You could always shave the outside and relocate the handle to the inside.

that is strange. Mine looked fine imo. I broke 2 in the first 2 winters I had my 02, Bought the metal one and it lasted till I traded it in. Im gonna buy a metal one to replace the plastic soon on my new truck

Well I suppose if it brakes again soon, I will just get the metal one. They don't cost all that much so.
