Krylon has a paint for plastics called Fusion. No priming or sanding required, unless you want to sand some texture smooth. Of course the paint will not match exactly though.

It depends on the color of your truck. If it is black or white, then the Fuzion paint should be fairly close, but any other color you may not find as close a match. Of course getting it done at a body shop will come out better but the cost will be much greater than a can of $3 spray paint.

I dont know if money is an issue or not, but I do believe some dodge pickups have color matched door handles. I would just recommend calling up the dodge house and getting ones from the factory. The paint is going to match and you dont have to worry about putting anything back together. I think once you get them and put them on it will be worth the savings of time and effort.

just my two cents.

I believe the color handels came on the sport model package. There is a special primer (forgot what it is called) you can paint over the plastic and then spray paint you factory color

It is not that difficult. Duplicolor makes intreior paint in a spray can. I'd primer it first then paint. Just don't spray too close and spray back in forth evenly, 2 coats is enough!

All I need is a LITTLE BLACK COUPE!

you need to sand and then possibly wet sand. that will give it the smoothest surface then prime to fill in any last little impressions. then paint promise that'll work

Then you're going to get charged more because they will have to strip the peice.
