2011 Tailgate lock question - tied to keyless from factory?

I did a search and I think the answer is I'll need to install a dynolock to get what I want, but I just wanted to ask if the 2011 F-150 tailgate locks are tied to the keyless entry. I don't recall it unlocking with the keyless entry when I checked out the truck at the dealer. My new truck is on order so I figure I'd start getting the mod list ready now (its never to early, is it?) Thanks in advance!

It should NOT be tied into the factory keyless system...if it is, then I'm shocked.

Most guys get the aftermarket bit and run it to the relay for the back door(s).

The lock on the 11 tailgate is a key only lock.

Thanks guys! Put a dynolock in my last truck and thought it was well worth it. Think I'll do it again.

I just bought a newer tailgate with step and camera for my 07. Never thought of an electric lock. Thanks for the idea.

If you take pics of the electric lock, I'd appreciate it. I havent seen a writeup for one. I was really hoping that I could find one that toggle the key lock (so the key and actuator would be turning the same guts) but in what I found so far, he electric one doesnt work that way.

I saw a few postings on other forums about the lock install - some with pics.

I just ordered PopNLock's actuator kit (PL8250) which after calling their customer service, they said will fit on my 2011 with the camera. Guess I'll take plenty of pics when I install it. The price looks to be normally $105 and I got it for 78+tax+free shipping from amazon. Theres plently of guys who made their own with a $5 actuator and some supplies from home depot...but I'd rather spend the extra on a kit then leave it up to me to poke holes in my new truck.

I'll report back.
