GM Tailgate Handle on an MJ?


Recommended Posts

I disagree.  I'd prefer nothing.  I spent a few years reaching in to grab the little rods and I'd prefer that to the rectangle peg in the trapezoidal hole.  plus it gave me a place to mount a flag. :D

I have the resources to produce a simple part like this. I thought about looking into the actual need, and the actual cost of producing them.

Fixed the link for you. No clue who or what that was. But I do remember someone on here talking about maybe making a small batch out of stainless a few years back.

Thanks, and yeah a stainless handle would far outlast the OE. It could be powder coated black, polished, or painted.

I'm planning on taking a long look at mine and try to add some sort of keyed lock. It would be a nice addition.

Grease, did you get around to making the handles out of stainless that can be painted?

I've built something along these lines. Drilled a hole in the side of the MJ tailgate handle for the power actuator arm to slide into. Metal plate with 3 holes is sandwiched between tailgate and tailgate handle. Ties in to the power door lock wires. I don't have it installed yet but have test fit and wired the power. Works well.
