I would do a search of the vendors that support this forum, had I joined the forum before I got mine. It's very important to me to support those who support the forum!

i bought the Mopar tailgate lock & the back up camera is also in the handle
(camera isn't as good as i thought it would be)
after i had it installed, i looked all over for the locking keys & then asked the service dept. where the keys were, i was told they were in the box the old handle was in, but, actually, the door keys that are within the FOB unlock the tailgate
the lock had been re-keyed

there are other tailgate locks worth considering

The Pace Edwards PowerGate electric power tailgate lock will lock your pickup tailgate the fast, easy and convenient way with your existing pickups keyless remote. Lock your tailgate every time you lock your doors

Pop & Lock Tailgate Lock PL3400

My 2009 did not come with a lock. I went to Lowe's and bought a $.50 cent hose clamp. Open clamp and hook it around where the tailgate installs to the body. Tighten 3/4 of the way and turn the clamp downward where you can't see the head of the screw. It might not stop them, but it will surely slow them down. They would have to sit there and unscrew the whole clamp off to take the tailgate. I'm waiting for one of the aftermarket companies to come out with a tailgate lock.

Thanks for the list. I live in the homeless capital of the south, and there are alot of scrappers around here. They are relentless- AC coils, wire spools, radiator cores, anything metal. Had a used AC condenser stolen from my driveway while I went in to refill my coffee once. Hate to put another key on my keyring, but I guess I could leave it locked in the cab.

I thought I saw somewhere (can't remember the thread) where the MANUAL lock was only about $35. The power module that connects into the key fob operation is a bit more though.
