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.

Super easy

Installed the Dee Zee tailgate assist the same day that I got it, took only about 6 minutes to install and works great, still getting use to not trying to catch the tail gate when I open it.

What a really nice item. My wife really appreciates this. Helps with the weight of the tail gate. Very interesting installing. I could not mentally understand how to install but followed the easy to understand instructions and it installed perfectly and simply. Would highly recommend.

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

Simplicity at its Best

I was quite skeptical at first when a friend of mine sent me a link which viewed the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist in action along with the quick and easy installation. The design, although very simple, was thoroughly thought through and paid close attention to every detail. From the easy no hassle installation down to ensuring the product would operate smoothly without causing damage or interrupting the functionality of the tailgate. The well planned out instructions made installation a breeze.
