Each Tailgate Assembly is custom-machined from 6061-T6 billet aluminum with a glossy chrome or polished finish. The Chrome finish is generously plated creating a brilliant, low-maintenance "shwing" that retains its gleam without the elbow grease. The Polished finish requires a bit more effort to keep its shine, but is the ideal alternative for the budget-conscious do-it-yourselfer.
AMI Complete Tailgate Assembly is available with or without keyhole. Thanks to AMI's attention to detail, the Complete Tailgate Assembly installs in about an hour with no exterior modification necessary.

Was quite pleased with the product overall. It is somewhat of a chore to assemble the 2" spacer with an allen wrench (which is not provided) due to the limited space once the handle is put in position but was not a major thing and overall was very pleased with the quality and appearance of the finished assembly. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone wanting to improve the appearance of their tailgate.

Purchased to replace same handle that had corroded and pitted only after two years. However same matching door handles still look ok. Will be sending corroded handle back to AMI, maybe they will credit me. I treated the new replacement handle with clear coat. I selected these handles to have solid metal not plastic chrome covers.

The handle is nice and solid, no flexing. It looks great. Seems a bit pricy for two pieces and some simple hardware. Installation was not perfect, had to add some washers to line the handle correctly from side to side. Also had a tough time getting the center screw started due to the hole in the backing plate and the nut behind it lined up.

Installation was fairly easy, now I won't need to by a new handle every year.

This is a perfect replacement for the cheap OEM plastic handle. With this design there is no flexing of the handle during actuation. It is very solid and I will buy another one for my next truck.
