Default Hooking tailgate lock to power locks?

Is it possible to make the tailgate lock and unlock with the remote or when I start driving/open the door to get out? I want to keep the tailgate locked all the time but every time I lock it I end up wanting to open it and my truck is usually running (at the dump) so I look like an idiot trying to open the tailgate, then having to hurry back inside the truck to get the key to unlock it with a line of impatient people waiting to through there trash away!

Has anyone done this?

I just installed the Mopar kit on my Ram, as a note if you decided to go that route. Make sure you have the Revision 3 instructions, mine came with revision 1 and the wiring portion is not applicable to the 2011s.

I just put in the tailgate power lock this last weekend. No major issues, as long as you have the Rev. 3 instructions. I also had Brad's instructions available on the iPad; it was handy for some elements!

I have installed electric tailgate locks on my trucks for years. Have installed every brand/type there is, and this Mopar one is 100x better than any of the others. I've had mine for 1 year now, and not even the hint of an issue. All the previous ones always gave some sort of issue in the winter, and always had to be replaced within the year.

I really liked what I saw when I was installing it.....now I know why I got that good feeling. Mopar got this one right!
