Anyone have a Billet gas door on their TJ.

Who makes them -other than Smittybuilt version that costs $59 -any other companies?

do they replace the cap and create the seal or is it just a door that opens to reveal the stock gas cap? I'm hoping it's just a cover...

the reason i ask is because i want to use one as an access door elswhere...

Thanks

Omix makes em in black and chrome, for about $43.

Bestop make em in brushed aluminum and black for lots more $$$

Not sure what makes Bestop's so much better that they can be so many more buck than everyone elses...

I don't have any ... yet, but Bestop and Smittybilt say they use existing holes, no drilling.

None of them replace the actual gas cap. They just keep dirt out of the gas cap recess.

I have the Bestop model in black of course, it was a gift from my Wife. Any how it's a VERY nice piece.

Mango Picker is right on the money, it comes with a new plastic shroud which goes around the filler neck and torx head screws to attach it at the existing holes. I'm actually pretty happy with it, it keeps all the gunk and trash away from the filler neck.

I ended up buying a stock plastic TJ filler bezel.... then hit Harry's Upullit for a gas door from a chevy beretta and the gas door hinge from a ford or mercury...

cut my hole in the quarter... trimed the bezel.... lots of trimming on the hinge... and then drilled it so I could bolt the gas dor to it....

cheap custom access door -looks like it belongs there...
