    For your 1997 Chevrolet C/K Series Pickup, I recommend using a power lock like part # PAL8100 if you have electric door locks or a manual lock part # PAL1050 if you do not have electric door locks. Both kits are very easy to install and come with everything you need.

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Dakota Crew Cab
    I have a solution for you, but the part # PAL1700 that you referenced will not fit a 2005 Dodge Dakota. For a similar tailgate lock you would want the part # PAL9900 which has been confirmed as a fit for your truck and would work well. Or if you wanted something that wires to your vehicle power locks you would want the part # PAL8100. This will unlock and lock with the power locks of your truck.

  • 2001 Dodge Dakota Pop & Lock PL8100 Wiring Installation
    I reached out to my contact at Pop & Lock to get the wiring colors for your # PAL8100 and your 2001 Dodge Dakota. My tech contact said that behind the driver's side kick panel there will be a gray wire and a tan wire leading to the door in a wiring harness. Those are the wires you will want to tap into and run the wire from to your tailgate. Then you will want to check the phasing because if they are mismatched you will unlock when you want to lock and vice versa.
