Tailgate handle
I liked the handle cause it was an exact fit for my truck as described by the seller and would recommend it to anyone with the problem I was having with mine.

ranger Tailgate Handle
This was the first car part I have ever ordered online and the first attempt at fixing an auto/truck issue myself. The person on the phone knew exactly what I wanted and made it so easy to order that I will use them again if I have further issues with my truck. Their service was excellent and the product arrived exactly when she said it would. I highly recommend 1A Auto!

Tailgate handle
Easy to install. Works just like original one. Can't think of anything else. Just trying to fill 50 character requirement now.

Good buy!
Went on very easily, lubed things up while I was at it and now opening and closing tailgate is effortless. With free shipping, this was a no brainer.
