Cool product, but the assist strut doesn't seem to fit my 2000 Ford F250 Superduty. It rubs significantly on the tailgate, so much so that it is pressed off lower connection ball. Later productions (after 7/15) work.

Install Time: 30-60 minutes

Very easy to install. Tailgate was very smooth in letting down now. Well worth the money!

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.

Cuts tailgate drop weight by about 50% - also assists in raising tailgate by reducing lift weight. Easy to install if you read simple instructions - don't snap on piston upside down - I will probably break contacts if removed - I've installed one on two trucks - wife now has no problem with tailgate - cost effective simple product that actually works.

Great product. Only issue was getting nut insert to initially expand without just spinning off bolt.

Works great easy to open tailgate now. Showed a few friends, they both are ordering them for there trucks. Don't know why this is not something that the factory puts on. Every truck should have one installed!
