Locking Tailgate Handle


Recommended Posts

My 2005 Silverado does not have a locking rear tailgate. Has anyone ever added this to their truck? And where is the best place to buy? It would be ideal to have it tied into the lock/unlock from the cab and key fob. However I would think that will be a much more involved install so I wouldn't be opposed to just have a manual lock.

I added the Mopar power locking handle to my Ram. Pretty easy, just required me to run the wires up to the engine compartment and tap into a couple wires in the distribution center. I wouldn't have a truck again that didn't have the power tailgate lock, pretty handy.

If you are just doing the lock, it looks really simple.




And then the power kit is separate for $86


Likely other brands available. First choice would be a factory accessory but I don't think chevy makes one.
