These Hatch Covers fit directly over the existing gas cap opening. They attach directly to the original equipment plastic insert using self tapping screws. Some drilling required. Come in Locking and Non-locking.
Worked great for a while. Magnets in door fell out so locking had to be done all the time. Door hinge is flimsy.
Looks nice, easy to install
will this locking fuel cover work with smittybilt rear XRC ARMOR for JK wrangler? are there any locking gas caps that will?
Asked by torquerat from on
Hi Torquerat, This Rugged Ridge Locking Fuel Hatch Cover does not fit properly with the XRC Armor, however we do offer a high quality locking Cap for your JK Wrangler that will. Thanks for your inquiry. http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Exterior-Parts-Accessories/Fuel-Cap.aspx?t_c=3&t_s=21&t_pt=4681&t_pn=DRKJP-190005-BL

Do the provided screws screw in to the OEM plastic ring around the fuel cap, or are they going into the sheet metal?

Hello! This fuel hatch cover installs over the factory smooth cover. The new cover shows allen bolts on the outer ring which are fake bolts for looks only. The new cover screws to the old smooth cover on the inside when you open the dorr to the new cover so you don't see the screws. Very simple install with 4 screws. Thank you!

The factory fuel cap or any aftermarket plastic fuel cap can be used with this locking fuel door cover.
