Default 2009 tail gate

I'm trying to buy a after market tail gate lock for my 2009 1500 from Pop & Lock

There saying that their is a different tail gate on the 1500 than the 2500/3500

I looked at the Dodge dealer lot at the 2010/2011 trucks tail gates , the 1500 are the same as the 2500 and 3500.

It doesn't make sense that the tail gates would be different but I can't verify.

Can anyone answer this ?

The 2500/3500's didn't change until 2010 whereas the 1500's changed in 2009.

Are you hunting a lock to keep the gate from being opened at all or just from being stolen? I ask because I just bought a padlock thingy from Stylin Trucks that supposedly prevents the gate from being removed. It just arrived yesterday and I'm about to put it on. I'll post if it does as advertised.

Because I have a soft tonneau I'd rather have someone open the gate to see what's under the tonneau than cutting it open to see what's inside. If I had a hard tonneau I'd want a non-opening gate though.

Just put on the lock and I'll give it a thumbs up . Nothing will stop a determined thief with plenty of time it will sure stop the grab and go. You can see it HERE at Stylin Trucks.

the lock ismade for the older style truck and i dont think they will come out with 1 for the newer model b/c later in production locking tailgate became standard. only the early 09 had no tailgate lock. i bought the locking handle and mechanism from the dealer to convert mine over.

If somone is out to lift a tailgate, they most likely don't have tools. I just used a worm gear hose clamp installed just like that lock. Only 79 cents.
