    and I am already trying to solve a mystery; lol. Before part of my New truck 'disappears' you could say. I have the New tailgate with the backup camera option. Because of this convenience; I cannot use the 'optional' locking tailgate handle<<<< which obviously means the 1000 dollar tailgate on my new truck can be stolen in about 15 seconds. The Parts guys at the Dealership told me they are sure an aftermarket has already addressed this problem with an anti theft bracket that installs at the lower left pivot point to keep the tailgate from swiveling out 'soo easy'. But for whatever reason they could not remember where they happened upon the link???

    If anybody can help before somebody turns up on the corner selling my tailgate; I would really appreciate it??

    I have tried posting in the 2nd gen forum but for whatever reason; every time I click on New thread it takes me back to the sign in window!

    Thanks in advance... My name is Maurice but most people just call me Mo. I live in Southern California; where the 'bullets and switchblades Meet'. San Pedro.. and I work in Los Angeles at night<<<>>so a locking tailgate bracket would sure be the ticket.:)
