    Here's a quick time-lapse video of me installing my Pop & Lock handle. Really easy to install but the fit and quality is lacking in my opinion. Until I hear about something better, it'll have to do. Enjoy!

    Cool Vid. I have been on the fence about one of those myself.

    Did you a back-up camera? I have a PL5304 on order. Kinda hesitant about installing it myself for fear of messing up the backup camera.

    I ordered the same set up from what I have seen there is no problem with the camera.

    I had the dynolock on my 2005, ordering one for 2011 soon. I was really pleased with quality and function. It's a clean install and works off power locks, so it is keyless.

    How do you figure the fit and quality is lacking??? I have the same pop and lock handle and it's like oem fit and quality. Took about 10 mins to install.

    I do have the camera. Was very easy to install, I would definitely do it yourself!

    The left side is not snug. I tried to take it off again to see if I could fix that but one of the receiving bolts is just spinning around in the plastics now so I can't loosen or tight it. Works Ok but I expected better. I think the original handle's plastic is finished better too.

    hmmm odd, sounds like you stripped the threads on the stud or nuts maybe. they do offer a new kit that has the OEM finish. That's the only thing I can think is the "minor" flaw about this kit.
