I have 2019 2500 Tradesman with 5in radio. Just bought a 2021 Limited tailgate handle without camera thinking mine would fit. Wrong. Question i have is if i was to upgrade camera is there a harness i can buy also because my camera takes different plugin? Or would the camera from a Limited not work in my Tradesman

The reason your camera doesn’t fit the new handle is because the new tailgate handle receives the camera used for the surround view system, which is quite a bit larger. You can’t use the surround view rear camera on your truck without installing the entire surround view system.
If you tell me your paint color and truck year, and which style handle you want (full body color, or body color with chrome), I can tell you the correct handle part number you would need for the camera you currently have.
