wk interior door handles
 
So i was bored and surfin ebay for anything cool or new for the jeep and came across these.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...84.m1423.l2649

idk about anyone else but i despise the plastic handles that they used in the interior their hard to find and feel cheap, all the lucky limited owners got the chrome handles.
not sure about the quality of these though i know that the factory ones are plastic welded to the door panel.... what do you all think?

they are still plastic handles, they are simple to replace. i have done it before on other vehicles. this is a much cheaper repair than buying it from the dealer.

yeah at the dealer u have to buy a whole new panel which is like $300

ive felt the oem chrome and it is plastic but feels a lot more durable compared to the cheaper texture and feel of the basic handels. not sure if these handles are similiar to the oem chrome or just cheap chrome that wont wear good...

if you want to buy those replacements and just use the chrome handles you can. Those are oem. The chrome handle is just held on by a tension spring and are VERY easy to remove and replace. I have done it.

ohhhhh really thats cool, i would rather do something like that i would be nervous to completely replace the bracket in case it affected the durability of the handle.

wowww, great find! my driver side door handle is nearly destroyed and was looking for an expensive replacement but it looks like its a real easy replacement

its easy. i did a DIY write-up on it a while back. i originally bought whole panels from a wrecked jeep and swapped out handles. this is much easier this way.

They are not OEM parts. They are aftermarket but extremely nice copies. I need to replace all of them on my 05 so $120.00 is better than $2.4k. I'd have to break a bunch more to add up to the cost Jeep wants.

they wanted $750 Per door panel on my 05 WK.. I told them Take it off the Total price and i will fix it my self.. Bought the Jeep and fixed it for 20 buck (both sides need fixing so the total if the stealership repaired it would have been $1500)
