Hey y'all, 2005 truck and this winter my exterior passenger door handle sometimes will not work. I have observed that it won't work if the temperature drops into the 20s or below but it will work again randomly or when the temperature goes above freezing. Not sure what to do about this. Will always open from the inside. Any experience or thoughts with this?

I would normally say it sounds like the rod needs to be adjusted, but since it only happens in extreme cold, do you think it's freezing up? You might want to try soaking the latch assembly with some WD40, using the wand to spray into the latch as much as possible (make sure the window is up when you do this). Then, leave the door open for a while to let the solvent drain out of the drain holes in the bottom of the door.
