2011-2013 tailgate handle

So I thinking about changing the chrome tailgate handle to the black altitude version. As a cheaper and easier to install alternative, I was thinking of buying this, painting it myself and sticking it on over the current tailgate handle. Thoughts?

If you have the skills and equipment to do a quality finish on the piece, I see no reason why you shouldn't consider "rolling your own". Prep is the key here...

True....good sanding, couple layers of primer and a few layers of paint/clear coat...definitely doable!
