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!

Easy to Install - and a great aid for people or are shorter in stature - not to mention my tail gate seems heavy this helps in just falling when trying to open the gate. I recommend this highly

The Dee Zee EZ Down Tailgate Assist has been a great addition to my truck as it works exactly like advertised. No more dropped tailgates for me.

Works just fine now that i've installed it correctly. I went too shallow on the brass insert, then i used vice grips to get it out,destroying it, then i called the company and they sent me a replacement set of inserts free of charge. Very nice of them. Installed correctly this time and all is ok.
