Locking gas cap

Aperently some one tried to steal gas from nearly every car in the complex i live in.. lucky my TJ is right under my window and the light is right above it but my neighbor didnt have that luck and its now half a tank of gas less.. I take that as a precausion.. what gas cap would you recomend.. i used to have one that felt like it froze in the winter and i changed it with nonlocking one.. it was all slipping and clicking like crazy i thought i was stuck at a gas station with the gas light on at a sunday night.


Again what gas cap do you recomend and where to get it?

Thanks you in advance

I kind of like electro-shock security alarms. Less mess than a steak knife.

I just changed mine. It was the Jeep factory one because it would not open any more. It took a big hammer and a big screw driver to get it off. I put a new Stant on .

Not a big fan of locking gas caps, if they really want it and can't get the cap off they will punch the tank. Kinda why I don't lock any of our TJ's when the soft tops are on. If someone wants to steal the factory am/fm/cass, go for it, give me an excuse for that new pioneer bluetooth head unit I want..with the removable face.

Just watch yourself at full service stations. I went to one and drove away with a locking gas cap...that I never bought. The guy wanted me to drive back to jersey to get it taken off. I told him to mail me the key because I wasn't going to make it. What a mess.

I use one, Wal-Mart sells a good night vision camera that can be hooked up to your computer for around 60 bucks. you can set it to alert and motion detect for video capture, in a grid that would just cover your jeep with "Active Webcam" software. clear clean video.
