I work at a Jr. High. I'm not worried about 'em stealing gas. I do, however, worry about foreign objects being inserted into the fuel tank. Locking fuel door is the first mod I'm doing on my new Sport.

Is it necessary to use a torque wrench?

No way my stock fuel collar will come off that easy on my 2012 JKU.

I can get the locking tab off the side closest to the tail light opening but a child could not reach the far side one.

What am I missing?

I bought and installed this one.

He has great installation video I used to install mine.
I think I bent the body panel a little because I had a hard time lining up the screw holes. And the screws I think were plastic! Anyone know how I can get replacement stainless steel black screws? I got three of em in but the fourth one I just stripped out trying to wedge it into the hole.

I watched the Terraflex YouTube video showing how to install. I bought the Mopar unit off Amazon. Install was very easy, only 10 minutes tops. The alignment pin on back of the flange was at 9 o'clock - which fit the hole in the sheet metal of my 2014 JKU perfectly. Quality seems pretty good. Fit to the body panel is good. Door hinge seems to work good - not loose.

I also got the Rampage locking fuel door—you can get it as a combo w/the Rampage locking hood catches from Qtec.

You're right pluke the 2, it can easily be ripped right off. Plus it was a bit of a pita to install, getting those stupid microscopic screws in around the edge. And it doesn't seem that sturdily built. And I didn't like the semi-gloss black finish (didn't realize until it arrived), which I promptly fixed w/a few coats of plasti-dip.

I went with the Rampage b/c I wanted a fuel door of some kind, didn't want to mess w/taking off the tail light etc. (à la the Mopar fuel door) or drilling, & I definitely wanted the Rampage locking hood catches (hence the combo from Qtec).
