to be honest, with all the other things that my jeep keeps making me fix, a motorized plate flap just seems silly, if I am being honest.
Now, on the other hand, nothing says ricer to me more than a motorized plate flap, unless you outline it with neon.....oh oh a neon outlined motorized plate flap, that's what we need.
well it is functional and serves a purpose at the pump, i mean if you go to car shows and can't refrain from playing with the switch the whole then it is worthless. its seems to be a nice single purpose use though
Too much time on some peoples hands I think.
Time would be MUCH better spent relocating the tag, or moving the filler to the TJ location IMHO.
Mind, with alllllll the extra effort it took to fill the YJ, I doubt I would bother with either myself.

That might be a nice feaure for my hot rodded 85 buick regal.... I have a switch in there now that kills the taillights. I just moved my plate on the jeep though since it seemed kinda out of place after I put the flush tail lights in.
and for everyone else ragging on this. it a great idea, no more hassle with the pumps, and I would relocate to TJ but I already have enough bodywork to deal with. it will be a nice change from the hell of bodywork.
I have had this idea for years now, it is so cool to see someone else with the same idea actually make it a reality. I hated dealing with the spring loaded plate holder so much that I ditched it and just screwed my plate to the body using the screws at the bottom of the filler.
My idea had a faster deployment time though for reasons I shall not discuss in an open forum...
