When you are carrying a lot of heavy items in both arms, the simple act of opening your truck’s tailgate can become a cumbersome process. After pulling a release handle which may or may not work well due to loose or misadjusted linkages, juggling things around in your arms as you lower a heavy steel tailgate is awkward. If a package or the tailgate panel itself has ever slid out of your hands and fallen hard, you will greatly appreciate the Tailgate Assist kit from Dee Zee. It features one gas strut and related hardware that bolt easily in place that allow your tailgate to glide open slowly, safely, and gracefully.
Installation is straightforward. Using standard tools, simply unhook the driver’s side tailgate support cable, then replace the original mounting bolts with new ones supplied in the kit designed for the gas strut. Once the support cable is reinstalled, your tailgate will latch tightly in place with no clearance issues or difficulty. Dee Zee has tested and developed the gas strut and related components to heavy duty specifications to ensure many years of smooth operation, even in the most extreme of temperatures and the dirtiest of environments. Dee Zee proudly manufactures the Tailgate Assist kit in the United States and backs it with a 3-year warranty to ensure your satisfaction.26.86Brand: Dee Zee Part Number: DZ43200 UPC: 019023985621 This part is compatible with 14 vehicle(s)

Excellent as advertised. Be aware this product allows the tailgate to open very nicely, but it does not help when lifting the gate up when closing it.Was this review helpful for you?

I love the product. I don't know why I haven't had this on any of my previous trucks. The directions definitely leave a little bit to be desired, especially in terms of connecting the anchor to the tailgate. Once I realized that the tailgate anchor was actually a molly expansion plug (about 10 min), I had it assembled in seconds. The rest simply screws and snaps together. Again, an awesome addition to any full sized pickup with a heavy tailgate at a reasonable price. Chris1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you?

Other than the fact I had to bend the original Ford tailgate cable at its top metal loop more to the left and add an additional washer at the very bottom of the lower cable connection to keep the cable folding to the left of the tailgate assist, it was a breeze to install. I found if the cable folded to the right of the tailgate assist, it would pop the lower attaching point off the tailgate assist. With this minor adjustment, it works fantastic. I show it to everybody, and I consider it a great product.1 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
