2008 gas cap tether/bale

My 2008 gas cap has no tether/bale. Its annoying that I have to hold onto it while gassing up. Did the 2008 wk come from the factory with a tethered cap? Did someone just change mine out for a different one perhaps to fix a check engine light for bad gas cap? The genuine mopar part on amazon has a tether. Is there a hole for it to pop into?

I put a lockng gas cap on mine and then there was no place for a tether or a place to put the cap. I epoxyed two dime size magnets on the flat parts of the top of the cap and now I stick it to the door when fueling. Works for me.

So, the original cap had a tether that attached to the door?

Yes they do. Mine came off at the door, so I flipped the ends around. Worked like a charm.

Thanks. I found a hole in the hinge of the cover that looks like where the tether should attach. Ill get one of the factory caps off of amazon.
