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 slamming tailgate 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 Assist is there to control how fast it drops. And, unlike those flimsy screen-door shock absorbers, 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. All mounting hardware is included and completely custom designed to bolt into place and play nice with your stock 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. And, the Dee Zee Tailgate Lift Assist is backed by a 3-year warranty.

The operation of the tailgate assist has made lowering that heavy tailgate a pleasure to open.

Easy to install fits nice. Works very well. Great if hands are full and you need to drop tail gate. Less likely to bend tail gate when a friend opens tail gate and just assumed you had a factory easy gate.

Tailgate assist is a awesome product to have on your tailgate, love how my tailgate comes down nice and slow without slamming down by accident. Installing was somewhat challenging just due to the directions not being very specific, otherwise it was No problem. Would recommend to others
