This GM part seems to be the only option if you want a codeable lock. It's more expensive than the after market stuff but you're guaranteed a good fit and it'll look like it belongs there. Plus, I saw people mention several issues with fit with the others.
The instructions for removing the old latch and setting the lock are fine but the install instructions are either backwards or just wrong. You have to make sure the metal things the rods attach to are in the right position (for mine, that meant figuring out that I had to pop one of the metal arms into place to ensure the rods could reach the hole). You have to attach the latch rods BEFORE you pop in the bezel (cover w/ the handle). It also says to ensure the housing for the lock is in the right positon AFTER you install it. No. The housing moves up and down but will stay in the position that you leave it in. You have to ensure the housing is horizontal to the ground (not at an angle) BEFORE you install the bezel w/...
Easy to install everything lined up perfect . Original key coded with no problem. If you don't have a bed liner would take about 5 minutes to install.
This took me about 45 minutes to install as I had to first remove the GM tailgate liner before I could install the locking tailgate latch. And then I had to re-install the tailgate liner.
It was really easy to install the unit and then to code the lock to my existing truck key!
The instructions are wrong in one place (another reviewer has pointed this out). The steps are out of sequence in the section of the instructions titled, "Installation of New Endgate Handle with Lock". In that section, perform step #3 BEFORE doing step #2.
If you read through the directions first it should all make sense.
