Caution: Installation of Pop n Lock Powered Tailgate Lock

Just a little information!

Tried to install the Pop n Lock Powered Tailgate Lock myself but had problems trying to get the wire through the stock hole of the tailgate.

I took it took a well known shop in the area and they also seemed to have trouble getting the wiring throught the small stock hole.

They rushed and utilized a screwdriver to get the wire through. This did work very well. But it also put a NICE DENT in my tailgate.

The tailgate is very thin and will bend very easily. They had to pay 500 dollars to reform, paint, clear, my tailgate.

This is a nice addition to the truck as you cant even lift the handle when locked.

Just wanted you guys to be aware of my experience.

Thanks!!
