I installed the Dee Zee Tailgate assist strut on my 2021 Ford Ranger Crew Cab pickup. The installation was simple and in less than 30 minutes it was completed. No more of the tailgate crashing down. It's just a slow easy descent. I'm going to get one for my Dodge Ram 1500 in the near future. I can't believe that I didn't do this sooner!

Easy install, works great. View a video about installing recommended. Use of a clip removal tool better than using a flat head screw driver. I used a small plastic molding removal tool.
