Default need a new tailgate

hey guys so i tried to open my tailgate the other day and i broke the handle and now i cant take my tailgate down unless i take the back panel off which is annoying lol

i know i can probably find a new handle etc but i wanted to find a newer tailgate with the ford logo in the middle and alot bigger logo as well, i think its on the 2006+ models

i was wondering if this statement is true plus if the brackets etc are the same. I want the newer tailgate and i dont want to do any modificication.

i have a 2002 edge 4wd reg bed, i dont think the newer rangers have really changed size wise so i am hoping im correct

thanks for the info

plus im thinking im gonna end up painting the truck white so i figured if i got a white one it would end up being a little cheaper to paint and if i decide not to its cheap to paint just a tailgate...
