Minor problem
The handle was just as advertised and fit perfectly. The only problem I ran into was that the two plastic clips designed to hold the tailgate opening rods were too weak to hold the rods. I just switched the ones off the original equipment and everything worked fine. 1A Auto actually offered to send me an entire new handle but I declined as I had it working. As usual, super job 1A Auto!

can i use my lock?
david b on May 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, lock stays the same. But, when installing it, you need to cut some of the fiberglass. I learned that on the first one I replaced. This is #3. After removing cover via 3 T screws, you'll see the mechanism. Easy to replace but take off approx 1" of the fiberglass tab that it sits behind.
