I bought my 2009 Ram in early 2009
it had no locking mechanism, just a plain handle

i wanted a locking mechanism & i decided to also get the back up camera while i was at it

this is the OEM tailgate non-locking manual control mechanism



this is the Locking mechanism that you will need
i need to find an image, sorry, but my computer is messing up, view these images, it is the correct locking mechanism

there are 3 different handles

1) plain tailgate handle
2) handle with a locking mechanism
3) handle w/ locking mechanism & a rear view camera & wiring that runs all the way up to the radio
