its easy to take all the hard ware out just take off the tailgate by unhooking the little black cable things then pull up on the left side of the gate then pull it off set it on jack stands, handle side up, pop off piece around handle with screwdriver take out the 2 or 3 bolt that hold the handle on, pop off the rods, then go to the sides of the gate take out the two bolts on the latch then pull that assembly out do the other side the same way then pull out the handle its really easy
