Really love this tailgate assist, should have added this years ago. The video and paper install instructions are very good and it wasn't a big deal to install. The nut insert is the only thing that is remotely challenging if you've never used one before. The video instructions are great there. I'm super happy with this product and it really handles the weight of the F250 tailgate. Also, a shout out to the chat on the website where the representative was able to quickly make sure I ordered the right part for the my truck! They even put it in the cart for me, very cool.

Very helpful unit to stop tailgate from slamming down when opening. Installation was easy and went together as directed. Quality of unit seems to be fair, as time will tell how long it will last.
