Whether your tailgate handle is the only blot of black plastic that has to be banished, or your truck is plagued with the stuff , we have the chrome tailgate handles to make things right. Your new handle can be the finishing touch for your truck that the factory left off, or part of a complete truck styling makeover that includes chrome mirrors, tailgate trim, fender trim, light bezels, and more. And you have several options for installation.

We offer both chrome covers and complete chrome replacement handles. The cover is an overlay that fits over your existing handle assembly, while the replacement handle is identical to your factory handle in every respect except for the exquisite chrome plating. A cover is the fastest way to a resplendent tailgate. It’s made of chrome plated automotive grade ABS plastic or stainless steel and attaches to your existing handle with 3M acrylic foam tape, the same adhesive used by the OEMs to attach trim at the factory. Our covers are so precisely made that, once installed, you can’t tell them apart from a replacement.

However, if you don’t mind doing the labor required to remove the entire handle assembly, we can supply you with a replacement that will fit perfectly and supply your tailgate with an eye-catching gleam. The handle comes with everything needed for installation, and no modifications to your tailgate are required. Both our covers and our chrome replacement handles will fit your tailgate no matter what options you have. If your tailgate locks or if you have a back-up camera, or both, openings are supplied so the lock and camera will perform flawlessly.

A chrome tailgate handle will be a definite appearance upgrade for your truck, but what if you could improve your truck’s looks and increase your safety at the same time? If that sounds like an appealing combination, then check out our chrome LED tailgate handles. Along with brilliant chrome, these replacement handles have bright and efficient LED lights that work with your brake/running lights. With one of these unique handles, your truck will have a sleek, modern appearance and also be more visible to drivers behind you, especially in darkness.

    One of the more eye-catching tricks automobile manufacturers have used to differentiate higher-priced luxury versions of a car model from value-priced versions of it has been to vary the amount of chrome trim on the vehicle. Base model cars and trucks (also known as "strippers" or "entry level") have little if any chrome while luxury and top-of-the-line ones have the most chrome. In years past, plain Jane cars were simply painted in all areas instead of being chromed. In more recent decades, the low-cost replacement of choice has become black plastic. This makes base models easier than ever to spot because the eye catches hard on black plastic. Completely missing is the pleasing chrome finish on grilles, door trim, mirror assemblies, light bezels, and other areas. Base models end up looking more like fleet vehicles or work trucks than anything prestigious, especially to people who aren't automotive enthusiasts.
