metal handles in the "Help" section of auto store work great. While you have it apart, tighten screws and grease everything.

There is a reason your plastic handle broke
The cable is stretched or your door is cracked. They are the ONLY 2 reasons the OEM handle brakes.

If you put the metal handle on you WILL tear the door

if your truck handle gives you troubke, take pnnel off. my assembly was loose with hardened dried out grease. tightened up, cleaned, with new grease still broke the old week plastic handle. i replaced with metal, works great.

on the handle mount braking, role window down and use outside handle.
