Altitude Edition Black Tailgate Handle

hey guys, has anyone swapped out the chrome tailgate handle for the brilliant black one? i have a question, Is it complicated to change the piece yourself?
i have the mopar backup camera system so i ordered the one with the backup camera cutout just curious is it a pain in the ass to separate the camera from the chrome piece and installing it into the black one?

if anyone has done this and has pics plz share

This has been done and posted several times. I made a thread myself.

i have a 2012 and posted pics of the camera removal.

It's actually pretty easy if you're a diy'er.

This is my thread if you want to check it out.

Re: Altitude Edition Black Tailgate Handle

that looks good. better than the chrome for sure.

i had some custom black vinyl decals made to overlay on the top flat surface of the front and rear "jeep" emblems.

i have the mineral gray so i want to put the black overlays to make the "jeep" letters stand out a little.

still waiting for them to come in to see how it will look.
