Re: Jag fuel filler

You have to cut the recess out of the Jag donor car. Few and far between right around where I live.

It's a good looking unit if it blends in with the rest of the build on your truck.

Re: Jag fuel filler

That's a cap from an XJ6 - any year up to 1887.

There's quite a few of them in the self-serve junkyards around here in Phoenix.

Check row52.com to check inventory where you are.

There's usually a few on ebay too.

Re: Jag fuel filler

There's a guy in the Carolina's named David Bogner that parts out Jags and would likely have a good selection of fuel caps. He often buys whole cars to part and I'd imagine he'd have gas caps with keys. I've talked to him a few times and always found him very helpful.

His website is called everydayxj.com

Thanks for the compliments. Not to bad for a guy who can't weld!

Re: Jag fuel filler

If there is a number on the lock you can probably order a key from Jag, or maybe a vin number.
