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!

Installed in minutes, no issues whatsoever. Just oil the tool before you use it. Measure out, check and fit....that simple. Now my tailgate doesn't slam down and catch me unawares anymore..

Will never have a truck without assist again, pity it took me two years to find out about this product.

Easy to install and doesn't get in the way. So far no problems- hard to rate quality after only about 100 tailgate openings/closings. If it stands the test of time it's worth the $40.

Before purchasing I read most of the reviews and viewed the installation videos on You Tube and other web sites and took everyone comments,, some with a grain of salt. After receiving the tailgate assist gathering up the few tools needed it took less than five minutes to install. I would advise everyone to research the installation before starting whether its this item or others. It will make your life much easier and besides you know your capabilities and some people don't have mechanically skills and/or common sense. The assist works as advertised now its just wait and see if it last.
Great addition for a tailgate

This device installs in just a few minutes and provides a soft landing for your truck tailgate. I also bought the Living Step Tail gate step. This Tailgate Assist work well in supporting the extra weight.
Will buy again!
