    My door handle inside is to the point that you lift all the way up and it barely opens the door - pretty soon we'll have to jump out the window or passager door. Easy fix?? Same door but now the power window barely comes up without some assistance...easy fix?

    My tailgate - the handle just broke off and now we need to pull the two "rods" together, lean into the tailgate for it to come down. Pain in the butt. Easy fix??

    2003 reg. cab 2500hd. 125K on truck. Over all great truck. Steering pump and alternator has been all we fixed on it thus far.

    Tailgate is an easy but kind of spendy fix.

    Use junk yard parts when possible it will save you a few bucks.

    window regulator will fix the window problem and you can get that at NAPA. There not to hard to change just takes sometime to do it.

    Youtube the window regulator and bring your tablet out to the garage with you. All I know about trucks is how to start them and I was able to replace the window regulator in about 30 minutes. You'll be fine. No specialized tools needed.

    Had the same problem on mine. Once I replaced the Tailgate latch, I pb blasterd all of it, including my windows. Everything works as it should.
