My current tailgate handle does not have either a lock or camera on it and I am looking to add these options.

Does anyone know where is a good place to find this item as I have been searching and am having no luck finding.

I am assuming that this handle exists?

thx in advance.

I went to the dealership & bought mine, mine did not have the tailgate light & people were going around & taking the tailgates & always taking the tail lights, they didn't even disconnect the wiring harness, they cut the wire so that they could have the complete connector too

I bought the locking mechanism & the rear camera, i have the radio with the screen that is needed
I am sure that you could get it cheaper on ebay now, with the needed wiring harness for the camera
the is also a power lock available, that works with the door remote, research for the best prices

I bought mine at the dealer. The install is fairly easy but, just know that you’ll most likely need to have the software for the camera installed by the dealer. A friend and I installed the camera but the MyGIG in my truck didn’t recognize it until the dealer installed some software to allow the camera to work.

This is best advice from GTyankee and about the best way to go. You'll find all of the stock part #s in this post above and you will still be able to use the key fob that came with your truck rather than have another fob hanging off your key chain. Also, here's another link for a camera option that another member sent me a while back when I was looking to convert my lock over.
The camera will fit in the key hole of the locking handle with a little modification. Best of both worlds, locking handle with stock key fob and backup camera for under $300.

Good Luck!
