    Had both the bed lights and the Pop N Lock for almost a year. Finally had some free time and got both done. Thank you for the write up! Saved me some time.

    Note to self, if I ever have to do this again, make sure to either do it before I drive the truck through mud or make sure all of it is washed off before under the truck. Holy crap I came out looking like Arnold in the Predator after I was done. Dirt falling in your face while you’re trying to run cable is no fun.

    Anyone’s pop & lock freezing up? Mine will fail to unlock I’ve noticed when it gets a little chilly. I’m in Texas so nothing crazy about these temperatures to cause failure. Anyone notice theirs doing the same?

    A while back , I just happened to try to open the tailgate while it was locked. To my surprise it opened. The solenoid sounded like it was working but it wasn't. I gave it a good spray down with silicone spray and all was right again. :thumbsup:
