Very easy to install. Of course as a man I didn't follow instructions, but it was still very simple. I did not remove the tail light. I simply went underneath and stretched my arm. Everything just snapped into place. 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn. My only issue is I wish it lowered the gate a little slower. Would 100% recommend this product for anyone wanting to safely lowering the tail gate.
