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!

Install Time: 1-2 hours

Good safety precautions for kids when they are playing by the lift gate. It was easy to install but would suggest to check on YouTube for videos to install.

Works great. Really adds some class to my truck. Also it helps preventing damage from happening when dropping the tailgate.

Easy install on 2014 FORD F150 XLT Crewcab. Make sure you turn the nut on the gizmo that installs the tail gate point. 3/4 inch from washer to alan bolt head, then use a wrench to turn the nut not the alan bolt. Other than that, the install was easy. Took 30 minutes, that includes getting tools out and putting them away.

This is a great accessory, especially for trucks like mine with the camera in the tailgate. No more kids or friends opening the gate and dropping it. Watched YouTube video and took about 5-10 minutes to install.

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.

Great product and great service. The tailgate assist works as advertised. I had to modify the installation instructions slightly for my 2015 F350, but it was not much of an issue. In my case, I had to remove and reinstall the tail light, as per the instructions, which added some time to the installation . Without that it would have taken 10 minutes.
