I just got these door handles off ebay.  I think they were a great price.  I had no problems installing them and they fit very well.  I do have to trim the door gaskets, but here are some pictures.  The one thing I did not care for was the Company initials on the back side.  I can actually feel it on my fingers when I grasp the handle.  Outside of that I thought the price was great.

Well, I can save you a lot of time.  For the life of me I could not get the door lock to work?  After about an 1/2 hour I figured out the swivel assy that comes with the new Handel is not the same length etc.. as my old one.  Long story short.  If you have the old black plastic button, swap that out AND the swivel /ball assy to allow the arm for the lock to fully return to it's relaxed position, other wise even though the door Handel will function, because the thick arm cannot return to it closed position the lock assy cannot lock.  Something like that. icon_smile_big

That's a good point. smilielol  At first that bothered me a little, 70.00 when I paid 125.00?  Then I got to thinking what you're saying.  They wouldn't fit the Charger anyway. lol

I learned this also.  Don't take the gasket and cut it by hand.  It came out terrible and I had to order another set.  What I did was carefully run a sharp hobby knife along the handle and then just peel it off.
