    Default Would like opinion on tailgate handle.

    Should I leave it all blue or add the chrome cover to match the new Escalade handles, help me decide! I like it both ways so maybe you guys can help. I have it on right now to see if I like it in the long term.

    I would say and vote for going with a Billet Finger Grip Tailgate Handle, which is what I have, and as you mentioned Adam, going with billet handle will match/tie-in with the Escalade Door Handles.

    I think it looks sharp with all the handles matching.

    I would also go with the chrome for the handle. I like the look of everything matching. When I do the escalade handles on mine, I will get the chrome tailgate handle and pull off the big chunky avalanche bezel to paint it.
