I just looked at the diagram for the back of your truck. Then I "borrowed" some pictures from another forum, It looks like you can adjust the latch. If you look at the third pic. the bolt hole is slotted. It might be as simple as loosening the bolt and sliding it closer to the rear of the truck. Wow, the truck in the pic is dirty.

I think that might fix the problem. I will have to call my dad and tell him I think I found a fix. Looks simple enough anyone could do it. Wish I had the truck with me to try it right now.

you may have to pull the interior panel to get to that bolt and nut

I wonder if your latch got bumped hard while loading something in the back

It is highly possible. Its also possible people opening the rear wrong has messed it up. No one seems to understand that you open the glass THEN the tailgate they always go tailgate first and wonder why it wont open.

Ok, so today I opened up the rear door and tried to fix the locking issue, but learned its not the latch that's not adjusted right it is the part on the window glass that latches in. Because the tailgate has sagged the latch is lower than it used to be so the glass clip needs to be adjusted down. It is easy to fix but I forgot my deep sockets in CT and I'm currently in VT so I will need to buy some deep ones up here to use and finish the fix.
I still keep finding glass every where and have removed trim panels and found shards behind them.
