    I've been trying to decide which lock to put in my tailgate. Pop&lock seems to be the most common, but I'd love to have it automated with the rest of my doors so I'm considering the automatic pop&lock or other brand of automatic opener. Curious what other people thought.

    I've seen other threads on this, of course. The reason I'm posting this one is because during my search I found something rather amusing. The product demo video for the dynolock.
    http://www.dynolockproducts.com/installation/toyota05/tta05_instr.htm

    Yep, at the end of that video that's him going "Uh oh... fu...." and yes, they put that up on their website demoing their product. I'm also a fan of "if the tailgate unlocks and your doors lock, reverse the wires." Needless to say I'm not getting a dynolock :)
