Helps Prevent Vehicle Damage and Personal Injury

Helps Prevent Vehicle Damage and Personal Injury
With the damper installed you can avoid the rapid fall of a heavy, opened tailgate, which could cause damage to the truck and tailgate, and cause bodily injury.

Thoroughly Tested for Durability

Thoroughly Tested for Durability
Built tough to provide reliable assistance. You can count on dependable service whether you only use your bed occasionally or you drive a work truck and open the tailgate numerous times every day.

Simple, No Drill Installation

Simple, No Drill Installation
Everything is included in the application specific kit for a fast and easy installation that requires no permanent modifications to your truck. The damper is designed to work with the factory tailgate support cables.

Unlatching and supporting a heavy truck tailgate until it’s fully open usually takes 2 hands. Unfortunately, most of the time you’ve got at least an armful of cargo to stow in the bed and trying to open and handle the tailgate one handed can result in it slipping from your grasp and slamming down. Let that tailgate come crashing down enough times and eventually you could end up having to repair hinges, broken cables, or even more expensive damage. The affordable and easy-to-install Torxe Wingman Tailgate Assist is the solution. Whenever you need assistance the Wingman is there for you, allowing one-handed tailgate operation and providing controlled tailgate opening that will preserve your truck and tailgate.

The Wingman is a hydraulic damper that serves as a shock absorber for your tailgate. Just as your truck’s shock absorbers dampen spring and wheel movement, so the wheels don’t bounce and cause rough ride and loss of vehicle control, the Wingman dampens tailgate drop so the tailgate opens in a gradual, controlled manner. In addition to preventing vehicular damage, the Wingman can also help avoid bodily injury. A rapidly falling heavy tailgate could be harmful, especially to small children who could be struck in the head. The smooth, controlled, tailgate descent provided by the Wingman will preclude the tailgate from inflicting a harsh blow.

Only one damper is required for optimal tailgate control and it easily installs on the driver’s side of the truck. The bolt-on installation can be accomplished in just a few minutes with just hand tools, no drilling is required. The Wingman isn’t a universal accessory that has to be adapted to your pickup. Each kit is tailor made for the application, comes with all hardware necessary for installation, and works in conjunction with your truck’s tailgate support cables, so you can be assured of perfect fit and performance.

Installation and Operation
Torxe™ - Wingman Tailgate Assist
Very easy to install and works Great! There was a small plastic bottle with liquid in it, but nothing in the instruction as to what it was or where to put it.

I'm on my third pickup truck now and have done countless tailgate openings over the years, all using the standard "ease it on down" technique that requires at least one free hand to perform. Not any more! A VERY good friend told me about this tailgate assist and when I saw his in action, I had to have one of my own. Now I can have both arms full and just pull the tailgate handle with one finger - it "eases on down" all by itself! There is no interference with raising the tailgate; just a nice, slow, controlled opening action. These really should be OEM equipment on ALL pickup trucks! VERY highly recommended!
