To refine that one step further, turn the hose clamp around, so the end of the clamp that you turn to tighten is facing the truck bed. Get one with a hex head, and you can use a small wrench to get the final tightening, and have it good and snug up against the truck.
oldbill123, there is an aftermarket tailgate handle that has a built in lock. It took me about an hour to swap. Mine has the back-up camera, and the replacement maintains the camera, just moves it to the other end of the handle.
When I travel to the valley (Walmart, etc), I lock the handle, then back up as close as I can to the bollard, using my camera as a guide (wheelchair spots have that bollard at the back).

The problem is that's the lamp
The piece of trim that snaps onto the bottom of the mirror and holds the lamp is what isn't sold separately
If you can picture a black piece of plastic in th shape of the mirror with a hole in I that holds that lamp...that's what isn't sold separstely

I would contact the email seller and see what he says. Here is a cover but it is probably not for your mirror:

and hey, it's scratched in exactly the same spot as the one that got stolen!
I have my own style of humor. I call it Snarkasm.

I appreciate all the help. If you look at the third picture in that eBay link that is basically the piece that's gone...except mine has a hole in for the lamp to mount on
This time of year is always crazy busy for us, so I just haven't had time to take to a salvage yard, get out my tools and go wandering....probably won't get that far til spring, honestly
I do really appreciate all the help and support you guys have offered
That happened to a dealer that parks spare inventory in the parking garage where my wife works. A bunch of Buicks had their wheels stolen. Thieves didn't even use blocks, they put a bunch of rocks under the cars
Had a nice, but well-travelled TrailBlazer. Didn't worry overmuch about thieves. Was careful about parking, but not crazy. Now I have a nice, two-year-old, low-mileage Jeep. Now I worry. I worry that somebody'll steal stuff from or off it. I worry about door dings and shopping carts.

Back in the late 70's a guy I worked with had the dream payback occur when someone broke the drivers side door window to reach into his window-less van to grab a case of tapes. Sitting in the back was his dog, a wolf-hybrid from Alaska. Blood was spilt all over the drivers seat, on the door, and on the concrete of the Northgate Shopping Mall parking lot.
If only this happened more often.

I started doing this a couple of years ago after watching a YouTube video of a guy walking off with a full size tailgate with camera in about 30 seconds. Lock that bad boy too.

This is why I run two vehicles. My DD, nobody pays it any mind whatsoever. I can park it anywhere, not worry at all. Have one cheap one to drive everyday, and then get your nice deal for the weekend. With both, both will last longer than one so it pays for itself or themselves, whatever, I think you get what I’m trying to say. My weekend ride, I park only where I don’t have to worry.
We don't sell no g damned trout. T-bone steaks.
We live in a real quiet town here in NJ next to a private college. Never any problems- except one year. Seems to be a rash of driveway car break-ins where change and loose items were being liberated from the cars.
Being a printer at the time, I always seem to have a lot of loose single edge razor blades that just happened to find their way into my change holder. Nothing spectacular, but I'm comfortable with the situation. One morning I get into the car and notice LOTS of blood all over the dash, car seat, emergency brake and OUTSIDE the car.
Seems the break-ins stopped after that
