    I have a 08 Double Cab TRD Off-Road, and I have been looking around for a lock with a lever for the tailgate. I have seen many other trucks that have the tailgate lockable, but I haven't had much luck for the tacoma. Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks a lot

    I have a pop-n-lock that I grabbed off eBay. They're good, but they won't stop a determined thief. Another option is to do the pipe clamp method.

    I have a pop-n-lock and it keeps the bed secure, but it won't prevent a real determined thief. Got it from e-bay for around $50
