    I also have the AMI door in flat black. The only problem with it is that they put a lock on it that uses the crappy CH751 key. There are probably at least 100 million people that have that key! It is used on just about every RV on the planet to lock the cargo doors. I replaced mine with a barrel lock from Industrial Lock & Hardware. You would think that with what they charge for the door they could put a decent lock on it! This photo was taken before I replaced the lock. (I also replaced the locks on my travel trailer at the same time, keyed the same, of course).

    you don't have to piss off opportunistic losers for them to see your truck as an opportunity. last time i parked my truck at a park and ride i came back and my license plate was gone. since then, anytime i have to leave my truck for any extended period where I'm not close by...i'll leave the dd, camry.

    It's a shame that you have to constantly worry about having nice stuff.

    I guess this turned into a for or against locking gas caps.

    I hear more about car break ins than tampering with or stealing gas. To me it's not worth the potential issues of installing an aftermarket cap. But if the tundra came with one from the factory I wouldn't complain.

    Not everyone can avoid it, but I just try to limit where and when I leave my truck parked. Don't piss off anyone on the road or in public and don't put any stickers on your vehicles.

    Hey everyone wow thanks for the good info. I agree people are dumb sometimes and are jealous of others with nice things.

    We all worked our asses off for are nice trucks and am sure we all want to keep them nice as possible.


    I think I’m leaning towards just the locking gas cap (part number mentioned above earlier) keeping the factory one in the truck just in case.

    My reason for the just the gas cap is probably because if someone (Ass) see’s the locking fuel door they may just (F) with it just because they know I’m trying to protect it. The cap would be hidden under a factory door and out of site out of mind. hopefully!!!

    Oh well, you can't protect everything. I thought about a locking gas cap, but I love the way the AMI door looks, especially since my truck is just red and black...no chrome anywhere!

    Don’t get wrong I like the way the AMI looks as well. And I’m sure it works just fine. I was actually thinking of it but also thinking about painting it to match my truck. Then the $$ started to add up in my head.
    And you 100% correct can’t protect everything but we can make it a little harder for them
    I was just stating my opinion for my needs.

    These are sort of pointless. Anyone that makes an occupation or hobby out of stealing gas can break that lock in a second, or do more damage and cut under your truck.

    Your better off leaving it unlocked. If they gonna steal gas they gonna steal gas. Dumbass kids will do more damage putting potatoes in your muffler or keying your car. Either way...its a larger risk to have this if someone wants to take your gas and cause more damage to your truck underside.

    Kids are too busy looting playing fortnite and GTA or making tik tok videos.

    I also use a Stant Gas cap. Works great with no leakage or EVAP Codes. I used the same one on my 2010 (bought around 2014 guessing) and transferred it to my 2020. Great for the price and I sure don't want anyone messing with my fuel.
