2008+ tailgate lock question

Hi guys,

I'm in urgent need of an answer to my issue. Will the tailgate lock cylinder/barrel from a 1999-2007 tailgate work in the 2008+ tailgate? I'm buying a used 2008 tailgate with no key and want to swap my lock into it. Is this possible? Thanks

He is asking if he can take the lock cylinder out of his old tailgate to put in the new 08 gate.

Answer-I don't know, but if you're handy with locks you can re-key the 08 lock to use your key. That's what I did.

I used the entire assembly from my old tailgate and swapped it into my 08 tailgate...
