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.

This is FANTASTIC! Works great!! Easy to install. Less than 10 mins. Durable and cosmetically pleasing. My tailgate is no longer slamming down. I had shoulder surgery and this has been a lifesaver lowering my tailgate. Thank you!

Installs easily. Handle for my tailgate is high and uncomfortable for me to open with a bad shoulder, so now I can open it and let it drop slowly with the tailgate assist.

It works okay but my tailgate was still going down faster than I wanted it to so I put a second one on the passenger side which they say don't do. I had to modify it a bit but with them on both sides they work just how I wanted them to.

Cuts tailgate drop weight by about 50% - also assists in raising tailgate by reducing lift weight. Easy to install if you read simple instructions - don't snap on piston upside down - I will probably break contacts if removed - I've installed one on two trucks - wife now has no problem with tailgate - cost effective simple product that actually works.

Great product, easy to install. Follow the instructions to the letter. If you over tighten the do*hicky nut it will strip it out and then you will be up the creek! But you can always buy the replacement nut. Wish Chevy would have put this on all trucks. It is a must have if you open and close your tailgate a lot.

I wish I had known about the tailgate assist sooner. It works great on my 2009 Silverado. You can now just open the tailgate and let it drop, the assist cylinder takes over for a smooth opening. It installs in minutes.

I had previously installed a tailgate assist on my 2013 Silverado, and it worked great. Having gotten used to just popping the tailgate on my 2013, I pretty much forgot all about that little thing called gravity when opening my tailgate. I went looking for a new Silverado (2015), and when I popped the tailgate and let go, the unassisted tailgate started falling normally. I was thinking I'm going to screw up this tailgate by letting it drop full open. So, I tried to grab the gate enroute to full open, and majorly jammed my finger (that still causes me problems a month later). I did buy the new Silverado, and immediately ordered the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist. Auto Accessories Group shipped almost immediately, and I had it installed in less than fifteen minutes. The unit is very high quality, no drilling, and very good instructions (READ THEM) If your truck doesn't have something like this installed from the factory, I highly recommend installing this yourself. After you have had it for a while, you'll wonder why every truck doesn't have this as standard equipment.
