There have been many advancement in pickup truck tailgates in recent years, from tailgate locks and assists, to integrated steps that allow you to step right up into the bed, to remote releasing and lowering of the tailgate from a key fob. But for some reason, most vehicle manufacturers ran out of ideas when it came to tailgate handles. Even top of the line truck models appropriately fitted with chrome side door handles might have plain boring black tailgate handles. If your truck is so afflicted, the chrome, polished and brushed finish remedies are on the page before you.

    Whether your tailgate handle is the only blot of plain black plastic that has to be banished, or your truck is plagued with the stuff, we have the bright work to make things right. One of our chrome tailgate handles can be the finishing touch for your truck that the factory left off, or we can set you up with everything for a complete styling makeover including chrome mirror covers, chrome door handles, chrome tailgate trim, chrome bed rails, chrome tail light bezels, chrome gas cap lid cover, and much more. And with our tailgate handles you have several options for installation.

    We offer both chrome covers and complete chrome replacement handles. Covers are overlays that fit over existing handle assemblies, and they come in your choice of chrome, polished, brushed, and even gloss black finish. A replacement handle is identical to your factory handle in every respect except for the exquisite chrome plating or highly polished finish. A cover is the fastest way to a resplendent tailgate. Our covers are made of durable, automotive grade ABS plastic or high-grade, corrosion resistant stainless steel. The cover 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. It will fit and function the same as your original tailgate handle, but with a significant upgrade in appearance. In fact, both our covers and our chrome replacement handles will fit your tailgate no matter how your truck is configured or what options you have. For example, 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.

    If you want to upgrade your truck’s appearance and improve its safety factor at the same time then check out our chrome LED tailgate handles. Along with brilliant shine, 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. And you can set off your OE or chrome tailgate handle with our easy to install polished stainless steel trim and surrounds that perfectly outline the handle assembly. They also attach with 3M adhesive and some are available with custom designs including flames, lightning bolts, and tribal patterns.
