Bought to stop thieves from breaking the cheap oem plastic handles. Pros: Looks awesome! No comaparison between these and the cheap plastic crome covers , solid, sturdy, key lock sits in solid aluminium cup. Cons: As stated in other reviews "needs some weather stripping around it". They are just a bit smaller than the stock plastic and can leave small gaps, Also in another review "the key lock holding mechanisim is a small machine screw with a small washer" Plenty of room to drill a 2nd or 3rd screw for added security as I did, They do heat up quickly in the AZ sun. Very happy with these door handles, a quality product.

An attempted break-in resulted in a punched out lock cylinder and broken driver side door handle on my ford truck. The stock door handles are plastic and can be easily broken into, so I decided to upgrade and get something stronger plus I already had the AMI billet fuel door. So far, I'm very pleased with the quality of the product. Hopefully these stronger billet door handles will discourage thieves from trying to break in next time. The only improvement I would recommend is a larger/stronger bolt holding the door handle in place. I pulled the threaded bolt out by over tightening, so I had to tap and rethread with a bigger diameter bolt.

They made the truck look great and add alot of piece of mind you see the old plastic door handles dont stop anyone from breaking in, my truck was recently broken into and partialy stripped the door handles now will not be the ease of access point anymore and the added time it will take might be just enough for me to load up and let out the dog.... oh and call the police lol thanks again for a great quality product

I purchased these billet handles to replace the plastic handles on my 2006 Dodge Ram. I thought these were complete handles ready to install, but they are not. Following the instructions was easy. You have to remove two pins and the spring assembly from the old handles first. It's not hard, but it would have been better to be able to just remove and replace the handles. I guess it's a cost factor for AMI to include these small parts. Once the old parts are added to the new handles, it's a straight forward installation. I think there should have been a seal for the new handles since the plastic factory handles will compress a little against the door bucket and keep water out. The jury is still out on that. I know they will be better than the factory plastic handles. They really make the truck look better and have a more solid feel when opening the door. I'm not sure how long the polished finish will last, but complared to $315.00 per pair for chrome plating, they'll be alright.

So I installed two of these. One sticks open, probably needs some adjustment and the other one doesn't assemble tightly, as in the handle rattles. It would appear the pivot hole was drilled too large when it was manufactured. So at $150 each, there doesn't seem to be much mechanical quality control. They look nice though
