Lockable tailgates on 07 Rams?
 
I know the new Dodge Rams have the lockable tailgates, but I was wondering if there's anyway to make an 07 Ram's lockable. Has anyone either done this or know of a way to do this? I have a tonneau cover on right now and it'd be nice to be able to lock my tailgate. When driving the truck back from PA I had stopped at a rest stop in TN and when I went back to my truck I noticed that someone had opened my tailgate to see if anything was in there.

Any help is much appreciated!

I went into an automotive performance shop and they ordered one for my 08 and had it in in like 2 days and installed it for me. Works great.

Is it just the handle? Or a whole new tailgate?

Just a handle with a key lock.. The handle is fairly simple to pop out and insert the new one and it hooks up easy. Guy did it for me in 5 mins when I went to pick him up.

It's an aftermarket item, pretty cheap, and really easy to put in. Here is the first one that popped up on a google search.

I am pretty sure that is the same one that I have.

I have one on my o7. It's from a company called Pop N Lock. It just snaps in. Very easy to do.

Tailgate Lock
 
I too installed a Pop n Lock on my 07, and it installs in less than 20 minutes. It has a double sided tape on it that has to cure for 72 hours, but after that you can lock the tailgate,:smileup: and the handle will not move until you unlock it. Two keys are provided in the kit.:smiley_thumbs_up:

The POP n LOCK is a popular model, i believe that Pace Edwards makes it
i have read that it is easily opened though, just lift the handle up higher then you normally would

if you don't have a backup camera, this may be the lock for you

You can also buy a power lock. Pop and Lock makes one (part# PL8340).
