Thanks for the one pic that is left. That's the one I needed to see for my 98. I plan on making my own based off that pic. I have a tri-fold tonneau so with the tail gate locked it should make what's in the bed semi secure as long as they don't cut the cover. And not having my tail gate stolen is also a bonus.I did this mod over 4 yrs ago and so far haven't had any problems. Something Nissan should of thought of but it's been great not having to lock and unlock the tailgate with a key.
Remote Tailgate Lock
EDIT: Something got screwed up with the thread, there use to be pictures of the install. I still have some, if you're interested.
Thanks Wayfarer! i have been looking for a tailgate damper solution!! and i'm wanting to do the power lock mod for the tailgate as well.. i just got my BAKFLIP HD installed so, like you, i wanna get it operated from my key fob! just have to find the time to do it! or find someone who can do it for me!Just reading this thread because I want to do this mod on my 2010 Crew Cab. I've got a bakflip cover on it and the tailgate's the only time I use the key to get in anywhere. This will make it alot easier. To answer your question, fierari, I've got a Dee Zee EZ down on mine and it works great.
