    Was easy to install and makes the tailgate come down slow. Maybe a little to slow, but better then pulling handle and tailgate slamming down. Good if you have little kids that like to help out with opening the tailgate. (update: doesn't like to let the tailgate down when its sub zero out. Have to force the tailgate down)

    The product is great for aNY of the newer trucks with super heavy tailngates. Prevents rapid falling of the gate and possible injury and or damage to the truck. A little tricky to install but works great. All you have to do is unlatch the gate and let it go. Try that without the damper and you better get out of the way. Great Idea!
