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!

Installation was a breeze. A great addition to my new Ram. A big help when your arms are full. They should come standard on every vehicle.
Excellent delivery-instructions problem

Real Truck packaging,notification of shipping and delivery was excellent. The vendor's video on Real Truck was not clear on preparation to mount the nutsert tool. They were excellent in responding to my call for assistance and sent a replacement part after a knowledgeable real person explained the installation process over the phone. Happy smiles on doing business over the Internet.
Excellent!

Easy to install, and works perfectly. No more slamming tailgate or pulled shoulder joint. Why don't the manufacturers make these standard equipment?

Not sure why not all trucks come from the factory with this item already installed. This product was ease to install and performs just as expected. A must have if you have kids not strong enough to bring tailgate down safely by themselves. Great quality and at $39 from this site is a great buy.

I have a 2015 silverado 2500hd. The tail gate drops like a 50 pound brick. After installing this product, it drops like a 40 pound brick. I don't know if the piston part is not heavy duty enough for this truck or if I received a defective one, but the difference in performance was not worth the money and the 15 minutes that it took to install

Shipping was fast and installation took 15 mins. I thought it would slow it down more but as others have stated, it slows it slightly at the end. Maybe it will get better as it gets used more. If not, might add a 2nd one.

This was a great add on that the factory forgot. Some other truck companies do offer this as option but you can do this in 20 minutes yourself for half the price

As they say you only need one tailgate assist to do the job

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
