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.

Since 1977, Iowa-based Dee Zee® has sought to create products and accessories for trucks and SUVs with class-leading levels of style, quality, and longevity. Their success and growth in the marketplace has always been fueled by listening to what customers want, then building the things competitors did not offer. Dee Zee believes being environmentally aware is extremely important and views efficient manufacturing to minimize pollution and waste as a corporate responsibility. That philosophy goes hand in hand with fundamental beliefs that a product which effectively resists corrosion represents a better value for the customer – giving it a longer useful lifespan instead of becoming more junk in a landfill. CARiD is proud to offer the Dee Zee product you've seen on this page as well as the company's complete lineup of running boards, grille guards, tool boxes, bed protectors, mud flaps, liquid transfer tanks, cargo carriers, and much more.

Good Idea, But....
Dee Zee® - Tailgate Assist
Bought this for my 2013 F-150 super crew short bed. Had more difficulty than anticipated with installation of the "blind nut". Videos showed that careful attention was necessary for proper installation, and instructions addressed this as well as options if difficulty was encountered. My experience with this piece caused me to try every trick in the instructions. Got it done but the fit seems weak and I have concern that it will break, as I can see slight movement when I use the gate. However, 3 weeks in it seems to be holding up so far.

Pretty easy to install. Cable rubs it but doesn't interfere with operation.

Tailgate Assist
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.

Fantastic Product
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. Chris

Installation of Tailgate Assist
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.
