    I want to add a locking tailgate on my 2013 w/ back up cam, what works? What does not? How does the back up cam affect my options? Also adding a snugtop shell but i am assuming that the lock on the hatch does not lock the tailgate securely....

    I use one of those gun locks you get with a new pistol. Looped it through the d-ring and through the tail gate.

    I have 2013 Taco DCSB. I put on the pop lock PL 5304 about a month ago. The camera moves from the passenger side to the driver side. Other than that, no issues. The 5304 is a better color match than the original 5300, so worth the extra $20. Check around... I found a great write-up & pics from a couple of years ago with step by step install instructions.
