The original handle broke so I ordered this handle as a replacement and it fit correctly. I found that one of the reasons that it broke was that the moving parts, the part that engages on either side etc. must be lubed or you put too much pressure on the handle and it breaks. The part fit correctly and looks great. Only about a 15 to 30 min project to install.

Part was an excellent fit. Installation was smooth and easy. Hardest part was removal of old handle as the plastic around one of the mounting bolts had broken.

Perfect fit for my 2006 Tundra
I was hesitant to purchase anything on line without holding it in my hand at a store, but after asking what Toyota would charge me, I decided to go for it. A-1 Auto cost was low, value appeared great, and installation of tailgate handle was not complicated after I watched an On Line Video. Very satisfied with my product; it is working just super, and probably saved me $ 150 bucks had I purchased it from Toyota.

Better than a Junkyard
A friend asked why I didnt go get what I needed from a junkyard. I had already ordered the latch and thought I had made a mistake. Now I realize there is no way I couldve beat this price and quality if Id gotten something used someplace else. Not sure how much the yard wouldve charged me, but it couldnt have been much less than I paid here. It arrived exactly when they said it would and it went in with no trouble at all. Ill be buying parts from here again if I need any in the future.

Tailgate Latch for 2001 Tundra
The latch filled the bill and looks very smart on the vehicle. Just one observation, in that the clip holding the lock tumbler does not seem aggressive enough to keep it from wobbling when in place. Lock functions but moves around a bit. I will continue to use 1A for my parts. I trust the way they do business.

Best $30 ever spent
I ordered this tailgate latch based on the you tube video I saw telling me how to replace the tailgate latch and it was just like they said. Everything fit and worked perfect and the instructions were spot on. I would not hesitate to order again from A1. So glad I didnt go to the dealers especially since the truck is 13 years old!

Tailgate handle latch
The tailgate handle fits perfect! It was the exact same as my original part. They even had a video on how to take the old one off and put new one on. Better to pay 1A Auto prices than Toyotas inflated prices. I would recommend this product to others.

2002 Tundra Tailgate handle
Arrived very fast, had it installed in a few minutes and it worked perfectly. 1A Autos video also helped a lot. As a side note I had to re-bend the existing linkage arms a bit to tighten the mechanism so the gate would open smoothly, but that was not a failing of the handle. It was the result of 16 years of opening and closing the tailgate.

Customer Q&A
Ask a question to 1A Auto customers who purchased the product
Do your have the locks that the handle controls on the tailgate?
Randy B June 28, 2016
Randy - 1A Auto sent me your question because I recently replaced my Tundra tailgate handle. I was not replacing the lock cylinder - I just swapped it with the new handle. If you are looking for a lock - you may have to go to a local junkyard or Toyota for a replacement lock cylinder. If you dont know how to key a lock, going to Toyota makes more sense because you should get a key with the cylinder. Hope this helps. Mark A.
