    I tried all the parts stores in town, and NONE have a pair of locking gas caps, or pair of gas caps to fit my truck period. What a joke :mad:
    I have dual tanks, but the seals are shot so when I get cranked up on a incline it starts taking a leak- not good. And the ky is worn down and barely opens the locks

    EBay and JCWhitney came up short- anybody know of a place?

    I can't seem to find my catalog, and have one on order, but they don't have an online inventory :confused: Really want to see what they look like before purchasing

    I'm almost positive that LMC has locking gas caps, you could also try http://www.classicindustries.com/ You can browse their catalog online (It's really big though - covers Chevy trucks from the 50's all the way to the 90's... pretty extensive). Anyways on their site you can see what you are getting before you buy. :o

    Edit: Heres the exact link to the Fuel and Exhaust secion of their catalog. Scroll down.. first page you have your locking gas caps. ;)

    go to the normal parts stores like autozone, napaonline or summitracing websites you can get parts delivered to your door. I lived in germany for 7 years, it was still cheaper to order parts online than pay the german prices

    hmmm..... no shortage in locking caps around here, they have walls full of them here with only a few empty slots. The problem I've had is finding a pair that are keyed alike that fit my truck. It's like they forgot about me. I never thought I'd go into a parts store and my '73-87 trucks would be considered so outdated there isn't parts on the shelf for them. WHat's this world coming to :haha:

    Gas Cap's

    Have you tried, www.autozone.com , I know they sell things online that are not availble at the AutoZone stores around me. I just had to go through them online for a set of door locks for my girl friends Wrangler. They were not availble locally here in BFE Wisconsin

    I would buy two that are the same brand and take them to a locksmith and have him rekey one to match the other. I just had a locksmith here key two of my toolboxes to the same key and it cost me 8.50 with 2 new keys :D

    shoot- that's not bad! I saw that partsamerica.com had a pair, but they were $20 EACH, so $40 for two caps! I'll just get two separate ones and have them rekeyed when I get sick of picking the wrong one, the shipping would probably cost as much as the locksmith :haha:

    Just keep the receipt for the caps incase the locksmith finds he can't remove the pins to rekey the lock. Might have to try a few different caps before you find one htey can work with. I know my locksmith is a wiz. He unlocked the deadbolt on my house and the door handle lock in under 2 minutes with a pick set when my keys were stolen.
