They turned out great. I know some here won't like it. But that's me, always doing the unexpected. Can't wait to get them and put them on the truck.

I really like the tailgate handles, but I have silver metallic. If and when you get some more interest for this color I would like one..

Do you have any DSGs left?
Not at the moment. I have 3 on the way. 1 already claimed. The other 2 are up for claiming. I also just finished some antenna bases in the other thread.👍

Any chance you could source a tailgate handle or two WITHOUT the key hole?
Good idea. Funny thing, after I took mine out of the stock handle and installed it in the new handle, it no longer works. Key won't turn all the way 90 degrees, only rotates 45 degrees. So I removed the little bent piece of metal off the lock cylinder and installed it. I have a hard bed cover that overlaps the tailgate, and it has a good lock on it. So it's still safe.

Thats odd. I have the same tailgate handle as these on my truck and dont have any issues.

Not saying it's the handles fault. Likely something happened to the lock cylinder. Don't know what though. It just doesn't work any longer. Tried lubing it, but somehow it just got mucked up. When I tried putting it back in the original handle, it still doesn't work.

Odd. Are you sure you are getting it locked back in the handle good so it doesnt rotate? Not sure if thats even possible though. Strange problem. Idk

Far as I know, it only fits one way.
