Ive had some guys request some other parts to get painted and figured i would go ahead and ask since im gona be doing some when i get them. How many people would like a paint matched tailgate handle? I can do 75 dollars shipped. These are NOT OEM tailgate handles. I have UA/black, YZ/Oxford white, and CX/dsg paint. Let me know who all is ready and what color so i know if i need to order anymore tailgate handles. If you have any questions just PM me. Thank you.
Also if there is enough interest for another color i can get other colors. But it will have to be enough to justifiy buying more paint. Also i can not guarentee a perfect color match as im just purchasing stock color mixed paints.

Alright for the guys that have said they want one i got some in today and ran out and test fitted it on my truck real quick. It does fit pretty good. Is it oem fit, no? But i feel like its a pretty decent part for the price and fits well enough, i doubt anyone would ever know it wasnt oem unless you told them. It does also feel pretty rigid. Here some pics. Please excuse how dirty my truck is. Lol

Like we discussed via text, I'll take one of those in Oxford White. Looks like it fits good enough, since it'll be painted.

Mine just snapped on my 02 HD the other day so I had to get a new one quickly via Amazon Prime. It was the black smooth one from Dorman. It fits perfect but I can definitely tell the color difference against the tailgate.

Wld you like me to paint you one to replace it? I considered the dorman part but the reviews on it and most others i have found are all slightly less than stellar so to say.

Wow I never heard that about the Dorman handle,but I’m good for now. I need to get this truck finished and tuned so I can start on my Lightning. I appreciate the offer and will definitely keep it in mind. Painted 97/98 smooth window surrounds would be another great idea,but a lot of work.

No rush pal. Once everyone pays, it's easier for you to make only one trip to ship them all.
