Does anyone know were to find some steel or aluminum door handles for my 01 crew cab?:confused: not like the cheap plastic ones that keep breaking especially with the doors freezing shut. :mad:

^^^ those or the denali and Escalades came with metal handles instead of plastic.
When i put handles on my moms 03 escalade (first year of the new body style caddy), they were just chrome plastic. maybe the later models got them?

Not sure? The ones I bought were polished aluminum, I thought forsure they came off of a black Escalade? That was many moons ago though so who knows now...

GM never made them that way. They are all plastic. Even the ones that look polished are plastic and plated.

There is a few companies that offered billet style ones. AMI Styling has a complete billet handle https://amistyling.com/
or like mentioned above the Grippin Billet Series with stock or custom inserts if that is you thing.

Looks like AMI makes both the handle and bezel in billet. Wonder if this could be a stronger option for us...

Could get the bezel powdercoated a texture satin black and it would look nearly OEM.

There pretty well built. I pulled a set from a truck I parted out. I am not sure where they ended up other wise I would pull them out and show you.
