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.

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!
