Product Info
Features:
  • Reign in how fast your tailgate drops with the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist
  • Custom designed to work in tandem with your factory tailgate hardware
  • Maintains the drop rate of your tailgate so it doesn't slam down
  • Built tough to withstand constant use and punishing abuse
  • Installs in minutes with no drilling required
  • All hardware included- Mounts to driver's side of tailgate
  • Only one (1) Tailgate Assist required per vehicle
  • Dee Zee backs your Tailgate Assist with a 3-year warranty
Description:

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.

Dee Zee tailgate assist

Installation took about 20 minutes. It lowers the tailgate without banging. It also makes raising the gate easier.

Easy to install, works fine.

Ford should include this on all trucks as standard equipment. It makes it much easier and safer to use the tailgate even though it weighs less than the former all steel ones. However - DeeZee should have included a buffer sheet for use between the steel plates and the aluminum on the truck. I had to make my own from plastic shipping tape to prevent the galvanic corrosion from happening.

Tailgate assist is excellent

I am very please with DeeZee with this product. I am a 63 year old female and installed this myself. So convenient now to open the the tailgate and let it come down on its own. Had purchased a similar product that was not as easy to install and then the bracket broke within 3 days. I returned it, did some more research and found reviews on DeeZee product. The reviews were spot on, excellent product.

Works exactly as promised

I hated the way my Ford tailgate just dropped when opened. My son found this and I purchased it. Took a few minutes to put on, works like a charm. Highly recommend to anyone that wants a slow opening tailgate. Looks like and feels like good quality product, only had a month. I will be spreading the word about this product.

Great product for a great price!

I ordered the tailgate assist and received it very quickly. Installation was pretty simple and went without a hitch. Works like a charm. Now I don't have to worry that my wife will lose her grip on the tailgate and have it crash down. Very satisfied with the entire experience. Thank you!
