Default Tailgate lock

Hi. Newbie here. Thanks for the inclusion
I have a basic 2008 F150 with a standard non locking tailgate. Can I just buy a lock cylinder and a different bezel and make it a locking tailgate? Thanks.

This might do the job if you want a lock to prevent someone from opening the tailgate.

If you are looking for a lock to keep people from stealing your tailgate, there are better choices.

Do you have a lockable tonneau cover or cap?

this won't LOCK your tailgate but it will help to prevent it from being stolen

at the bottom pivot point on the right side that slips out
get a worm drive hose clamp and fit it around that side
with tailgate open face the hex nut toward the front and tighten with a socket or wrench

it may not be the best but it is the cheapest and facing the hex toward the front you can't use a screwdriver and this will slow down and deter a thief and he will go on to the next Truck
saving you the cost of a new tailgate and a insurance deductible


For Those Who Fought For It...

It has a hard tonneau that has to be opened from the inside (tailgate opened).
