I did some searching and didn't find anything.

If you buy this option after you get your truck, how do you "program" the lock to your factory keys? is that done by the dealer or something on the lock you setup before you install it?

I want to buy one off ebay before I get a tonneau cover for extra level of protection of sorts.

thanks
:D

The first time you put your truck key in it,it will set it's self to your keys.
:word: They come with instructions, but as stated all you have to do is stick your key in it and turn it and it keys itself....very simple install.

I hope your gonna have the new lockable one smoothed/painted first :read:

Yeah I didn't even think about that too.

It will be painted. Just gotta get another items painted too.

If I don't have the lock, could I just get the bezel and the cylinder? Or do I need the handle too? And if I don't need the handle, where can I get just the cylinder?

apart from stealing the taillights , why the heck would someone install this ?
People steal tailgates and tail lights ALL the time in every city....$50 is a good investment :imo

I believe it all comes in a kit. Just buy the new kit and send that out for paint, then when its painted just swap everything out for yours and sell your non-locking setup.
