tailgate handle
A "friend" borrowed my truck and returned it with a broke tailgate handle... I priced repairing it with the dealer... not so cheap! Ive been manually opening the tailgate by pulling the rods through the access opening. After finding your website and watching the installation video, I ordered the part. Installation took about 15 minutes. Works perfect; Identical to original part; and I saved $100+ without going to the dealer and waiting hours to have them do the repair!

Tailgate latch
I was surprised and pleased to see that you carried the tailgate latch I was needing. Your shipment was prompt and received it in a few days. You Tube was very helpful with installation instructions and item was easy to install. Very pleased with result. Will recommend you. Mike H.

$100 dollars less than dealer
2001 Frontier tailgate handle fit well and works perfect. The lever only repair would not have worked, the push in mounting pins broke on removal, so the entire replacement was the only option. NOTE: The original handle assembly had the "NISSAN" logo printed into the plastic and the new on has a spot for a small chrome logo that is not included, ordered on off E-Bay for $10.00 so still a lot less spent.

Perfect fit tailgate handle
I opted to get the complete tailgate handle assembly because of 2 reasons. 1) I didnt want to fuss with installing just the handle. 2) when removing the original, three tabs broke off so I would have needed a new plastic housing anyway. Perfect fit, installed in minutes (after getting the bed liner off). Thanks again 1A Auto for the awesome videos for us DIYers. Not my first purchase from you guys and certainly wont be my last. :) Oh, and did I mention the price?!? MUCH cheaper than other sites for the same product. Shipping was fast (just a few days) too!

It was fairly easy to install
The handle & bezel set were great, but did not include new hardware (bolts), so I had to use the existing hardware. This would have been ok except that someone had worked on this handle prior to me and had apparently lost some hardware along the way. Their jury-rigged solution was pretty ugly, and I had to come up with my own hardware to fix it right. Of course this made the whole project harder than it should have been...but the end result works great. By the way, I used 1A Autos Youtube video to walk me through it; it was a terrific help!

Tailgate Handle and Bezel Set
Item arrived on time as promised and fit perfect, only reason for 4 stars is the Bezel Set had a blemish on the face, small bubble I guess in the mold.
