Default Comanche tail gate handle

My tail gate handle is broken on my 88 Comanche. I was wondering where to find one. I heard that I can use on out of an old s10. but I also heard that's a myth what have anyone done to replace the handle cause I don't think any junkyards by me would have them

How did it break? I have one intact, it just needs to be painted or something- has a couple of rust spots on the handle face. Otherwise it worked fine when I pulled it.
