Try pushing against the tailgate like if you were going to close it farther. Then try the latch. My 97 used to do that from time to time. You'll need to lubricate the latch, then adjust the mechanism. You'll have to remove the inside panel to get to the adjustment.

Farming is easy when your plow is a pencil and you are a thousand miles from the cornfield. -Dwight D. Eisenhower
Don't curse the farmer with your mouth full.
Ah, cows. A thousand roast beef sandwiches wrapped in a gorgeous leather coat.
