    Stuck tailgate - tailgate handle broken.

    This past March I noticed my tailgate was stuck. In April I figured out the handle (some sort of plastic piece was broken on one of the two sides. I broke it the rest of the way off in attempt to try to gain access to my bed.

    Well, it's August and my tailgate is still locked. I've looked at some of the posts about this, but I still haven't been able to track down a handle other than my local dealership...which it costs a whopping $193.03. I can't find one at a junk/salvage yard or on ebay or anywhere. The one I am in need of is like the one in this picture.


    Also, if anyone has any suggestions on how I can gain access to my truck bed, I'd appreciate it.

    Not trying to be a smart ass or nothing but have you tried going in the Mid gate and unlatching the covers from inside the bed? I did that once with my avalanche.
