Description

The Dee Zee Tailgate Assist allows you to control your tailgate so you don't have to worry about it slamming down on someone or something below it. Additionally, the tailgate assist helps lift a heavy tailgate to reduce strain on your shoulders, back, and neck muscles - save the strain for your other heavy duty projects. The Dee Zee tailgate assist puts an end to the sudden slamming down and hard closing stubborn tailgates.

Dee Zee Tailgate Assists are custom made for your truck in order to provide the ultimate fit and performance. The high quality materials and components have been thoroughly tested to ensure that your tailgate assist will last for the lifetime of your truck! Dee Zee makes tailgate assists for most full size domestic trucks as well as kits for the Frontier and Tacoma.

Don't worry about installation or having to drill into your truck; the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist is super simple and easy to install yourself without any drilling required. The Tailgate Assist works in conjunction with your tailgate's factory cables and any additional hardware you'll need for proper installation is included along with easy-to-follow instructions.

Give your back and your tailgate a break and make things a little easier on yourself in the process. We know you'll immediately appreciate the ease this Dee Zee product will make in opening and closing your truck bed. You'll wish you'd added the assist sooner!

A friend introduced me to the tailgate assist and I couldn't wait to get one. I was so sure of it that I ordered my son one as well. When you have your hands full the tailgate can be a very cumbersome to open. Not so with tailgate assist. Just flip the handle and let it fall s-l-o-w-e-l-y open on its own. What else is great is that it only takes five minutes to install. It should be standard equipment on all trucks. The tailgate assist is absolutely worth every penny of its price. Awesome product.

The Dee Zee Tailgate Assist was very inexpensive and easy to install. The instructions were clear, concise and easy to follow and the photos made installation foolproof. I love how quickly the tailgate comes down WITHOUT slamming down and jarring the whole truck. Smooth and easy decent without quivering like some hydraulic cylinders I've seen in the past. I will assuredly put the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist on my next truck I buy. Thanks Realtruck.com!

This Tailgate assist was so easy to install even for me that Im not a car guy, A must have for your truck installs easy works great I suggest this to anyone who has a tailgate . Installation took only 20 min total time once you figure out about glueing the part onto the nut that fits in the tailgate of the truck after that simple!
