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.

Well made product but the insert was a little bit of a pain to get tightened- had to wedge it a little to stop turning in tailgate, once on the product works great- wish I did it sooner !!!

Works perfectly once installed. Installation was slowed due to an issue with the nutsert. Once it tightened, the rest of the installation was easy.

Ordered the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist for my 2014 RAM 2500. The fit was perfect and the instructions were spot on. I just need to get use to not catching my tailgate when I open it, I often forget that it is there and I wait for the tailgate to drop. Very convenient and easily one of the best mod's for my truck for the buck.

I absolutely love this addition to my truck (2014 Ram 1500 4x4). The instructions were perfect, the install was very easy, and I took it a step further by powder coating the appropriate parts of the tailgate assist the color of my truck (white). It looks like a factory install now. This is a "must have" addition to your truck....
