Default tail gate lock

Is there a tailgate lock that can be keyed to match my ignition key for my 2008 ram 1500?

mine is a 2009 model, so it may be different
i have a key FOBIK & a VALET KEY within the FOB
my tailgate & my drivers side door both use the Valet key to unlock & lock

any lock can be what is called re keying, so your tailgate tumblers can be changed to fit your vehicles other keys, if they both use the same number of tumblers

I did an electric tailgate lock mod using an aftermarket doorlock actuator for under $10. It ties into the factory door lock wiring and work with both the door switches and the remote. Combined with my tonneau cover, the whole bed is locked tight. If you have any questions I'd be glad to help.

The tailgate lock can actually be re-keyed if it is the same number of tumblers or even if it has less number of tumblers. I have a motorcycle shop and the ignition key on all bikes works both ignition lock as well as gas tank lock even though it only uses about 1/2 the blade of the key in the gas tank assembly.

This looks like it is used to save the tail gate itself from being stolen, it is a good idea, but a hose clamp would do the same thing. I think the OP was referring to a locking tail gate latch to protect items in his box.
