    I was wondering if anyone else has had a problem with their tail gate handle not working right. I went out to my truck and tried opening my tail gate but the handle was really loose and it wasn't opening or closing anymore. I couldn't find anything on search so i thought ill ask if there is a way to fix it.

    Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

    if you ask nice, maybe somebody who bought a pop-n-lock will hook you up with their old handle....

    Not sure on the newer Toys, but do you have a panel on the tailgate so you can remove the latch?
