You can trust the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist because it works with your factory cables, not in place of them, and has been specifically designed for heavy-duty use. Easy to hook up, with no drilling required, install yours on your truck and keep your rig in good health.

Don't jeopardize your truck's long-term effectiveness. Use a Dee Zee Tailgate Assist and never again worry about opening your tailgate. Backed by a 3-Year Warranty.

Fairly easy to install, directions however say 9 rotations for anchor setting bolt. It's more like 40. Other than that, fairly nice feature. Recommended.

Quality product, works great. The only issue is getting the nut sert started. Try separating the slots in the nutsert a small amount, before placing it in the mounting hole.

I bought this to keep my tailgate from bouncing when I have kayaks loaded in the bed. In that regard it seems to work admirably. I have to admit though I am getting quite used to the assist descender. It's one of those products that makes life just a little easier and makes you wonder why didn't this come factory equipped.

The tailgate on my 2016 Ram 1500 was heavier than on my previous truck (good). I let it slip one day and it experienced rapid acceleration followed by rapid deceleration (it fell). The tailgate assist has eliminated the issue completely. Happy.

I love the way this Dee Zee tailgate assist works. It gently lowers the tailgate on my 2016 Ram 1500 instead of it slamming down. It eliminates the need to hold the gate through it's lowering if your hands are full. It was very easy to install and only took approximately 20 to 25 minutes. The tailgate assist is well made and sturdy and should last a long time.

Works as advertised, the only issue is it adds an extra item within a small area of the tailgate where the cable is that holds the gate open. This means some rubbing of the cable and the new DeeZee tailgate shock absorber. Also means when first releasing it this initially causes some resistance opening the tailgate. Ideally I'd like to see a way to add this easy lift to under the tailgate like Chevy and Fords do it.

Good concept except for the nutsert...a real PIA...finally got it to stay in the tailgate...but called DeeZee for a replacement nutsert and ballmount because I anticipate having to replace it...which they happily sent out. Works great but the weak link is the nutsert attachment in the tailgate. The 9 turns is really 11-12 turns in my case. Look up youtube for removing nutsert...that'll be be fun, I'm sure!

I use to think that these reviews were made up by friends/family of the company. After ordering from this company they send you emails requesting your review until you write one. So here goes...I'm a guy from Mississippi that ordered the Dee zee tailgate assist and the slotted/drilled rotors and brake kit. My tailgate assist came within 3 days and I'm happy i got it. I think every truck in the world should have one. Just follow the instructions and your good. My brake kit came in 5 days. I'm glad i made this upgrade on my dodge ram. The only problem I had with the rotors was that they were labeled wrong but a little common sense goes a long way. They're a safe company to deal with, in my opinion.
