Installation was a breeze. I just followed the simple instructions that came with it and was done in no time. You will not go wrong with this purchase. My wife loves it now that when she drops the tailgate, that she don't have to support the weight as it comes down.

If you have kids and own a vehicle with a tailgate, buy this now. I have two daughters and they have almost hurt themselves opening the tailgate without me there. Now they can open it and I know it won’t come down on them. The only caveat is the instructions I got were in black & White. Tough to clearly see the pictures. This added a little time to the install process.

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.
