    If you want it to work with your key for your truck, you'll need to look for the oem locking handle. I bought mine off of ebay and it works great. make sure its oem and not like oem (pop-lock)

    it's actually a gm tailgate handle I bought brand new. You can buy one from the dealer or you can find some of them on ebay selling them. All you do it follow the directions that come with it, you do all the install. Once it's in then you put your truck key in and it will code the lock to your key. very simple actually. took me and 10-15mins to do it all. The only thing is you have to follow what it says to the "T" because once you put the key in and turn the lock it codes it, if you dont do what it says and mess up you have to buy another one. it's One chance only.
