You can have the lock rekeyed to your ignition key, thats what i did on my '08 tailgate. Another thing i added was a gatekeeper. Its just one more thing to help prevent tailgate theft. Some people make their own with a hose clamp but for $20 something dollars i think this is a good product.

This is a link to it, Tailgate Theft Prevention, get a Gate Keeper

Here it is on my truck,
