Right parts, right away
1A-Auto had great instructional videos showing me how to fix my 2005 Jeep Liberty. The website is easy to use. And the parts are roughly 1/3rd the price of OEM parts from the dealer. Are they the same quality? Nope. But thanks to their installation videos I installed these parts myself in less than an hour while drinking beer. If I have to do it again, itll be even faster. 5/5 stars. Would do again.

Jeep Liftgate handle.
This handle was slightly different than our broken handle. With a little customizing we were able to make it work! It was a reasonably priced way to continue using our back hatch. Very happy with this product.
