    Here's a hopefully simple question. Did ya'lls tacos come with a remote lock on the tailgate? Or do you have to get an after market remote lock?

    Generally aftermarket from Pop n Lock or Dyno Lock.

    I've been watching some YouTube videos on the Pop n Lock installs. Looks pretty straightforward. Takes about 30 minutes.

    I saw a few yesterday, 90 bucks isn't a bad deal at all. I'm shocked it didn't come with it

    Good Morning all. I live in Southern California and this morning I had the pleasure of watching the neighbors gardener walk over to check if my tailgate was locked and to make sure that I still had my spare tire. What a nice gesture..... Right? (I wonder why he didn't stick around when I went out to thank him) Anyway, I went out and got a lock for my spare but was wondering if anyone had any insight on which is the most secure tailgate lock. I know with enough time they can all be circumvented but what will slow them down the most?

    You have to get an aftermarket. Look at the pop and lock.
    No Tacoma has came with an automatic tailgate lock unless it was installed aftermarket.

    Pop n lock is legit. Easily one of the best mod I did on the truck, hands down period.

    Was that question for me? I guess the dealer installed it. The salesman made it seem like it was standard equipment.

    No question.
    I don’t know why Toyota doesn’t put them standard. That’s awesome if your dealer did.
