    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 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.

    I bought this hoping that the tailgate assist would aid in both lowering the tailgate and in the lifting of it. Turns out it only really helps by lowering the bed softfly.It is a great product if you are looking to have a self soft lowering tailgate, but the installation was not as easy as all the videos make it out to be.

    If you decide to buy this I suggest using some threadlocker (left to dry overnight) to hold the tightening bolt to the brass expansion piece to aid in your install.
