    This thing is really great. It is so nice to open the tailgate and let it go. I don't know how I did without it. Easy to install. I like that I did not have to drill into the sheet metal. That's what causes rust. Great product!
    Great product

    F150 tail gate with a built in step is heavy and dropped fast before installing the EZ Down shock. No drilling, recommended it to my friend with Chev Silverado, and install just as easy and functional.
