the purpose of the cap.Helpful (3)

Save your money
I purchased this in April and by July the magnets fell out the hinge was loose and the door would not close. This fuel door is garbage, I got one from eBay for $13 and it worked great. Avoid this item it's overpriced and poor quality.Helpful (3)

At first everything was great, but after a while, the magnets are rusted and no longer work good, leaving the door popping open all the time.Helpful (3)

Picked this one and was surprised how great it was after it arrived. Was planning on having to remove the tail light and pull the stock cover out. But no need, this one just screws into the stock cover. Took only a couple of minutes to install and looks great. Very satisfied with its quality and look.Helpful (3)

Looks great until after a year
I had this for just over a year (got it as a gift), and when it was first installed, it seemed great. Decent built quality, paint was of a good quality, but then after this past winter, it started to fall apart. The magnets started to rust, and loose their magnetism, they came un-glued, and the hinge became loose (seems like there is a small spring, and it is no longer "spingy"). Hopefully this is covered under warranty.Helpful (4)

Dont buy magnets are not strong enough and don't line up i had to go buy new magnets a little bigger to make it work. If you buy this one go but some new magnets and gorilla glueHelpful (4)
Is this made of steel? "High quality materials" doesn't hold much value to me. Thanks!
Thank you for your question! This gas cap cover is made of stamped steel.
How do I install this? Do I just force the screws in through the plastic or is there a correct way to align it?
Yes, the screws are just screwed into the plastic. Generally people align it so the opening point faces the rear.
Several reviews say the magnets don't hold the door closed or they fall off completely. Has there been an upgrade to fix/prevent this?
The magnets should indeed keep the door closed, and if you experience anything otherwise please contact our customer service department right away.
Will this fit a 2018 wrangler JL 4 door?
At this time, this gas cap door has not been confirmed to fit the 2018 JL models.
How does it stay closed?
The Rugged Ridge Non-Locking Gas Cap Door will stay closed using magnets.
