Default rear tailgate/window lock

Okay so I took the saturday to go fishing up in Ramapo, NJ. I went a bait shop and when I went back to my truck, I found out i locked my keys in. I ended up breaking the rear tailgate lock. The one that opens the window and the tailgate. I was wondering if anyone knows how I can go about replacing the lock, where i can get one, and how to do it. all the advice will be appreciated. thanks

IIRC the lock is in the handle, so remove the trim, remove the handle and go see your neighborhood locksmith. Be sure to give him your key so he can code the new lock to your key.

next time just bust the pass window, a little unorthodox but the junkyard replacement was 50-75 bucks and the install is a breeze. i call it christening the truck.
