    Comments about AutoCraft Tailgate Handle:

    I'll echo what "GI Jim" said. Original plastic mechanism got brittle and broke at the worst time, when I had a load of construction debris to shovel out of the pickup box. The mangled original was tricky to remove, but this new part of METAL, NOT PLASTIC, went in very easily. I balked at the price, but am now happy to have a tailgate that works again, with a 15 minute repair. One suggestion: include a couple 10 cent nuts. The originals were badly rusted and could have broken the bolts.

      Comments about AutoCraft Tailgate Handle:

      The original handle is made to fail. Engineering a plastic part that is exposed to so much torque on a regular basis is ridiculous. The metal handle is not nearly as stylish, but appears to be much more functional than the original.
