    McGard 76029 Lock.jpg Tailgate Master lock.jpg :party36::party36::welcome::party36::party36: I used a simple worm type hose clamp to help secure my tailgate along with a handle lock. Nothing is fully secured, but these changes will sure slow a thief down. I have included some pictures of some tailgate locks.

    There a couple of places on Amazon that sell pre-painted aftermarket tailgates for under $600. Since yours was stolen you would also have to buy the handle and latches.
