Thread: Tailgate Locks
12-03-2009, 03:58 PM #1
Just had my tailgate stolen, should have known better and gotten a lock. Anyway when I replace it I planned to get a lock but ran across a few power locks that you can wire into your factory power door locks. When you use the remote or door lock swicth on the door it will lock/unlock the tailgate also.
Anyone using one of these they can recommend? They seem to be reasonably priced at around $100.Guess what I drive :whistle:

i found the key lock good but you have to use it steady because i left mine for a few weeks and it ended up seizing up on me and i couldnt lock it since.

Im not sure if McGard locks (the wheel lock guys) make a tailgate lock for the NBS but I know they have them for the classic body style. Its looks kinds like a wheel lock with a hook on it and replaces one of the tailgate mounting bolts so you dont have to have a key to open it.

The one that that replaces the tail gate bolt is McGard part number 76036. Easy install, and no hassle wiring or worrying about getting locked out of your own tailgate.

I bought a used tailgate off Craigslist but its white so now I have a two tone truck black and white. Eventually I'll get it painted black. Till then I bought one of the OEM tailgate locks from my Chevy dealer. I'm back in business, Thanks Guys.
Interesting story though, on Craiglist in Dallas I ran across 2 different ads. One had a black 2008 tailgate, the other claimed to be a junkyard gone out of business. Both individuals seemed very shady. Black tailgate guy told me its was sold then called back a few hours later and told me he still had it but he needed to meet immedietly, could not wait 30 minutes. The other guy basically wanted a text with exactly what I wanted and he would call me the next day. I believe these guys were taking orders to steal tailgates!
