2008 tailgate handle w/ camera

Anyone ever swap in a 2008 tailgate handle that has the camera hole but used an aftermarket camera instead??

Im curious too, im willing to do some cutting to fit the 08 handle, I really want a clean install and quick trailer hookups. I have an 05. I just put a tool topper on and soon wont be able to see squat.

They are selling original handles with aftermarket camaras on ebay. I bought one but I wasn't happy with the picture at all. I guess you couldn't beat it for $90. I ended up selling it and buying an original one which looks awesome. I'm also selling a original one if you know of anyone looking.

It's actually a conversion 04 and you wouldn't want it right now. I got to get it running again. Thanks for the compliment

Will the 08 handle even fit the older tailgates?

I don't think that an '08 handle and bezel is even compatible with an '06 tailgate.

Damn Jrod your truck is something else.

I'm running the '08 gate and have a camera handle minus the OEM camera. I was hoping to find a camera that would be a close fit and worked great.
