Open and shut case of a great product and dealer
Delivery was super fast! Packaging was very protective. Installation was super easy thanks to the great video (no other dealer I found offered an online installation video). I think the whole job took less than 8 minutes and the tailgate works better than it ever has. My new source for replacement parts for my GMC Canyon. Thank you, 1A Auto!

Does this part include lock & keys?

BEST ANSWER: You will have to reuse the cylinder from the old handle. It is easy to remove and install on the new handle. You can order the handle either with or without provision for a cylinder.
Is this an aftermarket handle or OEM?
