Probably a custom latch as it locks automatically because that door popping open would be a real road hazard if all your towing items fell out plus the door swung wide.

Yes if you could find a custom latch like that. The lock is the latch the plastic handle just protects the key/lock from road debris.

Re: Utility Compartment always locked?

What I always wished on the Titans was that they developed a hidden pull out/swing down box behind the quarter panel made of ABS. This way the metal wasn't compromised, you could (hopefully) make it roomier and it would be impervious to the elements, and could to some extent serve as a hidden place to stick stuff.
