Is there any way to add a lock to the Dakota tailgate? I installed a locking flush tonneau, but the tailgate can simply open, negating any sucurity offered by the cover.

I called a Dodge dealer and he said that Dodge does not make a lock for this tailgate and that many people call with the same question.

Is there an aftermarket solution?

I ended up buying a PE PowerGate solenoid from www.customdodgetruck.com

It was priced lower than a local truck accessories place (that would have had to order it anyway, and was about a 1/2 hour away). I usually like supporting local businesses but these guys are way overpriced on everything they sell.

I have power door locks already and wanted something with a clean install. I haven't had a chance to install it yet.

The tailgate should be the same, but I will report back after I have a chance to put it in (hopefully this coming week).

The package is marked "97 - C" (assuming C means "current"), so it should be fine.

The product looks good and the instructions seem clear -- so far, so good.
