Whether your pickup is fresh off the dealership lot or a little long in the tooth, its tailgate is likely suffering from an age-old problem: premature opening. You know the symptoms. Every time you pull the handle, it crashes down against your bumper, your fingers or your Weimaraner’s skull. To cure what ails your truck, install the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist and never fear a flaccid hatch again.
As simple as it is genius, the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist adds a heavy-duty shock absorber to your stock tailgate hardware. Every time you open up your tailgate, the Dee Zee Tailgate Damper is there to control how fast it drops. And, unlike those flimsy screen-door dampeners, Dee Zee uses only premium components that can withstand constant use and abuse.
You and your drill might be best friends, but you won’t have to dust it off to install the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist. It’s completely custom designed to bolt into place and play nice with your stock hardware. And, the Dee Zee Tailgate Lift Assist is backed by a 3-year warranty.

Always a problem to drop the gate with your hands full. This assist saves it from slamming down. Great product, and Autoanything was awesome to work with. Super customer service.

Installation was a little tricky. It took 3 attempts to get the nutsert installed. The instructions say to adjust it so there is 3/4 inch between the head of the bolt and the washer. On the first 2 attempts I did that and the bolt just unscrewed from the tool. On the third attempt I adjusted it so there was a 1/2 inch between the bolt head and the washer and it worked that time. After that the rest of the install was a breeze. The assist works great, just pop the door open and let it go.

I liked it so well for my pickup that I bought another one for my daughters F150. I would recommend this to anyone. Easy to install. Only took fifteen minutes. Perfect for someone that has little ones.

Overall the tailgate assist works well. I am happy with the part. The only downfall was the installation process. The instructions tell you to use a t-45 torx. And they say the wrench included is that size. But in actuality it was not. It was a t-50. So I was unable to use the provided wrench. Not very thrilled with dee zee in reference to that issue. After you get through the install. You should be happy with the finished results.
