It was very easy to install, and does a great job of lowering the tail gate at a slow rate of speed. No more fast drops for me.

It was supposed to fit my truck. It did kinda. I had to beat on the inside of the tailgate opening and cut some of the tail light lens so it would not bind or break the lens. The cylinder sometimes prevents the tailgate cable from going beside the gate and pokes out , so I have to watch it when I close the gate. It does make the gate go down slow which is what is supposed to do and the reason I bought it. The "nut" that went in the current hole did not work and I had to pay a truck custom shop to put in a new one.

Was easy to install. The top ball joint does interfere slightly with the tailgate, and pushes it to the side when closing. But it works perfectly, and really helps me not to drop the tailgate.
