Thread: Tailgate Lock

  1. #1

    Default Tailgate Lock

    I have a 07 GMC Sierra Classic but I had a 07 NBS Silverado that had a locking tailgate. I want to have one on my GMC but can't find one I like and was wondering if anyone knew if the insides of the tailgate (handle linkage) are the same or not so that I can just switch over the handle, the bezel, and have the lock rekeyed. I know that the newer style bezel is larger than the one I have now but from looking at it, it should cover the hole from the original one. I don't want a pop lock as I want to have only one key(the ignition key) to operate the lock. Does anyone know of a aftermarket lock for the tailgate that can be rekeyed to work with the ignition key?

    Below is similar to what I'm using on my 2009 Sierra. It's codeable so you can set the lock to whatever key you wish.

    AZ that is exactly what I want but I'm not sure if it will work with the classic as far as hooking up with the insides of the tailgaite
