Default Replacing door handles

Ok so I've had my dodge ram for a few months now and I'm not sure whether I have a Sport or not, but the grill is chrome as well as the door handles. But I'm planning on replacing the grill to color match, but I was wondering where you can purchase cheap replacement door handles, and are they easy to replace.

The handles are not hard to replace. Just takes a little time and basic hand tools.
You can probably find them for about $50 each.
mopar-wholesale.com would be a good place to start looking.

I forget how the inside panel comes off, except for the bolt that can be found when you pull the inside door handle outwards
I know the panel lifts straight up & towards you

someone can likely explain it better, several people have taken the panel off to get to the door speakers while upgrading them

my door handles are painted & i have the sport style front bumper

Oh right on, i didn't even think about the option of painting them. Was that a cheaper option than replacing them?

Mine came painted that way from the factory

it may be easiest to just replace them & sell the chrome handles to recover some of the cost

Painting over chrome

UPDATE:

Wow am I blind, after owning my Ram for some time now i just finally noticed that actually had door handle covers the entire time. I pried them off to find that the door handles underneath were color matched

Just need to find something that will scrape off the little excess adhesive left behind.

Try GooGone or Oops to remove the adhesive.. If it works then you won't damage the paint under it.
