I have my tailgate back
January 24, 2017
Fast good price glad I went here. I started with another online parts order place and they were a pain to deal with they sent the wrong part and nothing but a hassle after that trying to get the right part so I gave up and came here. Got the right part fast and now I can use my tail gate again.
Good quality
February 13, 2017
The part arrived quickly and the video link was very helpful for me to install the part. My mechanics abilities are limited, so I very much appreciate how easy it was to fix this.

Fast prompt shipping. Cheapest price that I could find on-line. Beats buying the part at the local Auto dealer. Part was easy to install and looks and functions just like original factory part. Overall rating is 4.5 stars.

Ford Ranger Tailgate Handle
April 28, 2018
Tailgate handle worked perfectly and easy to install. Used 1A auto video to show how to install.
it was just what I needed
May 15, 2018
The tailgate handle on my ford Ranger broke, and these people had it. It was a perfect match, and there was a video showing just how to remove the old part and replace the new one, but really, the handle was so easy to put in, that I didn't need the video.
Works as advertized
May 27, 2018
I have a 1999 Ford Ranger. The original handle lasted until a few months ago. This replacement handle is mostly plastic, but so was the OEM one. Even if it only lasts half that time, it's still a great deal. I watched the video on YouTube, and I was done in about half an hour. The tailgate is now lubed up, and the new handle works great. It's an easy project that requires few tools. I would recommend this handle to others.
05' Ford Ranger tailgate handle
May 29, 2018
I had shopped around for the tailgate handle on a 05' Ford Ranger. Great price, delivered to the mailbox and it fit perfectly. Problem solved.
Easy install
June 8, 2018
The part installed incredibly easy. I recommend liberal use of WD40 followed by white lithium grease on all the moving parts. I waited way to long to do something that was very simple and easy
tailgate handle
June 12, 2018
The installation of this tailgate handle was super easy. The how-to video that went along with it made it a piece of cake!
Very Satisfied With Purchase
August 4, 2018
The main reason I purchase parts from 1A Auto is because they provide videos for many parts to show you how to install the part yourself. The part I received installed very easily. The only thing I noticed is that the handle is not exactly horizontal when I close the tailgate. That is because of the holes that the screws insert into are a little oversized. I just need to loosen the nuts and make sure I have the handle exactly horizontal before I tighten down the nuts.
Tailgate Handle
August 25, 2018
Everything went well for the install. The handle still has plastic parts but the handle is metal. It works --period.
simple fix to make life easier
August 29, 2018
The handle had broken off the tailgate so my son kept the panel screws loose and would reach in and work the latch by hand each time. For $17 bucks and 10 minutes of our time it was just like new again. Easy to replace, works perfectly. You never realize how often you open the tailgate until the handle is broken.
Correct and quick shipping

March 11, 2019
Easy install because the part fit perfect. Small delay on arriving, one day, just because the post office here in our small town is going thru some personal changes and are short handed not 1A Auto fault. Very pleased. Second time to use 1AAuto there will be a third

Looks and works just like the original
August 12, 2019
Looks and works just like the original. Installation is easy after watching A! video. I wouldn't hesitate buying agaian to recommending to a friend. (While within the stated delivery window, my only complaint is how long it took to deliver 160 miles away and within the same state.)

Tailgate handle.
October 26, 2019
Recently purchased tailgate handle. Tracked shipment and when arrived was emailed promptly with a video instructing how to install. It took about 10 minutes to install and works perfect again. I would buy from 1a auto again. Great experience.
Great purchase.
November 29, 2019
Lightning fast delivery; product is perfect fit. The only downside is that the installation video (for a 2004 vehicle) did not accurately show the actual installation for my vehicle (a 2003). Will definitely keep 1A on my supplier list for auto parts.

They had what I needed, at a good price. They delivered it ahead of the predicted delivery date. It's exactly what I expected, fit perfectly, works and seems at least as solid as the OEM part. Aside from this purchase - their how to videos are indispensable.

2010 Ford Ranger Tailgate Handle Replacement

You can save yourself quite a bit of money by doing this replacement yourself rather than at the dealers. Fit and finish of product is excellent. I had done some of the disassembly while waiting for my part to arrive. Total time spent was under 30 minutes. Watch a couple of videos and you got this!
