If you don't want locking, I think the Mopar fuel door looks good.

There's a few really cool Fuel Doors. I personally like the Rugged Ridge Black Aluminum Fuel Door!

This is just my opinion. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance!

I would like to see someone with the Drake fuel door. I would also like to see them make a locking version.

I have the Mopar and I'm happy with it. I have a locking fuel cap keyed to my ignition but looking back on it, wish i would have spent the money on something else.

I'd go with the Mopar, it's a factory piece

I've seen the Mopar fuel door on many Jeeps. It seems to be a popular option, so I went with a RearWheels Fuel Door in Polished Billet Aluminum in black.

I've never seen another Jeep locally with it.

Here is a link: RealWheels RW202-2J - RealWheels Fuel Door in Polished Billet Aluminum for 07-13 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Not to hijack the thread, but can we get some prices here, too?

Thanks!

also i know there are different ways some of these fuel doors are installed. some are just caps that screw into the plastic that is already there while others are a true replacement piece. the locking doors that are just screw in caps are very easy to pop of so the locking feature is really not any good more for looks.

After looking at some aftermarket units that were Made In China, I went with the Mopar one. I'll admit that I am not sure where that one was made, but it is MOPAR designed and has a finished look to it.

My reasons for even looking at one were that I didn't like the exposed fuel filler. Looked like a likely place for snow, salt, mud, dirt, and rain to collect in. It also gives the Jeep a nice finished off look to it. Took like 30 mins tops to install including reading the directions!

Anyone with the Mopar door have any issues with it staying flush with the body at the top, such as due to the clips inside failing to work properly after a while?

I've had the Mopar door for about 2 months now. There is a very small gap either at the top or bottom (can't remember and sadly I'm traveling and not near my Jeep) but it's hardly noticeable. I'm happy with it, looks good and does keep snow...etc. out of there.

When I was installing mine I had a little trouble trying to get it tight all the way around. I reached inside with a flat blade screwdriver and pushed a couple of the tabs a bit to further lock them in place. Everything seems to be fine now.

Of the options I've seen I like the Jeep door the best. Just wish it didn't say Jeep, cuz it's pretty obvious what it is after all.

I have the Mopar door. It was super easy to Install and looks great.

Got it for about $90 at eBay.
