Rear tailgate lock

Not sure where to post this question. Why doesn't the rear tailgate lock when you close it like a trunk on a car would and is there any way to change the latch to make it do it. I didn't get power locks for my 2 door jeep with a 4 foot reach over to lock and unlock the front doors. But the tailgate makes me nuts having to use the key to lock it. I will bet someone here has fixed this problem I hope.

Only reason to lock it is if you have an add a trunk or similar to keep items secure there... Otherwise just leave it unlocked. Nothing is secure in a vehicle....
