f150 tailgate handle?

Haven't seen this anywhere before and I've been thinking about this for awhile now. Anyone think if it would be possible/easy/hard/etc. to 'retrofit' an f150 tailgate handle (such this) to a ranger tailgate? Including the lock? I already know about those 'pop and lock' tailgate locks, but this isn't necessarily about locking the tailgate; it's more about the handle itself. Just want thoughts/input. Thanks!

It's possible, but would require some custom work.

The only after market locking tailgate handle I've seen are those Bully ones, but I don't think they have one for Rangers.
