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.

Easy install, works great. View a video about installing recommended. Use of a clip removal tool better than using a flat head screw driver. I used a small plastic molding removal tool.

This product is awesome! For my 2020 Ram, it is completely hidden. Plus, it has just the right speed for the tailgate assist. Highly recommend this product.

Item was easy to install requiring few tools and little time. Drop of tailgate was slowed enough but could have been better. No problem closing. On 2019-20 Ram 1500 tailgates, I like that the assist is not visible.

Great customer service. Once it was established that the mounting hardware was already on the truck it was off to the races.

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.
