    Anyone know of a locking tailgate latch ? Looking for one for my 95.
    We're building a bed box for storing my fishing gear and other stuff in the bed. The box has locks but a extra lock on my tailgate wouldn't hurt.
    Thanks

    PopNLock makes an actual handle that can lock or an actuator that locks the OEM handle with the power locks.

    I have the actuator in the tailgate that hooks up with the power locks. It's worked great ever since I bought the truck. Almost two years now. Super robust.
