Default Should my Laramie have a auto locking tailgate standard?

Hi guys,

Should my Laramie have an auto locking tailgate? All of my work trucks do and they are slt models. I purchased a 2011 Laramie for my wife and it has a backup camera but no auto lock gate.

Wondering if this was an option??

Might be an Option but I would hope the Laramie would have it as standard. Wow, that makes no sense that it does not, Maybe its there but there's and issue with it? I would pull the tailgate cover to check.

From 2009-2012 there are no auto tail gate or rambox locks from the factory. I know for a fact that you can add an electronic lock from mopar to the tailgate.

In 2013 they did add electronic locking tailgates and ramboxes and they call it all secure. In 2013 I am fairly sure it is now standard across the board.

Arth is correct.

I had the Mopar tailgate lock installed and married to my key fob.

Works flawlessly.

Part number is in my signature.

Thanks guys, is the tailgate lock plug and play or does the dealer need to program it?

You make it work. In the kit it provides wiring that you have to run back to the cab or the switch.

This should answer all of your questions if you click here.

Good Info, I thought for sure the Laramie would have one, I figured my SXT did not have one cause it was a lower end model. The install is fairly easy, just passing it down the frame all the way to the front is long. I would not have a truck without it.
