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.

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.

Was easy to install and makes the tailgate come down slow. Maybe a little to slow, but better then pulling handle and tailgate slamming down. Good if you have little kids that like to help out with opening the tailgate. (update: doesn't like to let the tailgate down when its sub zero out. Have to force the tailgate down)
