I broke the aftermarket outside door handle off when the door was frozen a few days ago. I don't have a clue where to buy another locking handle or if I can put a original handle back in its place, as the truck came with them when I bought it. I wonder who the Ja##a@@ is that invented pot metal, although Im sure the Chineses perfected it to break easier and pit quicker when Crome is applied.
I hope they're using the same metallurgical techniques in their fighter jets and naval ships. "thosemilitaryguys.com" sells a pair of pre-painted locking handles for the Deuce for $65. They come in several common Deuce colors.

Thanks. I'll convert back to the original handle from Boyce or Big Mikes. I won't buy anything from TMG after reading all the crap that they pulled on some customers.
Yeah David, but they're only door handles. I'd buy em'. Mine have worked for 11 years. Having said that, with the exception of all of the kids in my neighborhood with Subaru WRXs, only about 18% of Americans can drive manual transmissions anymore according to an article I recently read. Most wouldn't want to be bothered driving a Deuce anyway. A buddy of mine didn't even know stick shift vehicles had 3 pedals until he watched me shifting Brutus one day and asked me about it. So, theft may not be much of an issue after all.

not much theft up here. I leave my keys in the vehicles. The bears, moose, and deer haven't figured out how to drive them.
