Default Tail gate

ok when i lock the doors with the button on fob the tail gate does not lock has no lock, so even with my bed cover, the tail gate can still be opened. do you guys fit a locking system to it or something ?

I find it a bit pointless having a bed cover so no one can see in and yet you can just open the tail gate and have a look or worse steal whats in there.

what model truck do you have? if it does not have a lock at all, you can usually find the replacement tailgate handles on ebay. One for mine (an '05) is just about $15-$20.

If you do a search for "dodge ram tailgate lock" you will get a lot of truck accessory websites that sell a replacement handle with a lock. If you want to stay original, you might want to check the mopar website or dealer. One of my coworkers ordered a new replacement handle with lock through the dealer for his 2009 Dodge ram that didn't bring a locking tailgate.

Don't know how close to you it is, but there's a Dodge dealer website in Manchester, Uk.

Well, he IS in manchester

And the aftermarket tailgate locking handle is your best bet. Tailgate locks are important, especially if you have aftermarket tail lights.
