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!

Setting tailgate post was confusing at first but those with mechanical background can figure it out. Upper spring clip failed in first 24 hours. Dee zee sent additional clips within a week. Now that everything is operational, I wouldn't want to be without it.
Made with quality material looks factory made

sometimes you buy things not knowing if it will work but you take a chance anyway. well no doubt this product works well. it took a lot of weight out of lowering the tail gate, open it let it go and it eases down just like it was designed to do. works well on my 2014 Silverado.
It works okay

It helps out a lot from the tailgate hitting down hard when you open the gate.

Nice addition to the tailgate. With The anchor they give you to insert into the existing hole, the reccomended # of turns to make it catch is way off. It's not enough. But easy to figure out. Overall a nice product.
Great addition to my truck!

I installed two of these on my 1 ton dually's tailgate as I have a fold out ladder mounted to it and one assist wasn't quite enough. They say for driver's side install only but it CAN be installed on passenger side as well. You must modify the tailgate hinge bushing on that side tho. Easy to do.
Works fantastic
