    I noticed lately that I practically have to rip off my tailgate handle to get it to open. Has anyone else had this problem and was it an easy fix?
    Thanks,
    Ray

    Just an adjustment of the linkage that activates the latch from the handle to the idler. Take a look at the handle portion that the linkage hooks up to and see if it is bent. Also look at the idler to see if it is bent.
