Finally pulled the trigger and bought a Drake all black fuel door! Really happy with it! Install was super easy and its a very well made product.
Hurst line lock inbound next ;)

I am going to lower mine a bit, and I think your R/T would look great if you drop it ~1.5 inches

I don't like how anyone can open up the gas caps and pour a sugar mixture in there. I wish there was a locking one...
There is. I just got another one from Steve White Motors. There is no locking door but there is a locking cap.

I just checked Steve White Motors website and couldn't find the locking gas cap and used the Search button for locking gas cap and gas cap with no results found. I wonder if Pep Boys or one of the commercial auto parts houses carry them?

AutoZone here in Henderson didn't carry Stant but they used the Stant #10508 to cross reference to their brand DuraLast #5907 locking gas cap. With a Military discount it cost $16.53. Got it on now, and used a 1/4" drill bit to drill into the handle of the new locking gas cap to reattach the stock lanyard. Works good, drilled hole doesn't go into the sealing feature of the cap and then test drove the car to check to make sure there were no codes popping up due to the drilled hole in the handle. It's all good. :banana:

It still locks? I tried this, and mine no longer locked. Could easily remove gas cap

I kept getting check engine lights and fault codes with this cheap (compared to the Mopar locking gas cap), so I put the stock non locking gas cap back on. I have never, and I know you should never say never, had anyone put anything bad in a gas tank of all the cars I've owned. You can't put a hose down the fuel fill tube, because there's a restriction in the tube, so someone stealing our gas has been stopped.

great mod! I just installed the same fuel door on my SXT.

I searched and bought a Fuel Door insert. You can pull off that Fuel sticker and throw something else in there!

My wife went and got a new 2015 Challenger SXT today. We love it! Had one ooops though, when we got home, as she was pulling it in the garage, I noticed a giant screw in the front tire. So back to the dealer tomorrow to get that fixed. Glad she got the optional tire protection package. Came in handy already.





The one thing I dont like is the CHEESEY PLASTIC FUEL DOOR! OMG Dodge, WTF are you thinking! Would it kill you to invest is some freaking METAL.
Its not like the car is 10k geeze!

Is the DRAKE fuel door the only one available? I would like to find one with NOTHING in the center. I dont need a big label saying FUEL.


I found the locking gas cap on ebay searching for the part number above. Came up no problem.
