Default Changing Doorhandles

When I bought my Ram it had the black textured handles so I found and bought OEM color matched ones. There are two door panels on each door. The first one is easy to get off the second one I couldnt figure out how to remove. The inner panel is a thick hard plastic which the window track and everything is attached. There is a small access square about 5'X5' which allowed me to change out the handles but it was tight and very difficult to do not to mention all the cuts from the sharp edges in the door.

Well, a few scrapes and cuts are worth it! Sounds like you got it done. Any pics?

This is what I did when I changed out my door handles, I drilled 3 holes to access the 5/16 screws

Where'd you find the OEM colour match handles? And about how much were they if you don't mind me asking?...

All four handles cost $200 without shipping. It looks a lot better now.

Nice, I dont like making any extra holes and not knowing what is behind what Im drilling but that is a good solution.

Handles are almost always a pain. Worth the work but never easy even on the GM's there easier but still expect a cut or 2
