Video Transcript for Pop and Lock Vehicle Locks - Tailgate Lock - PAL8350 Review

Today we're going to review Part Number PAL8350. This is the Pop & Lock custom power tailgate lock. This is a custom fit part number, it is designed to fit the Dodge Ram new body style starting in 2009. What I would recommend on any custom fit product is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model vehicle and it will show you if this will work for your application. This part includes everything shown here on the table. It includes the power lock itself, it includes the short wiring cable, the long wiring cable, the relay wiring cable, some quick splice connector taps and some cable ties, and a nice set of detailed instructions for installation. This power tailgate lock will discourage theft of your cargo and your tailgate. It creates a secure storage space for your valuables when you use this with a tonneau cover or a camper shell.

It will work with your factory power lock system so that it locks and unlocks using your remote keyless entry, so you don't have to have any extra keys to weigh down your key chain. This is made of a nice corrosion resistant stainless steel, and see, there's the actuator that would open and close. This is customized to fit your vehicle, and it integrates into your OEM tailgate handle. This will mount inside your existing factory handle mechanism, so it resists tampering. This does install with some basic tools. It does wire into your vehicle's power lock system using these quick splice connectors.

Now if you have locks and they're not power locks, you can still use this, but you do have to purchase a wiring switch kit which we sell separately on our website, it's Part Number PAL9520, that's if your truck does not have power locks, and it is listed on this product page as a related product. Again, it includes everything shown here on the table. But that should do it for the review on Part Number PAL8350, the Pop & Lock custom power tailgate lock. .

2012 Ram 1500


I have a 2012 Ram 1500 crew cab 4x4 Bought this for the security and convenience. Install was pretty simple. There's an online video but it's 4 years old and there is no longer a relay but the rest is true...just run the large harness wires inside the vehicle. The base mounting plate that fits over the two bolts at the tailgate handle didn't line up...just spread the "feet" a lil til it lined up and installed the nuts. I ran the wires through the same hole as my back up camera and through the same protector plate in the body of the truck to make it seamless. Zip tie every 8 inches or so...I used a lot more zip ties than those provided...get a bag..they're cheap and you will use them! I wrapped the long harness in the wire loom as I had some...I do recommend! I ran the wire harness with the plug down from by my firewall towards the ground instead of trying to feed up from the bottom as I was by myself. I had an amp put in so I used the same hole as the power wire to the amp through the firewall. There is a "spongy" plug that will lead right behind the dash on my truck. I pulled off the kick panel/step guard to expose the insulation hiding the wires. Two push pins to pop out...not as easy as you would think...but once I got them out the harness was attached to the side of the body. There's a "y" of wires the wires the directions said to use were tan/white and tan/green. I spliced the green wire from the pop & lock to the tan/white and blue to tan/green. when I hooked the harness together and tried it it worked perfectly but on the driver door lock so one push of the remote button unlocked the driver door and tailgate...no big deal to me but you may want to try the other wires to work off the passenger doors or two pushes of the remote? Once I was sure everything worked right I started to map out running the wires...this is not as straight forward as it may seem. There are many "clips" holding in the brake lines and I securely but not so hard to move the lines attached the wire to them running along the frame as much as possible. the tricky part was where the long gas tank sits from about midway of the rear driver door to the rear wheel well. I tried going over the top of the gas tank...NO GOOD! Went back to the brake lines and the frame and with a lot of cussing and many trys I was able to get the zip ties over and back to be able to secure in that very tight of spaces along the frame. Save the long zip ties for the area around the rear wheel. There is a mounting plate for the lines and it rides up on the wheel arch so having a lil longer zip tie makes a big difference in being able to hold the wire in place and grab the tie and feed it so you can tighten it! I had a little wire left from both pieces so I just doubled it against itself and zip tied it to the electrical harness wires to the brake lights and such making sure to leave the clip area open so if I ever need to disconnect I don't have to cut the zip tie 605589

Installed this kit on my 2012 Dodge Ram 1500. The kit contained everything I needed to complete the install. There is one small probelm with my particular year and model truck. The instructions explain to use 1 of two possible wire sets. Neither one of the two options (wire colors) are present in the harness. I ended up taking the door card off and check for wire colors on the lock actuator. I, then, tapped into the wires in the main harness and all was good. I used the wire pair for the rear driver side door which means that the tail gate will only unlock when you push the unlock button twice. I did that on purpose but one could easily find the wires for the front door actuators. All in all a very easy install and I love it. 582904

High quality wire in protective casing. Plenty of wire to get to the front of the truck to tie into the factory wiring by the drivers feet. Unit installs very quickly and is very straight forward. It is nice to know that the bed is locked when the cab is locked. No more wondering if I remembered to lock the tailgate with the key. 314264

I have not had a chance to install it yet due to sickness. I have looked at the product and it looks like a good item. As soon as I can get it installed I will be glad to give further information. I do want to apologize for not getting it installed sooner after etrailer went to the extra trouble to get it to me as fast as they did. It is a very good company to buy from. Thanks Art Bennett. 112750


Comments

I can however saw that it is a very good product because I have had one on another truck before and loved it. Thanks for asking.

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • For your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 we have two option styles for a tailgate lock. We have the electric power lock style part # PAL8350 that will lock the handle of the manual style part # PAL9900 that locks the tailgate to the truck. If the goal is to lock the tailgate handle the only option is the electric part # PAL8350 which I attached an install video for since the other options all lock the tailgate to the truck.

  • Wire Colors on 2012 Ram 1500 for Installing Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8350
  • When installing the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock # PAL8350 on your 2012 Ram 1500 Crew Cab you will need to locate the tan/white stripe and tan/green stripe wires in the driver side kick panel. These wires will be part of a larger harness so you will likely need to pull them free. I have attached an installation video on the 2012 Ram that you can use for reference.

  • If you want a roll up cover then the Extang Revolution, # EX54430, would be a great choice. Of all of the roll up style covers this one would be my first choice. It is low profile installs easy and rolls up and unrolls easily. We have a video review of the features of this cover. If given the choice I would go with the Extang EnCore folding cover, # EX62430, we have a video of this cover that we did on a Dodge for you to review.

  • If the latch on your 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 is the older style like the one in the picture that I have attached then yes, the Pop and Lock Custom Tailgate Lock, # PAL3400, will work for you. If your truck has the newer style latch, we offer the Pop and Lock Custom Powered Tailgate Lock, # PAL8350. This lock wires into the existing power door locks on your truck and the tailgate will now lock and unlock with the doors. If your Ram didn't come equipped with power locks, you will need to add...

  • Will the Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock Install on a 2012 Dodge Ram with Factory Keyed Tailgate Lock
  • I spoke with my contact at Pop and Lock and found that the Custom Tailgate Lock, # PAL8350, will work with your current tailgate handle that has a factory keyed lock on your 2012 Dodge Ram. The power lock installs with your current lock allowing you to use your factory power lock system to lock and unlock your tailgate.

  • Recommended Power Lock System For 2009 Dodge Ram Tailgate Lock
  • For your 2009 Dodge Ram, the Integrated OEM Tailgate Lock # LH-007 is a fit for only 2500 and 3500 series quad cab trucks. For a 1500 series option, I recommend the Pop & Lock Custom Tailgate Lock - Power - Black, # PAL8350. This system works with your factory power lock system, so it locks and unlocks using remote keyless entry. If you have a 1500 series with a crew cab, you will need the extention harness # PL9510 for this kit. If you have a 2500 or 3500 series without the crew...

  • Best Tonneau Cover to Protect 5th Wheel Hitch on a 2014 Ram 2500 Short Bed
  • Thank you for your purchase of the Curt A16 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch part # C16521. In order to protect this hitch I recommend using the BAK Revolver X2 Hard Tonneau Cover part # BAK39213. The reason for this is that this is a very strong and durable tonneau cover. It is constructed of 1/4" thick rustproof aluminum slats and has a low profile appearance for a sleek look. It offers a no-drill installation and comes with a three year warranty. The Revolver X2 is one of our most popular...

  • Tailgate Lock and BAK G2 Tonneau Cover for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The 2009 Ram 1500 and the 2500 and 3500 models where not all updated at the same time so 1500 tailgate is not the same so # LH-007 will not fit. For a 2009 1500 that is not a Quad Cab with an 8 foot bed you can use # PAL8350. For a model that is a Quad Cab with 8 foot bed you can use # PAL8350-PL9510. If your truck has a 5-1/2 foot bed and the RamBox feature then the BAK G2 Tonneau cover you need is # BAK26207RB. If it has the 5-1/2 foot bed without the RamBox feature then use # BAK26207. If...

  • 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.

  • Remote Activated Power Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram
  • If you have a 2500 or 3500 2009 Dodge Ram yes, the Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock part # PAL8340 would work well for you, if you had a 1500 you would instead want the part # PAL8350. Either kit does not require that your tailgate have the factory lock in the lever. If you check out the install video I attached you will see that we installed this on a tailgate without the locks.

  • How to Designate a 2009 Dodge Ram From a 2009.5 Dodge Ram For a Pop and Lock Tailgate Lock
  • The Pop and Lock # PAL8350 that you are referencing will fit either version of the 2009 Ram. I have found that if your 2009 Dodge Ram was built after March 4, 2009, it is considered a .5, however, for a definite answer, the easiest way is to call your local Dodge dealer with your VIN. In my research, I have found that the differentiators between the 2009 and 2009.5 are all across the board ranging from the internal computer upgrades to the Dodge branding to the physical structure...

  • Tailgate Lock Recommendation for a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500
  • I have a solution for you, but the Tailgate Lock part # LH-007 that you referenced will only fit the 2009 2500 and 3500 trucks. For your 1500 you would instead need the part # PAL8350. The reason for this is that the 1500 trucks had a generation change in 2009 and the 2500 and 3500 were a year behind in the change.
