    Manufacture error

    Comments about AutoCraft Tailgate Handle:

    Ordered part on line and got the wifey to pick up on the way home. Great ordering and pick up process and saved 15% to boot. When I got the handle, however, I found it only had one installation bolt instead of two. I don't blame Advance for this unless they are required to check stuff out before stocking. Cost me an additional trip to different store (I got the last one from the first store). Second part was good to go and was an exact fit. Sooo, if your going to buy soon, check to make sure it has both bolts. I gave average rating cause I didn't really know how much fault to give Advance.

      Very pleasant transaction from start to finish! I placed the order online while traveling and picked it up in the next town. I watched a Youtube video of the installation that described the tools needed. I installed it it 10 minutes and was ready to roll.

          Comments about AutoCraft Tailgate Handle:

          The handle fit perfectly and was extremely easy to install in the vehicle once the tailgate was disassembled and the old handle removed. I've used the handle after installation and it continues to operate flawlessly everytime. I had purchased a replacement handle previously that was touted as an exact replacement from another retailer and although it also fit perfectly, was easy to install and looked nice, it didn't last even 1 year. We have opened and closed the tailgate on the truck about 50 times since install and the handle continues to operate flawlessly.

            Would like this to be more durable for the money. Went to install and one of the two installation bolts that I was screwing a nut to came loose (It is glued in place). This occurred when I was just about done tightening it.

              It depends on what you want. I had to replace mine because it was plastic, and the previous owner was too rough on it. If you're looking for durability, get the metal one. I went with this one because it was half the price and I'm not going to be too rough on it.
