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.

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.
