    I have a 2008 tacoma and was interested possibly installing a tailgate lock.
    Does anyone have any ideas how this can be done?

    thanks,
    Mark

    Pop and Lock makes a manual one, Dynolock makes one that works with the keyfob.

    Would you lose your back up camera if you install one of these aftermarket locks? Can the camera be mounted?

    Pop N Lock here...Very nice. My wireless camera will be mounted on my bumper so i don't have to run wire out of the gate.

    I like my Dynolock. Basically you pop the back cover off the tailgate and unbolt the handle and add a power door lock solenoid then run the wires up to the cab and tie them into the driver's door lock. They make them for camera versions or normal.

    I have the powered pop n lock . It works great and has no effect on the back up camera.
