Billet fuel door. Where to purchase?
 
I have perused the forum and have found many people talking about installing/painting billet fuel doors, but not a mention of where they purchased one. I have an 07 WK and was wondering if we have any vendors on the forum that sells these or if anyone can recommend where to purchase.

i was blown away at how much one of those cost. its almost cheaper to get the putco door cover and call it a day..

I've never understood the whole billet fuel door trend. I guess if you had chrome mirror covers, chrome bull bar, chrome light guards, chrome step bars, and a chrome rack, a billet fuel door might look good...?

I was looking to find one in black or make it black actually. I like the billet style and the black would accent well with my setup. If done right of course.

same here, but i cant see paying $85 for a fuel door. ive been debating the putco cover and plasti-dipping it to match my "set-up" as well.

justforjeeps is way overpriced on everything. I think I saw wood trim for the main panel on there for $400.

Ebay. Or plasti-dip.

Anyone ever attempt to plasti-dip the OEM fuel door? Wonder how that would look or if it would even work at all.

Nevermind that last. It's double sided tape on garbage. Looks like mopar is the way to go.

I am not a fan of lots of chrome, I do like a little accents though. So I got the Mopar one and sanded, taped, and painted it from this:

I am very happy with the end results!!!
