Painted tail gate handle

I tried to search but came up empty, so here goes. One of the things I love about my sport edition is all the color keyed accents (door handles, mirrors, etc..) but one thing that has been in my mind is how the tail gate handle is not color keyed. I was wondering if anybody has gone and got it painted, although I do not think it would be that easy. So if anybody is knowledgeable in how to do this and would like to share it would be greatly appreciated, any pics would be great too!!

an easy and still removeable way is to get one of the chrome overlays and paint it to match

I'd have to see what it looked like, but I think that it would be too much white in the back.

I like the color matched handle but that don't look like a Glendale neighborhood.

LOL I knew it wasn’t Glendale. Looks nice though, are there any 2WD friendly trails up there? I hear that the Pinetop/Strawberry area is beautiful. I want to take my grandson on his first camping trip (he's four) and thought that would be a good area.
