Don't vote Democrat.
Have a broken tailgate handle on the new truck. It's plastic, can the metal handles be swapped out in place of the crappy plastic ones? If so what all do I need to do it right?

Conversely, can an F150 locking tailgate handle be swapped in? Has anyone done this?

yes, metal handles are available. Don't know about the f-150 will interchange.

If you're not making mistakes, you're not learning.
No idea if they'll swap, but I have a metal generic Autozone replacement on mine. Been on there for years and still seems to work fine.
