There is a way to make it lock electronically i know brad did a write up on it!
You can get the Mopar electric lock installed at the dealership which wouldn't affect your lease.My truck came with two full sized keys as well as the hidden keys......they all work in the gate.
That said, I agree.......I didnt think so at first, but having to lock and unlock by hand every time is getting to be a pain. I may consider adding the electric lock at some point, but my rig is a lease so I want to make sure I can do it without permanantly altering anything.....for the cost involved, could be a great convenience.
You should have received a separate key that looks like a normal key. Personally, I always use the key inside the fob to lock/unlock the tailgate.Is the tailgate locked by the key that is in the remote key fob ?
Just wondering as wouldn't it be a big pain to have to always take it out to lock or unlock the tailgate. Or does it come with a separate key?
I want to install a Bak Flip cover and would be opening the tailgate often.
I'm thinking that the remote lock kit would come in very handy.....
Opinions anyone ?
Hey another Hatter! Never noticed it until now.I didn't know that the truck comes with the additional regular style keys.
I still have 2 weeks before my truck order is due to arrive and wasn't sure if the regular keys came with it.
I see that Brad did a very good in depth walk thru on the installation of the factory tailgate lock............... apparently he is from Brandon Manitoba and that is my home town...........maybe I should look him up and see how many beers he charges for the install ? Well, everyone works for beer right ?
