I was staying in a hotel in El Paso. When I came out the next morning I found my tailgate open. I wondered why then I noticed that both my taillights were missing! I had to drive 300 miles without taillights. When I got home I replaced the lights with after-market lights then installed an automatic lock on the tailgate. Now my tailgate locks whenever I lock my doors. It takes about 2 minutes to remove the taillights with the use of cordless power tools. Easy pickings for thieves. Those things ain't cheap either! Soooo....Watch out!
