    I am upgrading to a locking tailgate for my 2011 Silverado 2500HD, I saw a youtube video how to change the tail gate handle from 99-07, but not from 08 plus. I am guessing remove the 3 screws on the inside of the tailgate, and then the two hooks from either side of the gate somehow connect to the the tail gate ... am I correct?

    I was driving by the dealership and figured I would stop in and see if the locking tailgate was in, go figure it was in. Install was simple, two screws hold the tail gate handle in place, the 3rd (lower) screw holds the cover on. A lot easier than the earlier years of trying to remove the plastic cover by unsnapping the plastic clips, that broke quickly. Nice upgrade!! Cannot wait till the BakFlip F1 tonneau comes in!
