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.

The product is of good quality and love the fact that when I put down the tailgate now that it does not slam down any more. My wife even said that when she opens the tailgate it will not hurt her hand.

Great product. It’s nice not having to control the tailgate with my hand and my 6 yr old can open it for me now. I also like the fact this one came with 2 aluminum plates for installation. Makes the install look cleaner and much stronger.

I like how the tailgate assist works. The directions on the other hand I did not like. The directions didn’t explain how to install very well. I had to call support and I have a engineering degree. Better explained directions would help a lot.

Install Time: 30-60 minutes
