Tail gate locking mech

Dose anyone happen to have an old locking mech for there tailgate? I was working on my locks today and have managed to get both door locks working. But couldn't manage to get my tailgate lock to work. The thing that connects the key cylinder to the rod that locks/unlocks the door. This is bugging the crap out of me because I've got the insta truck box kit, but its pointless if the tailgate dose not lock.

You just need the little plastic piece that clips the rod into the end of the cylinder?

I have the clips from my old door handles in hand this moment. If I remember right the rods are all the same diameter, and the same type of fastener. If you want them, you can send me a private message and I'll send them out to you Monday.

Got the PM.....I'll get them sent out Monday morning! I hope they work. I'll send two one from the right door and one from the left, because I'm not sure which way it will have to swing. One or the other should do the job. Glad I could help!

Yea mam, yesterday was not a good day for me to check the mail. on top of this. I finally got a package I had ordered from ebay for some screen protectors for my droid x. I open the package and I have 12 screen protectors for a completely different phone. On the good side tho I finally got my windshield bolts in and a letter from my cousin that just joined the army. So that was good. Thanks again for the effort tho!
