Few places on a working truck take the kind fo regular abuse as do your tailgate supports. When you're working hard, opening and closing your tailgate often, trust its long-term health to the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist.

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.

Only gave it four stars because I just don't know how long the shock is going to last, seems small for the required task.

The tailgate assist was super easy to install on my 2019 Ford Ranger and went on in less than 10 minutes. Make sure you have a T50 torx! Great communication on when item was shipping. Love it!

Was easy to install. Worked great for about 4 days. Now your really do have to “assist” the tailgate or it pops off. Great when it works though.

I received my E Z down tailgate assist very promptly (thanks), studied it briefly, and got out the tools. Within about 20 or 30 minutes had it installed on my truck. I was immediately impressed with the quality of all the hardware, and then the operation of the strut. It did exactly what had hoped and wanted. Lowers the tailgate nicely, and makes it very easy to raise and close (and it looks good!).
