they design locking devices for door handles and tailgates. its a bracket that goes over the "rolling mechanism" for a lack of a better term and keeps the tailgate from being pulled out.

I keep mine locked as well, the thieves (Shi?-heads) love the F-250 with the backup cameras and steps. When I replaced mine I just got one with the camera and not the step as thought this may detour the thieves (Shi?-heads)from taking. Yeah, what's a Jimmijammer?

They stole mine last year and I don't have full coverage as the truck is paid off so I had to pay out of pocket.
$3,500 later I have one and I make sure it's locked ever night.

3500 for a tail gate? Damn. I dont have a camera but do have the step. I guess I better think about locking mine.

Tailgate Theft Prevention, get a Gate Keeper

Regular old hose clamp around that piece the tailgate slips into would probably work too.

just keep an eye on craigslist. you'll be able to buy it back for a few hundred bucks

they steal them left and right. Where else can a crack head make $500+ for 30 seconds of labor?
