2003 Dodge Ram Pickup

I installed it in about a minute on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500. Works great and would recommend this product. There is no way to pull it off once it's locked in, you would have to take the access cover off the tailgate. The only thing you have to do after you install it is to take a flat head screwdriver to pick up the lock a little bit to get the tape off. I would recommend tweezers to peal it off.

So far it works great. I would be interested in a remote operated electric lock tailgate lick with a backup camera if available for a 2006 Dodge Ram pickup.

2004 Dodge Ram Pickup

I bought a til gate lock and a bed mat for my Ram 1500, I have found a perfect place for my truck I recommend Etrailer to anybody who has a pick up truck

- PAL3400

The lock fits and works perfectly. The only issue I have is that the instructions say to fit the lock, the remove the covering to the adhesive strip on the back. The problem is when you fit the lock you cannot get the strip off the back of the adhesive pad and the lock will not back out. Take the Adhesive off first. Otherwise, a fantastic product. I have already recommended this to another Dodge owner.

  • Tailgate Lock for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab without Locking Handle
    The 2009 model year of the Dodge Ram 1500 was a split year. Some models had the 2008 tail gate handle, like in the picture, and some had the 2010. Tailgate lock # PAL8350 fits the newer models. For the older models you would use # PAL3400. The tailgate would have to have a manual lock for # PAL8350 to work.
