Few places on a working truck take the kind fo regular abuse as do your tailgate supports. When you're working hard, opening and closing your tailgate often, trust its long-term health to the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist.

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 only issue I had is I did not receive the hex key or the lock tight . Other than that I do enjoy the fact the tail gate does not fall as fast as use too.

This is not good for a 2022 Ford F150. They added two tie-downs on the tailgate. I use them to tie down 4x8 sheets of plywood. I called the Dee Zee company and was told that you have to remove the left one. It never said that anywhere. I would not have purchased that if I knew that. I exchanged it for one for my 2019 Ford Ranger. Good product made well, easy to install, looks good.
