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.

Product is great and functions better than the factory one on my other truck! Good parts and good finish on them. Definitely an add-on to the value to my truck.

2009 Dodge Ram 1500, After dropping my tailgate on occasion over the years and watching new trucks' pneumatic tailgates, I chose to add this dampener. The installation was simple with all special tools supplied. It catches the tailgate at about 30 degrees and smoothly eases it down to 90.

Great customer service. Once it was established that the mounting hardware was already on the truck it was off to the races.

The instructions were clear and concise, the install was also quite easy. The tailgate assist seems to do more when lowering the tailgate and not as much lift assist as I anticipated, however this is still a great addition as it makes lowering the tailgate much easier for my wife.

This makes my ford much more manageable to open the tailgate and reminds me of my Toyota Tundra gate which always impressed people with its smooth opening.
