    Default wheres is the best place to get a factory style gas cap?

    welp got the heep inspected today. Failed because of the gas cap. the guys at the shop lent me one they had sitting around so I could pass.

    It's one of those crappy little silver things. So where can I get a replacement without getting a small loan to cover DC's price?

    I work in the auto parts industry. None of the aftermarket suppliers make an exact replica of the factory gas cap. I bought mine at the dealership. It even came with the tether.

    jeepsareus.com You can give them a try. OEM parts for a bit cheaper than the dealership.

    Autozone, Kragen, Napa, they all have the gas caps and they are pretty cheap. I think the one on my CJ was $8

    I picked up a non locking cap for my 98 at autozone for about $8. exact copy of the non locking I have on my 97. I just hated using the damn key every time I wanted to fill up.
