I understand the power lock upgrade and want that. I just dont know if I want to spend $400 for one little handle..lol

Jesus, wish I would have known this before I bought my 09. I would have got a 10 atleast with a locking handle..lol

I cant belive the prices. I found a 2007 handle, with lock with key for $30 on ebay..lol

Hang on here. The 09's have a locking handle.. it just has to be locked with the key manually.

At least both of my 09 Laramies have so far.

the regular handle with the hole for the lock tumbler, the tumbler, & the black locking mechanism are less then $100

if you go with the power locking type
or
the lock & camera type

is what the price difference is
---------------------------------------------------------------

this is what many people have used

Pace Edwards PowerGate

http://www.pace-edwards.com/Tailgate-Locks

others use the POP n' LOCK
it may be good, but i just can't get past the name, for some reason

_____________________________________________-

my '09 did not have any type of locking mechanism, when i bought it

here it is now

Sorry to say, you are correct.

I ended up adding a camera to my late model year 09 that came with a lock. When you buy the camera kit, you get the complete handle and new unkeyed lock. So I was able to sell the original handle and unkeyed lock to someone in your situation. If you can find someone that has added the factory camera kit, you could buy his old handle and new lock for a good price. I know a lot of guys did this so they have to be out there. You would need a few other small pcs but the handle is the pricey part.

Well the handle and locking mechanism are almost $100
Then what's the part number for the tumbler?

Dont I also need those arms that connect to the locking mechanism?

Well that pace edwards lock looks pretty cool. I still would need to buy the handle and lock though right?
