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.

As simple as it is genius, the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist adds a heavy-duty shock absorber to your stock tailgate hardware.

There's no need to order two- just one Dee Zee Tailgate Assist mounted on the driver's side is enough to control your wayward tailgate.

I saw the Dee Zee Assist on line. Thought about it fora day or so, then decided to order it. It was delivered quickly. The instructions were fine for installation. Only issue I had was the upper part rubbed the tailgate when it was closed. E-mailed my concern and was answered back right away. Simple fix was to use a fender washer instead of the thick washer. Works great. Now I need a tailgate assist to lift the gate closed. The tail gate is just heavy. Thank you. Allan
