Perfect and easy to install. I was hoping that it would come with the two mounting screws but it turns out I was able to use the old ones.

Great Value
The replacement tail gate handle was a perfect match. It fits and works superbly. Not only that, it cost only a fraction of what a Toyota dealer sold it for. Shipping was prompt and quality is good. I recommend 1A Auto.

Came sooner than I was expecting. Well made. Fit perfect. 1996 Toyota Tacoma 4x4.

Perfect fit
The handle slipped right in where the old one was. Removal of old handle, plus installation of new one took a total of 15 min. Seems to work as well as, or better than the old 2013 one.

Great service, price, ease of ordering
Have no complaints at all. Website must be almost idiot proof because both orders Ive placed were easy to find my products, also easy to place order online with a very responsive confirmation email of order. Delivery time by usps was as promised. I will definitely go back to them as the need arises. And of course the products are as stated and working fine
