    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.

    It interferes with cable so much you have to push it back inside side of the tailgate, bad design. Top of shock hits cable connection.

    Love it! Installation was a snap, and it works as advertised. Wish I'd had one a long time ago!

    I love this on my truck, no more slamming tailgate if I happen to let go. The only negative thought I have is the included wrench to take the tailgate nut off stripped when I was trying to take the bolt off and I had to go buy another tool I will probably never use again.

    Nice upgrade

    Nice heavy hardware. With a couple more sentences on installing the blind nut, installation would be simple.

    My wife has arthritis in her hands, and having the tail gate "bang" as she opened it wasn't good for her or the truck. This simple device did the trick. Easy to install (took me about 20 minutes)and works great.
