07 Silverado Classic - Tailgate Lock

Recommended Posts

I just recently purchased a 2007 Silverado Classic from an older gentleman with 57k on it.  I just realized today that when i lock the doors the tailgate doesn't lock.  Is that normal?  Should it lock?

That is normal for that generation. Even the 2007-2013 newer body style did not have a power tailgate lock option.

 

2014+ is when that started...

 

Side note, with those wheels, is your truck the chrome appearance package or the performance edition?

Thanks.  I was surprised it didn't lock, just assumed it would.  I am pretty sure I saw on the sticker the performance edition.  Those are stock 20" wheels.

That means you have the high output 6.0L & front torsion bar suspension

Correction its not the performance package.  Its the Limited Edition package which includes 3.73 rear axle ration and 20" Chromed - Aluminum Wheels

Thanks i will check that out.  I do keep some misc. tools and such in there so i should probably get a locking handle.

Check out the GM tailgate lock accessory too. PN# 19211265

I added one to my 2004 GMC SLT with the VHO package, years back. It looked WAY better than the pop-lock handle, IMHO.
