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 Dee Zee Tailgate Assist was a great buy for our F150. Installation instructions were clear, included good color photos and the kit included everything needed. It took about 15 minutes to install the assist and everything fit perfectly. I'd definitely recommend to anyone looking to eliminate the "tailgate slamdown."

Easy enough to install. Not quite strong enough for a super duty with built in step. It does help but you still better hold on to the tailgate. Overall it does help enough to make it worth the install.

Simple Installation, Works Great!

Before purchasing, I watched a YouTube Dee Zee tailgate assist installation video. After watching, I purchased the tailgate assist. Shipping was fast, received two days after purchase. The installation (make sure you have the required tools) was as easy as the video indicated, took about 15-20 minutes. Good step-by-step instructions are included. Works great.
