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.

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.

Installed this on a 2011 & 2014 Chevy Silverado, which was one and the same. The insert that needs to be 3/4 of an inch threaded out. Is the hardest part. Recommend, use dot of finger polish at top of one lob to reference complete turns. The is very easy! Have been enjoying the benefits of Dee Zee tailgate assist. You will too.
Nice but could be better

The strut work as described and lowers the tailgate nicely. However, the strut design could be improved because it forces the cable to extend out between the tailgate and the truck bed. Just does not look good with a loop sticking out the back of the truck.
Just reduces the slam of my gate. But it still slams.

Everything was easy to do but for my 2013 Silverado 1500 it just does not work. It still allows the tailgate to slam. I would try a second one but it is not worth the risk since this one does so very little.
Not cheaply made, good construction

It was a little bit difficult to get the lower ball into the tailgate. But once that was figured out it installed easily and works great so far.

Bought one for my '12 1500 Ram. Works fantastic. Its so cool to just pull the handle

and let the gate drop. For me a must on a big truck gate.
