Thinking about changing to white door handles on my truck. Should I go to a junk yard and find a set off an LTZ or paint mine? Truck is white...

if they are cheap enough and worth the time to pull the door panels and install then sure go for it!

if painting just involves a body shop hodling the handle out and not having to do anything technical and its cheaper then do that too?!

thats a good question, i honestly think i would take the time and pull them out and take them to a shop and say here.....heres 80 bucks do it (primer, paint, clear, wetsand, buff)


and put them back in yourself!

How much of a pita is it to pull the handles?

they shouldnt be to bad. its just pulling all of the door panels and disconnecting the rods and theres probably a couple nuts holding them on. not a real big pita but a little one lol

i have no idea!

i would imagine pulling the door panel off and locating where the handle mounts too on the inside of the shell

bolts from the inside and has a steel rod that swings with the handle as its getting pulled in and out

im guessing of course :)

That was kinda my guess just was wondering if anyone had any experience with them I feel like white handles would make it look better at a pretty low price

I thought about plastidip but I figured grabbing the handle every time I get in the truck would make it look like crap after a few weeks
