    I just learned that there is a handful of tailgate thefts around my area, and the last thing I need is driving around like a doofus without a tailgate. I have a 2010 Taco with a backup camera, but I can't find any tailgate locks for it. Any suggestions?

    check out the hose clamp mod or the pop and lock mod, or you could put a locking cover on?

    I thought so, but wasn't completely sure. I knew someone would come in and correct me. :thumbsup:

    True, I'm very happy with mine, good investment.

    O.P. search 'Hose clamp' or something like that, you can put a hose clamp over the notched side of the tailgate hinge; it's not fool proof but it will definitely slow/stop someone from just walking off with it (they'll need tools). Someone on here made a video of how quick he could 'jack' the tailgatge... it took him like 2 seconds to be off and out!
