    Upon opening my tailgate, the latch broke.

    Does anyone here recommend which company to buy the part from that will last but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? It is without a backup camera for a 2008.

    I went OEM.. I replaced it over a decade ago more or less... just started greasing the area more often or every 2 oil changes. Routine keeps it nice and smooth..

    I have this same tailgate handle with integrated camera and so far it has worked well for me.
