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.

Dee Zee EZ down tailgate assists are custom made for your truck in order to provide the ultimate fit and performance. 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.

Don't worry about installation or having to drill into your truck; the Dee Zee tailgate assist is super simple and easy to install yourself without any drilling required. 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!

Only had one problem and that is getting the insert bolt anchor to tighten but instructions noted that should this occur to try Lock Tight on the screw and tape. I did both and it worked. Works fine.
Love this product

Recieved my tailgate assist three days after I ordered it. Literally took me 15 minutes to install on my 2012 F250. Works great. No more slamming my tailgate, just a nice gentle drop. Great product, great price, very easy install. Would highly recommend this product.
