Chrome fuel doors - are they worth it? If you are looking for a small statement piece or want to add chrome accessories, a chrome fuel door is a simple, fun way to add that pop of color to your vehicle without breaking the bank. When considering different auto trim accessories, most people don’t think about the fuel door but once you add a chrome one you’ll probably ask yourself why you didn’t add it before. On the highway or parked in a lot, your truck will turn heads and get noticed with a chrome fuel door.
Why Choose Chrome Fuel Doors?
Most chrome fuel doors are really just for aesthetics. They don’t offer much function, they simply cover the existing fuel door. But that being said, they offer tons of style and personality. AutoAnything carries several different brands for you to choose from so you can get the exact look you want to match your style preferences. Depending on what you are looking for, choose chrome trim for cars in many different material options - chrome-plated ABS, stainless steel, or aluminum are all fantastic options. Most come in different color options like all black or silver, riveted or not. All of these options are built to last and won’t be damaged by drips at the gas pump or knocking the fuel pump on it. I mentioned before that most fuel doors are purely for aesthetics but some brands offer fuel doors in locking and non-locking options. If you have the extra cash and want to add some function to your new fuel door, look into the locking varieties. Rampage, Rugged Ridge and AMI all have locking and non-locking fuel doors to choose from. If you park your vehicle outside overnight, a locking fuel door can give you the added function of keeping your gas safe from thieves in the night. It costs a little more than the plain covers but it does give you peace of mind. So if you have it in your budget, check those chrome accessories for trucks.
So, back to the question, are chrome doors worth it? They are certainly an inexpensive way to give your truck some contrast in color and show off your own personal style, plus, let's be honest, new things are fun.
How To Install Your Chrome Fuel Doors
Once you’ve picked out the perfect chrome fuel door, it’s time to install. The good news - most of these doors install without drilling. It’s simple to install these and will probably take less time than filling up your tank at the pump. Almost all the fuel doors we offer install with heavy-duty 3M adhesive. It’s an easy install with close to permanent adhesion, simply peel and place. AMI is also pretty simple to install but you will need a screwdriver to remove the old fuel door and replace with your new AMI door. Whatever fuel door you pick, you are just minutes away from a truck that will get noticed out on the highway.
