Locking gas cap for 02\'s ??

Where can I pick up a locking gas cap for an 02 TJ? I have been online and found many for earlier years but they specifically say, will not fit 2002. Thanks!

1. Welcome to the forum.
2. Thanks for filling out your user profile.
a. A name would be nice...
3. Read the New Posters Message at the top of the forum.
4. Participate! Two brains are better'n one!
5. That TJ's still pretty new...
6. Lots of aftermarket stuff's just hittingthe market.
7. Come to think of it.. I've not seen locking gas caps?
8. I'm sue if they exist... someone's going to chime in and tell us where they've seen them.

Thanks! Sorry, I can't believe I forgot to put my name in...consider it done! I'll keep plugging, but so far, I can't find any locking caps for anything past 00. Will one of those fit? I suppose I could go to the local auto parts store and grab one and return it if it won't fit... I did not think they changed things that much since 00..?? Thanks for the warm welcome! I'll be here for a while!

Unless they changed, 97-up should be the same. I have heard about a few other changes but I am sure the gas cap is still the same.

I got one from O'Reilly's for my 00 TJ. You may be able to convince one of the auto parts guys to come outside with you to see if it fits. Then again my brother works there so your parts guys may not be so nice. It should work though. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]

Re: Locking gas cap for 02\'s ??

You may not find one. The cap on my 02 is somewhat different than the one on my 99. Not in size or thread ..but turns. It's probably due to some minor change in the evaporative emissions control system. I believe that the dealer offers a locking for the TJ ..so if they don't offer it for the 02 it's because of that difference.

I tried to find one of the ebaystores "jeeparus" (or something like that). They sell OEM brand new stuff fairly cheap. The ebay stores site was down for maintenance ..so no luck. I bought an ashtray to replace one that was stolen (who in the heck would want to steal my ashtray??? ..heaven forbid a "jeep theif" [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]) ..it cost me $19 delivered (no - they didn't sell it to me for $5) ....but it was much cheaper than the local dealer.

Thanks for all the info! I will probably wind up just pulling a buyit and tryit and see what happens. I even called around to alot of the jeep supply sites and noone has been able to answer confidently. What I should do...is invent an 02 locker and I'd be in the dough!
