The supplied torx wrench wasn't strong enough to loosen the bolt on the truck. Had to use other tools for that. Once the bolts were taken care of, installation was a breeze. A heavy tailgate is a dream especially for when the wife opens it. The nice touch was the clear mylar provided to prevent paint scratches and of course the smooth operation of the assist.

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.
