Do F150 Tailgates Have Locks

Recommended Posts

I recall a few years ago when there were a series of F150 tailgate thefts in my neighborhood ! I was wondering if it is still easy to steal F150 tailgates or did Ford resolve the problem?

Mine locks with the doors so yes that problem is fixed.

Great to hear that....and I assume that's not an option package!

The base XL with manual locks has a manual tailgate lock but all others have power locking so yes, some type of lock is standard now.

Where do you think they got all those tailgates in the new GMC commercial?    HRG

I had not had a truck for about 10 years, was surprised on my recently purchased 2016 Lariat that pushing a button on the key fob would open then tailgate. Amazing and nice.

I can understand that frustration. A few years ago we used to just back the trucks on the lot bumper to bumper to keep tailgates from being stolen. Even with the manual locking gate, they would be left unlocked. The electric lock is nice. Plus the keypad will unlock it Incase you leave the keys in the house. I’m very much a key pad fan.

The only people who don't like the keypad are people who have never used the keypad.

I like the keypad feature, use a lot when hunting always afraid of losing keys when in the field.
