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.

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.

I love the Dee Zee tailgate assist shock! Install was relatively simple although you must make sure the nutsert tool works properly, when you turn the nut, it draws the other one inside the tailgate toward you, expanding the piece until it is tight, then you just snap the shock onto it! The rest is super easy and it works very well, thank you Dee Zee and Autoanything!

This product does not deliver what it promises. The piston is either too weak or is designed to be placed in the wrong location to provide the function it is advertised for. I installed one and it barely held the tail gate from dropping like a lead weight. Also it stops assisting as you close the tailgate so you feel the weight again. I complained to Auto Anything and they sent me out a replacement thinking it was defective. The second piston did not work either. I'm very dissatisfied!!

Very good product. I have put these on the last three pick up trucks I have had and also my son and a friend of ours have done the same.
