Locking Fuel Gas Door

I was searching for a proper way to lock my fuel gas door other than using the lock cap and I found this

Black Locking Fuel Door Toyota Fj Cruiser - All Sales

I think it should do the trick and maybe the guy next door will start paying for his fuel or maybe not

Re: Locking Fuel Gas Door

Interesting. I have never seen one installed. Looks a bit Hummer-esque, but might do the job just fine. I guess you'll have to try it out and post up how it went!

Re: Locking Fuel Gas Door

The locking stant cap retains factory looks and is less then 20 bucks. Much better imho

Re: Locking Fuel Gas Door

the only thing I hate about both the locking cap and this is adding one more key to the pile of keys--and I'm really good in loosing them

Re: Locking Fuel Gas Door

Very early (even before the first FJ sales in March 2006) Toyota announced there would be a billet fuel door that was never offered as an option. I wish Toyota would just add a lever to open the fuel door and another for releasing the rear window.

Re: Locking Fuel Gas Door

How does that attach? No drilling to install, but it locks? I'm confused.
