Anyone had the problem of their tailgate being stolen? Had a friend that just purchased a new truck and he is going to have a lock put on the tailgate because dealer told him many are stolen. We have never heard of this before.

Had mine stolen the week I got back from So. The thief can't use, because he broke off the part that fit in round bracket that holds left side. HA-HA! Mine was my 5th. wheel tailgate.

I've heard of that happening but have not had it happen to us. I put a bicycle cable lock through a slat on the gate and through a tiedown in the lower rear part of the bed on ours to deter theft.
