This handy contraption regulates the force and speed with which your tailgate opens and closes. Custom-made to your truck, it fits perfectly and regulates the speed with which your tailgate lowers so it doesn't just fall open every time you pull the handle. 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.

Great product! Excellent instructions, step by step color photographs. Package even contained a small bottle of thread lock. Heck, I would recommend this product to everyone, even if they don't have a tailgate!

This item was easy to install and worked well. Unfortunately, I installed it in cold weather and the plastic cable protector shattered like a potato chip.

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.
