Excellent tailgate parts for 2002 Nissan Frontier Truck
LISTEN! My tailgate handle broke and the tailgate cables were almost rusted through, and ready to snap. Replacement parts provided by 1A AUTO are well built and were easy to install...well...the handle was a bit challenging but Im an exceptionally brilliant shade tree mechanic... Anyway...many thanks to the team for providing excellent replacement parts! 1A AUTO has been added to my short list of favorite parts providers and I eagerly look forward to the next time we do business! Many thanks again!

okay value
made at leas as well as Nissan originals, which lasted me 20 years. The rest of the truck will be gone some day and these cables will still be riding around by themselves.
