    Another quick question. Is the red version visible at all from the outside through the space between the tailgate and the side of the bed? (when the tailgate is closed) The reason I ask is because I have an Inferno, and it would probably clash with the bright red. I think Inferno would be about the only color that would have this problem. If it's visible, I will order a black one. If not, the red one seems to make more sense for a thief to see it before cutting anything. Thanks for your patience with my questions!

    You can see it a little, take a look at the pictures on the web site as there is one that shows what you can see when the gate is closed

    Does the lock come with the black cap over the key slot shown in this photo?

    It's supposed to as per the install instructions. I think it's like a sticker that acts as a dust cover.

    Exactly. It’s a vinyl sticker. I shoved some grease into the key way as well

    Been busy all day making more of these. Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. I am continuously trying to keep up with the demand, but happy to help the cause. I am seeing quite a few trucks in the area without tailgates.

    Well the scratch and dent one is gone but the two new ones that have a slight powder coat flaw are $70
