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 EZ Down 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!

Ordering and delivery were simple and the package arrived as promised. The install was pretty simple watching the video. The nut insert was a bit tricky until you understood how it worked. I gave mine a couple of extra turns to get it snug but took care not to strip it per the directions. The accessory works great - no more slamming tailgates, my wife loves it too! Don't understand why manufacturers do not install this assist. Will buy again for my next truck
Great little assist

Tailgate on my 2012 Ram 1500 is quite heavy and this little device lets it down easy, especially if you are a little on the short side like me. Great little addition.

This product is great! I love it. I pop the tailgate open and let it go. Comes down nice and soft. No slamming down anymore. Can't tell it is there either when you lift the tailgate up.

There was a slight issue with installation. When installing the expansion piece it kept spinning. I had to put it in a vice to start it then put it in the tailgate
Works Pretty Good
