Exclamation Broken Tailgate Handle Assembly Replacement

Does anyone know if you can purchase these assemblies "aftermarket" anywhere or are they just a dealer part. Tried over a dozen wreckers but they dont want to take it off a good tailgate. Dealerships want $260-$290 for the whole assembly. I only broke off the handle that has the Chrysler logo, the mechanism is still functional.

Can this be welded or is it a white metal composite?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Until then, good ole pliers are doing the trick for now.

You're better off trying to find a PT in a Pull-It-Yourself yard, usually they let you take what you want without any complaints (unlike the others in your case). Otherwise I can't help you with the composition :/
