    I'm confused. You both have 2017 Offroads... did your not come with the locking tailgate? Or is that a package upgrade?

    Mine does lock but I am worried I will forget to lock the tailgate itself so I want the pop & lock so when I lock the truck with the fob it locks the tailgate

    That is a port-install option (at least in SouthEast Toyota territory) and is by no means standard equipment.

    EDIT: I'm referring to the power tailgate lock

    Another vote for pop n lock.

    Plus, it keeps stuff under the tonneau from walking away, too.

    I have a 2017 TRD Pro and it works perfectly. Not sure what the difference would be with your 2017 so I can't really comment. But it's not too expensive an experiment in any case, although I paid a buck less than what Amazon currently sells those for. Check out a local hardware store. Since you really only need one I'd bet you could pick one up for around $2. Just make sure you pay attention to the size of the clamp.

    All 2017 Tacoma's come standard with the locking tailgate. I have the base model SR with the utility package with no options and mine came with the tailgate lock factory.

    I was referring to the power tailgate lock which locks/unlocks the tailgate in sync with the driver's door keyless entry.

    All third gen Tacomas have a manual tailgate lock, something that is easily forgotten. With a power locking tailgate the chances of leaving it unlocked are substantially lower.

    This!!!!! I plan on getting the power lock, but again I want to help protect against "that couple of minutes" of being unlocked that might contribute to my tailgate disappearing...
