Worked but took some work
The handle worked just fine. The hinge cups were too deep. The tailgate rubbed the body work when I tried to install the tailgate. I cant see any problem with my bed to say it is tweaked or anything. It works for my work Truck but I would be mad if I had a nice truck

Nice to have a working tailgate again
This kit comes with everything but the rods and the actual spring latches. Rods are sold separately. Didnt need the spring latches. Completely rebuilt my tailgate on my 98 Silverado in a very short time. works as well as new.
