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.

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.

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!

The product was as advertised. This is the second one I have owned and they are well worth the money. This one was a bit difficult to install but one call to customer service and it was taken care of.
Very helpful!

The main issue is getting the anchors installed. I ended up using vise grips to hold the anchors, so would not spin. Once I did that, then the anchor opened up inside the door. The little that they tried with the ball barrings was a joke and I wasted about two hours and then ending up using the vise grip. I love the product, the price and the quality. Anchor installation was a pain.
