Arrow Tailgate Lock on the CHEAP!

Just wanted to share an Install I just performed. I have been looking into the lock/unlock kit for my tailgate from Mopar but felt the price was a little steep, $100-$165. So I decided to do it myself. I purchased a standard aftermarket door lock actuator and about 40ft of 18 gauge wire and with the help of iRockCrawler's very good thread,http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=44463, got the job done in about an hour. Total cost of the parts was about $20.00. Everything is working great. The only issue I ran into was that iRockCrawler's thread was for a 4 door, mine is a Reg. cab. So the wire's I used were for the front drivers door(Tan/Green and Tan/White). Here are a few pictures of how I installed the actuator.









Hope this thread helps out anyone looking to do this kind of mod. Again special thanks to iRockCrawler, his thread was great.

Greg

Bring your truck on down, I'll help you out. Here is a link to amazon for the actuator, http://www.amazon.com/Power-Actuator...0142515&sr=1-6.
