Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product, installation was difficult just took a little time. Instructions could be better like the rest of the reviews. Make sure you read thru them, each review has good points. Don't cut the wire for the guide lines and don't forget to connect the power wires up by the radio.

Great aftermarket camera for stock radio

2016 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Vehicle; 2016 Ram 1500 SLT Camera is apparently for multiple year vehicles as well as stock & non-stock radio installs so some wires are not used for the stock radio install. Installed the tailgate handle, ran the wires down the brake lines, up through the emergency brake grommet. install the cable behind the emergency brake cable & up into the cabin, no drilling necessary, push the boot back in place & seal the slice in the boot with silicone later after everything is installed. The extra power & ground wires on the camera end of the cable are for non-stock radio power. If you have a stock radio it's pretty much plug & play, you do not need to run an extra power line from the rear of the truck along with the main cable up to the front, the camera is powered thru the main cable attached to the bypass harness, I did tie the red & white power lines at the harness & camera module together though. Dip switch #4 is to allow viewing through the camera while not in reverse, I have a 2016 ram & my buttons are for Bluetooth & for adjusting settings so this function did not work. It was suggested in one of the reviews that the "back" button was activated for that function instead but that did not work for me either. The bypass harness cam lever can be a little tough, I needed to gently manipulate the wires down & out of the way under cam switch lever so it opened fully for properly seating & locking the harness into the back of the r

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Directions not fully clear

Works great and accurate guidelines

2014 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I ordered this for my 2014 ram with the 6 button 2 knob, 4.3" radio and got it in today. After reading many reviews, I still gave support a call to clarify what the red wire at the camera end of the harness was. I hooked it to the 12v for the 7 way plug and the ground to one of the rear bumper mounting bolts. It wasn't too bad running the harness up and along the existing harness but rather than going in through the firewall or drilling a home, I used the one for the emergency brake. It was a bit cumbersome getting the adapter and control box all positiones behind the radio. Once I had the radio back in, I fired it up. It took the radio a few seconds longer than normal to give me the accept button. I shifted into reverse and instantly had a great picture. I backed up to my trailer to see how well the guide lines were and was quite pleased. I'm hoping that after I get the sale code for the factory brake controller and, for safe measure, the factory backup camera, I'll have the option to force rear view while not in reverse. I don't have the radio controls on the steering wheel so I can't test it yet. So far I'm very pleased and only give it 4 stars because of the poor instructions I'd give 4.5 if I could because of the support. Oh and please ignore the dirty tailgate, Oklahoma dirt roads and black make it hard to keep clean.

Pros: Great picture Fairly easy install Great support

Cons: Bad instructions provided

Lousy product

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A waste of money, 3 rd time its failed in less than 2 years. Wiring is perfect shrink wrapped and soldered. product sucks. Directions not too clear unless you are some kind of electrical expert. Done with it, going to pay for a professional install. They will gladly keep sending and billing you for new ones, just sick of crawling under the vehicle. I am sure I am too far out of warranty to get my money back. Oh well

Pros: they will honor the warranty by sending you new one (Billed for it till you return the old)

Cons: Failed multiple times, usually in cold and crappy weather when your hands are too cold to re wire.

Ok folks i just installed my backup camera on a 2016 dodge ram 1500 i have the u connect 5" radio. Do not worry they are simple the only thing is the back button on the dash does not work i think it is because there is a blue wire that calls for 12 volts i didnt hook up the instructions say nothing about it but i dont need it here is what i did i bought 1/4" wire look to put the audio cable in and ran it with the factory harness and zipped tied it real good i went into the grommet for the e break cable to get it in the cab so i didnt drill no holes went through the tail gate hole and there is a hole in the truck all ready people was saying about running ground wires and power wires no the ground on the camera part i put a end on it and grounded it to the bumper brace nut on the driver side no drilling or using self tapper screws simple the ground on the module plug there is a tin bracket inside when you remove radio i put that ground there with a small self tapper putting a wire end on the radio no running extra nothing the red wire on the camera side you dont need if using the factory radio the white wire that runs with the frame harness hooks to the red wire on radio/module harness and plug in the yellow rca plug that powers the camera that is it it is very simple if using the factory u connect radio and do not cut the little white loop wire or you wont have guide lines the instructions are not good my camera works great put the truck in reverse and the radio switches over

Pros: Makes hooking up camper a cinch

Cons: instructions are confusing

Camera works well about 2 hours to install once you figure out the wiring I had a question about the one red wire near the camera a quick phone call and all my questions were answered great text support. Camera works well with no problems ignore red wire near camera if you have a factory radio and extend a ground wire up to the radio

Pros:

Cons: Directions should tell you red wire back by camera is for aftermarket radio hook up to the backup lights

Thomas from Bethlehem, KY on 9/3/2018

2015 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product, good customer service...substandard instructions. A bit disappointing that Crutchfield continues to send out the kit with the current instructions. (5) important notes here: 1) ground wire can be connected at frame rear, do not pull all the way to the cab. 2) Camera is powered from radio...do not run hot wire to back 3) do NOT cut the white wire loop if you want guide lines. The sticker says "cut for guide lines"...WRONG!!! 4) remove large center console to piece before removing the dash piece around the radio. 5) DIP switch 4 on for force camera and use "Back" button on dash, not the steering wheel button (directions are wrong again"

Pros: Nice hardware

Cons: Instructions are not clear at best, and wrong at times. Directions on label are wrong!

Plug and Play!

Lance from Ramona, CA on 7/7/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Plug and play! I was a little hesitant to install this, but today I bit the bullet and did it . 3 hours later in, working and shop cleaned up! The reviews really helped, take the time to read them and they give a few hints. Watch the you tube on removing the radio, worth the 2 minutes. The radio harness included makes this a breeze, once you have the wire up to the radio it goes quickly. My advice is to connect the ground wire and tape it to the video wire, this will make running the ground (not included) a lot less aggravating. I used the brake line routes to connect the wires. The camera is very clear and the angle is super. Very satisfying DIY project.

Pros: Wiring harness, quality of the product.

Cons: Instructions, could be a lot clearer.

Back Up camera for 2015 Ram Big Horn

Greg from Portsmouth, NH on 6/16/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

It took me almost 5 hours to complete this install. I followed the instructions on Installation diagram. And the back up camera works great. I thought something went wrong but later figured out you need to hit the annoying, "accept" button on the U Connect screen, I have the 5" version in a 2015 Ram Big Horn. In the diagram I got It shows connecting a wire between the black wire from the regulator where you also tape off and don't use the red wire. The other end of this connection is the black ground wire at what they call the 8-pin Molex which plugs into you module with the dip switches. I turned on dip switches 2,4,6. Dip switch 4 is suppose to allow you to Force RVC and view your backup camera while not in reverse gear. That is the only feature that didn't work. Also they don't supply about 10' of cable for your ground which they should. And yes the instructions aren't great but did work, maybe I have the updated instructions. I brought the wires in through a rubber boot for another cable as seen on one of the online videos. From there after removing a plastic cover along the edge of the carpet you can stay under the carpet right on over pass the accelerator pedal and up behind you U Connect radio. Plugging in the supplied wire harness was way harder than it should of been to get it seated and snapped in. Good luck, it is worth it.

Pros: Works Great. Great price, fast shipping.

Cons: Missing one length of wire for your ground wire, about 12'. Instructions incomplete. Force RVC did not work.

Crutchfield customer from Arthur, IL on 2/11/2018

2015 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Nice product after you get it installed. I took my 2015 Ram to a shop to have installed instead of trying it myself. The shop had to call tech support numerous times because the directions were incomplete. Eventually they figured out the camera needed its own power source which required another wire, not with the kit. I have the 4" radio screen which is small but the camera view picks the blind spots from the side mirrors. It's much nicer than the one kind fits all with separate monitor. If they could get the directions more complete, this would be a 5 star kit.

CRUTCHFIELD>>>> UPDATE THE INSTRUCTIONS!!!

Ross from Chesapeake Beach on 9/27/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Man oh man.. Love the product. HATE the install. This is the second back-up camera I have installed and was the largest pain so far. I guess this would have been better if they would have put instructions on how to remove the trim around the stock radio.. You tube has a video, but it didn't show one of the screws in the little cubby hole storage spot.. There is a screw back there. Everything in the back of the radio was plug and play with the harness, so that was cool. The really bad part of this was the wiring diagram. There are a couple of ways to do this on here in the reviews, but this is what I did because I knew it would work, but it wasn't on the instructions!!!!! Install the tailgate lever just as they say on the instructions. The camera came already installed, so no issues there. Run the wires through the inside and out the bottom of the tailgate. I used a wire hanger as a pull guide.. Run the RCA and the Red and black wire as far back as you can. I followed the other electronic wires on the drivers side of the truck. Find those and follow those. Ground the black strand to any ground screw along the way. Now connect your own similar gauge wire to the red strand and run that up to the front of the truck with the RCA cable. Now connect your wire that you connected to the red wire, the red wire that is on the male end of the RCA and the white wire that is coming from the pigtail. Ground the pigtail black wire.

Pros: Great product

Cons: Install directions are crap.

Adam from Houston, TX on 8/14/2017

2016 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The instructions from Crutchfield are great on removing the radio. The instructions for the installation of the camera are pretty poor. There are wires not shown on the instructions and wires not included in the parts that are shown in the instructions. Calling Crutchfield for help during the install caused more confusion with the person claiming that there are updated instructions for the camera that were not sent with the order but that he couldn't email the instructions to us either. The help he offered did no good, because we had to go back and ground the wires at the camera anyway as well as at the radio anyway. The switches on the module had to be played with quite a bit but we finally got it to work. The customer reviews on this site and from other sites is what made the install possible. The instructions in the box with the camera made this install much more difficult and confusing than it should be. Other than the difficulties with the installation everything else is great. The camera is clear and bright on the stock stereo screen and the wiring is able to be hidden away entirely to make it all look stock.

Pros: Clean installation Great picture

Cons: Poor Installation instructions limited help from Crutchfield support phone number (had to redo parts of the installation that he informed us on how it "should" be installed)

Tim from East TN on 6/27/2017

2014 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The right system for my application (2014 Ram 1500). Crutchfield sales nailed this as the right system for my truck. Plug and play with no dealer programming required. Installation was really easy. Reading other's reviews helped a lot. I was a little disappointed with the installation instructions for running the wiring, but not enough to dock my rating at all. For me, the easiest thing was to drill a small hole right under the console, install a grommet, and bring the wires (including the ground) in from there to the head unit (8" OEM screen). The pre-mounted camera in the new tailgate handle is at the perfect angle and shows a nice wide picture. The handle itself is nice quality. The picture is super clear, day or night, and the guide lines are really accurate. Fantastic for hooking up the trailer on the first shot and really adds a huge safety factor for parking, etc. This system was worth the extra $ for me because it took all the hard work out, did not waste my time, and worked on the first try.

Pros: Plug & Play Works perfect with OEM head unit Crutchfield Sales

Cons: Instructions a little weak on wiring

Works like factory install.

Bill from Colorado Springs, CO on 4/26/2017

2016 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought this because I wanted the display to be through the factory radio (Uconnect RA2) in my 2016 Ram 1500 Bighorn. Replacing the factory tailgate handle with the one from the kit was super easy. Running the wires from the tailgate to the cab was a bit harder but should be easy if you're young. A tip here, don't bother cutting the nipple on the rubber wire boot where the factory video cable would have been, the cable isn't going to go thru. There is a plastic plate that is covering a hole in the firewall that the clutch would go throug. Remove that and use the holesaww that comes in this kit. Get a rubber grommet and run your video and front ground wire through that into the cab. Also, you must ground both the camera at the rear and the ground wire coming from the harness. This works great. Nice crisp picture when backing up. All original controls work fine too. Saved me about 370 over the cost of the dealer installing the factory camera. Actually tried to have the dealer install the mop are camera but the two they had in stock were defective. Thanks Crutchfield for this alternative.

Pros: Great picture. Works with factory radio screen so nothing cluttering up the dash.

Cons: Instructions not totally clear on connecting power and ground wires.

Mark from Roaring Spring, PA on 1/19/2017

2016 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I didn't want a bunch of add on screens and an obvious add on camera so I purchased the Crux RVCCH-75DC for my 2016 Quad Cab Ram 1500. My vehicle has the 6 button 2 knob factory radio with a 4.3" screen. Before ordering, I fit checked my vehicle and it was a match. I also performed a chat just to be sure. (Very helpful. Thanks Maverick!) My kit arrived promptly and I disconnected the battery negative and started the install. After looking at the instructions, and the video cable provided that runs the length of the vehicle, I deduced that I would run an additional 2 wires, with the video cable, from the back of the truck to the front. (red and black) I connected the red from the back, and the red from the front, to the white in the supplied harness. I then connected the black from the back to the black in the supplied harness. I also set the module dipswitch 2 to "UP" so when the truck is put in reverse the camera activates. After plugging everything in and reconnecting the battery, this unit worked perfectly! Very clean and colorful display and a very clean looking install. This kit may seem pricey, but the overall quality and fit is superb and it worked as advertised. I would consider it worth the price and I am very satisfied. One would never know this not an OEM system. I would definitely purchased this again and I highly recommend it!

Pros: Works as advertised Very clean looking "invisible" install Beautiful camera display Perfect view of the trucks hitch

Cons: Instructions could be a little clearer

Jesse S from Spring Lake, NC on 8/9/2016

2014 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The system installed very smooth and works great. Piece of advice for anybody installing this, some info is absent in instructions. 1.) You can run power for camera from tailgate if desired or you can tap into white cable from radio harness like I did. There is a small ~6inch power cable coming from camera that I just capped off and terminated near tailgate. 2.) If you desire to terminate ground near radio like I did, you will need to purchase ground wire separately and run it the full length of the RCA video cable. Not a big deal, easy to do. Alternatively, just ground somewhere convenient near the rear of the truck. 3.) Before changing DIP switch configurations, ensure accessory power is off completely. Otherwise, prior DIP switch config data will be saved on data bus on integration module. (If this happens, you may need to wait 10-15 minutes without power to integration module in order for config data to clear from data bus) 4.) Cap off and terminate parking guideline cables independently if you wish to keep the red, yellow and green parking lines on the video screen when you back up. Camera integrates very well with uconnect, install was fairly simple. I'm very pleased with my purchase. I contacted Crutchfield at one point to confirm some questions I had about power and setup and they were extremely helpful. I will definitely keep my business with Crutchfield, thanks!

Pros: Smooth and easy install; customer service rep was technically savvy.

Cons: Incomplete instructions, tech support was good to fill in gaps in instructions.

Very easy install,took about 1-2 hours.All plug and go except ground at rear.Do not connect power to reverse at rear.Its already in the plug for the back of stereo. My truck has the 4.3 screen 6 button 2 knob.No problems with camera,works great.

Pros: Not going to any more bins now e.t.c :-)

Cons: Should have bought a Dodge Laramie :-)

It works and without having to go to the dealership!

DSL from Altoona, PA on 6/14/2016

2013 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had done a lot of research into back up cameras for my truck and had almost given up hope in finding something that would work with the factory radio and not have to be taken to the dealership to have the truck programmed to recognize the camera. I read the instructions twice to be sure I understood what was needed to install the system. I tested the camera by installing the interface cable to the radio and plugging the camera in without installing it in the tailgate. The instructions were not completely clear on the need to attach the ground wire on the camera end of the cable. Once I figured that out that needed to be done, everything worked fine. The installation took about an hour and a half. Most of that time was spent routing the camera cable from the tailgate to the radio. The camera works great when I'm connecting my trailer by myself, which was the original need. Now I find myself using it every time I back up. Nice safety feature and makes backing into parking spaces easy.

Pros: After routing the cables, it was pretty much a plug and play installation. The new tailgate lever appears to be the same quality as the original. The camera was already mounted in the new tailgate handle so no alignment was necessary.

Cons: I don't see the need for the ground wire at the camera end of the cable. Seems to me that should be part of the power feed to the camera.

Instructions need updated

Heath from Texas on 4/7/2016

2014 Ram 2500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This system works well but the install instructions need to be updated. You must connect the white wire to the red wire on the extension cable for power and ground at the camera. It is true you do not have to cut any wires, just plug in and route cables. Fairly easy to do. Many thanks to tech support helping to resolve bad instructions issue. Working great now.

Pros: Truly plug and play. No ecm update needed from the dealer.

Cons: Instructions not correct and detailed enough.

Features

Sightline Series Rear-View Camera System: The Sightline series RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system by Crux has been specifically designed for select Dodge Ram trucks that are equipped with a U-Connect factory radio. Now you can use your vehicle's factory radio to see what's behind you when backing up. The RVCCH-75DC comes with an interface module and the necessary harnesses and cables to connect the rear-view camera to your vehicle's factory system.

Note: The RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system is meant as a back-up aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.

Vehicle Compatibility: The Sightline series RVCCH-75DC rear-view camera system is compatible with the following Dodge Ram trucks that feature a U-Connect factory radio with 8.4" screen with separate knobs, 5" screen with 6-buttons and separate knobs, or 4.3" screen with 6-buttons and separate knobs.

Make Model Year
Dodge Ram 1500/2500/3500 2013-2017

Automatic Rear-View Switching: The RVCCH-75DC features automatic rear-view switching. This means that when you place your vehicle in reverse gear, your factory radio's monitor will automatically switch over to the rear-view camera so you can see what's behind you immediately.

Park Assist Lines: The rear-view camera provides parking assist lines on the screen of your vehicle's in-dash factory radio. These parking lines are there to assist you when backing up into a parking space. There are two vertical lines which help you judge the left and right edges of the parking space and your vehicle. There are also 3 color-coded horizontal lines that are used to distinguish how close you are getting to the end of the parking spot - Yellow (Clear), Purple (Getting Close), Red (Very Close).

Note: You can turn off the parking assist lines by cutting white wire loop of the back-up camera cable.

Replacement Handle Assembly: The RVCCH-75DC's rear-view camera flush mounts in the included bracket/handle assembly. This custom-designed mounting bracket and handle assembly replaces the factory handle of your truck's tailgate. First you will need to remove the factory handle from the tailgate and then install the bracket/handle assembly in place of it. You'll also need to drill a 18.5mm (5/8") hole behind the rear-view camera in order to route the wires and cables.

Power/Ground & Signal Connections: The rear-view camera features an attached 19" power/signal cable which plugs into the included 20' composite video cable and the 46" power/ground cable. The composite video cable then plugs into the include vehicle harness. The vehicle harness plugs into the RVCCH-75DC's interface module and your vehicle's factory radio.

Installation Note: Because of the cables attached to the tailgate, you will need to disconnect and reconnect the camera each time you remove/re-attach the tailgate.

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

To add a backup camera, to an otherwise stock interior, that doesn't require the purchase of an additional OBD programmer or trip to the dealer to activate. [ Tom  Oct 17, 2018 ]
for my ram 2500 [ Fredrick  Oct 07, 2018 ]
Similar cost to OEM dealer unit, BUT no need to pay for BCM flash with plug and play. [ Thomas  Aug 06, 2018 ]
Exact fit and interface with my truck. Good reviews from multiple customers. [ Tim  May 28, 2018 ]
vehicle specific [ MARIO  Mar 23, 2018 ]
I can install myself. [ Thomas  Feb 08, 2018 ]
AFTER READING COMMENTS LOOKED LIKE WHAT I NEEDED FOR MY RAM 1500 2017 [ lee  Oct 11, 2017 ]
Perfect fitment for my vehicle. [ Steve  Oct 03, 2017 ]
Looked to be the best aftermarket back up camera on the market [ Mike  Jul 01, 2017 ]
I purchased a gently used Ram Truck with a cap on the bed. With the cap on the bed, I find it difficult to gauge what objects are behind me as I am backing up. I contacted the dealer about having one installed, and the price was much more than I am willing to pay. This product, though it is not a genuine Mopar part, it fits my truck without many modifications. Once it is installed, no one but myself will know that fact. [ Stacey  Sep 14, 2016 ]
Good reviews and it fit my Truck. Instructions could have been a tad clearer, but I was able to speak with their customer support with minimal problems. Product works great. [ Allen  Mar 14, 2016 ]
Vehicle fit, cost and no dealer activation. [ Ned  Mar 04, 2016 ]

Hey Mark. I'm not sure I fully understand your question. Are you interested in using the Crux RVCCH-75DC Backup Camera System but swapping out the camera that comes included? Or are you wanting a different camera that also works with the stock screen but mounts in a different location? If you can provide some more details about the vehicle and what kind of setup you are hoping for we can let you know what options we have. You can chat or call a Product Advisor for personalized advice here: https://bit.ly/2QNxGQB --Cosmo [ Cosmo  Jan 01, 2019 ]  Staff
Not sure. I have an aftermarket sound system that it didn't affect at all, but my head unit is all stock. If the wiring harness behind the radio wasn't changed, then i would think it should work [ Ryan  Jul 18, 2018 ]
No, they were stationary on my system. [ Chad  Jun 28, 2018 ]
The guidelines don't move. They stay straight. I love this kit though. It works great. [ Matthew  Jun 27, 2018 ]
No they don't move or bend they are straight. I find it easier when hooking up to my horse trailer. The last line is exactly where my hitch ball is so I know how far to back up. Hope this helps. [ melissa  Jun 26, 2018 ]
No. They are fixed. [ Richard  Jun 26, 2018 ]
The guidelines do not move [ Bobby  Jun 26, 2018 ]
No. The guidelines are steady. [ JAMES  Jun 26, 2018 ]
No it does not as long as you have a RA2 radio or newer [ Christian  May 12, 2018 ]
You do not need a dealer to Intall it. But we did call the help line for troubleshooting issues. Once we understood what had to be done it was fine works great. [ melissa  May 04, 2018 ]
It does not require any programming changes to the vehicle. I installed mine, followed the directions and it has worked flawlessly for years. Bought it to assist in trailer hook ups but find I use it often in parking lots and tight quarters when backing up. [ David  May 04, 2018 ]
Not at all. There is a module that plus into the back of the radio/stereo that has dip switches to select a couple of possible options. Other than that it is totally plug and play. [ JAMES  May 04, 2018 ]
No nothing need from the dealer on my Dodge Ram [ Bobby  May 04, 2018 ]
Hi Don, I installed this camera in my 2014 1500 RAM and have had no issues to report the rear tailgate lock is fully functional as is the camera. Great product. [ Fred  Apr 05, 2018 ]
The lock/unlock function worked as normal on my 2014 Ram. The hardest part of the install was finding a place to run the camera cable into the cab. I also had to find a good place to attach the ground for the camera. Attaching it to the metal of the tailgate did not work for me. I ended up running another ground into the tailgate from the chassis. After doing this the camera has been absolutely flawless. [ JAMES  Apr 02, 2018 ]
Nope. You unbolt the stock one and the new tailgate handle with camera fits right in. Looks and feels just like the stick handle. The camera module that plugs into the stereo is a pain though. And the install directions that are sent with suck. [ Adam  Apr 02, 2018 ]
The tail gate handle fit's and looks like a factory component. [ GUILLERMO  Apr 02, 2018 ]
Not at all. The replacement handle is the same as the factory handle with the addition of the camera. The locking mechanism is on a different wiring harness. [ William  Apr 02, 2018 ]
Nope. I have a 2017 ram it works as manufacturers specifications. The lock mechanism stays on. It's a cover for it with a camera and wires. Has nothing to do with the lock. Hope this helps [ melissa  Apr 02, 2018 ]
No [ Steve  Apr 02, 2018 ]
No it plugs right up. You will need to switch the old lock cylinder from the old handle to the new one. Very easy. [ Jeremy  Apr 02, 2018 ]
No, I installed it according to the instructions and haven't had any problems with the electronic lock/unlock. [ Gregory  Apr 02, 2018 ]
I installed mine on a 2016 Ram 2500. It works seamlessly with the truck. No issues with the lock & unlock function. [ Clayton  Apr 02, 2018 ]
No functions just like factory [ Bobby  Apr 02, 2018 ]
The new handle works the same as the factory equipment. The tailgate lock functions normally. Just follow the instructions and you will be fine. [ David  Apr 02, 2018 ]
No the latch is mechanical and set up the same way as the OEM handle. I rod inside the tailgate moves the latch. [ Justin  Apr 02, 2018 ]

It looks and operates like the factory handle no issues with mine at all. [ Gregory  Apr 04, 2017 ]
It doesn't seem flimsy to me. I've had it on my truck for about a year now and haven't had any issues, although I don't use my truck as heavily as some people might. I never even think about it not being the original handle, if that helps. [ Allen  Apr 04, 2017 ]
The same as oe original [ CARMELA  Apr 04, 2017 ]
