I recently purchased a cover for 03 short bed Rc, and while at auto zone this weekend I saw a locking tail gate handle. Has anyone ever installed one. is it a pia to put on? does it work? is it easy to break in to?

I have this one handle .. wasn't too bad .. you had to take off the stock bezel (you dont reuse it) then take out one of the bolts on the backside of the tailgate. The lock mechanism hooks to the tailgate rods ... can you still get in? Sure, if someone wants in they will get in ... but it makes my bed much more secure .. only problem is I've had it stick a few times .. but squirting some WD40 in the key hole and working it a bit made it smooth right on up.
