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 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.

"Simplicity Realized" if this takes you longer than 15 minutes to put on you're like me and forgot to put your tools up after your last project. The folks that conceived this really did "begin with the end in mind". Simple to install, fulfills a real need and quality in both design and function. I'd probably have one even if I didn't have a truck.

After installing on my 2013 F-150 I find that each time I close the tailgate the Piston pops off of the tailgate. It will not stay connected. I wish I had a fix. A message to MFG got no response at all.
Nice product

Product has been working fine and makes opening tailgate a lot safer for the wife. Had a small problem with the install of the ball mount into the tailgate itself. Had to apply tension to the compression nut to get to compress several times before it finally became tight in the tailgate. Other than that the install was a piece of cake and works great. Would recommend this product.

The tailgate assist DZ-43301 for the 2014 Ram 1500 PU is perfect! I can open the back w/o control the tailgate from slamming down. The F-250 tail gate was a chore to keep it from dropping like a rock and damaging anything in its way. This unit is easy to install and my wife loves it.
Like adding an extra hand, easy to install, works great so far
