This is a great product for those heavier tailgates. But the strength in this last one seems to be slightly lacking. Even though, it IS doing the job. The one thing that needs to be improved is the upper weld, so the EZ down doesn't blow it's top after extended use. I keep on buying it because of the heavy tailgate on my GMC.

I purchased this unit to replace the one I had in service for three years. Believe it or not, the problem was not with gas shock (a usual area of weakness) but with the stud that comes with the kit. The stud is some cheap metal and needs to be upgraded to Grade 8. Mine snapped off. So you ask "why would you buy another one?", well, I needed to get going again and figured the gas shock might go soon anyway. Oh well. Upgrade on the bolt needed to make this unit bulletproof.
Love it

Seems strong & installed easy. Problem now is it pushes tailgate cable out when you close so you always have to be careful to pushed cable in.
