for Truck accessories.
|1. The first thing is to get a hold of the new style gas tank filler door.
The Dodge PN for the brushed aluminum is 1-82207715.
|2. Next is to make sure all of the parts are in the box and prep them.
There is a small washer that is intended for 4-door Dakotas so unless
you are putting the door on one discard the washer.
|3. Next you will need to remove the old door. For this you
will need a T30 Torx as well
as a 4mm Allen key. I used sockets so I also needed a 3/8 ratchet, but if you have the
screwdriver type you can use those instead.
|4. The next thing you do is remove the 2 T30 screws holding the old door to the body of the truck.|
|5. Then you remove the old rubber door stops.|
|6. It should now look like this.|
|6. Now you take the new doors four (4) bolts and nuts off of the new
door and align the holes. Make sure you leave all of the nuts loose
until you have them all started and lined up the way you want.
|7. Here is a side view with the door open. (Notice the Rams head
on the door TOO COOL!)
|8. Now all you need to do is tighten up the four (4) bolts and you are
|9. Now doesn’t that look a lot better than that old door you used to have?|
The ingenuity of some Ram owners always amazes me! This mod is not expensive, looks fantastic, and anyone can
do this with a few simple tools. Thank you for the article Jim!
