Default 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.

Default 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, and the handle will not move until you unlock it. Two keys are provided in the kit.

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).
