Gorilla-Lift Trailer Cargo Control GL1 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at part number GL-1. This is the gorilla lift utility trailer tailgate lift assist. It's a two-sided tailgate assist, which is a little bit different compared to other tailgate assists out on the market. It's going to attach to both side rails on a trailer, and it's actually a benefit because it's going to prevent the trailer gates from warping or the hinges from wear from uneven stress. So actually having it installed on both sides is a great benefit because it's going to extend or it can extend the life of the trailer gate. This unit, once installed, is going to reduce the lifting force that's necessary to lift or lower the tailgate, so it can be raised and lowered with virtually no effort. Makes it very lightweight, very easy to operate, and very simple to do.

All right, let's go ahead and check out the opening. At the minimum, it's going to be about 15 inches and its maximum is going to be about 29 inches.

Tailgate Questions and Answers

  • How to Determine the Difference Between the New and Classic Body Styles for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The easiest way to tell the difference between the 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic and New Body Style is the tail gate or the tail lights. The new body style will have a large Chevy bow tie emblem in the center of the tail gate. It will also have red tail light assemblies. Take a look at the parts I have linked that show the new body style and the classic body style. If you have a classic model, you will need to use # VGM-99-4000. I do not believe the new body applied to the 2500 and 3500...

  • Will a Husky Liners 5th Wheel Tailgate and BAKFlip F1 Tonneau Cover Fit Together on 2015 Ford F-350
  • You could use the Husky 5th wheel tailgate # HL15130 on your 2015 Ford F-350 with the BAKFlip F1 tonneau cover # BAK72310 for a short bed or # BAK72311 for a long bed. The F1 tonneau cover rests on top of the tailgate and since the Husky 5th wheel tailgate has the same height measurements as the stock tailgate, it would not prevent you from using the F1 tonneau cover. You would still be able to lock that tailgate. But since the 5th wheel tailgate as that dip in the middle someone could...

  • Trailer Tailgate Latch Recommendations For Trailer Pulled by a Dodge Ram Pickup
  • While the Gorilla Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist # GL1 is a sturdy product that reduces the lift force needed to close the gate as well as slows the gates opening, I must recommend that you always have a latch or lock on your trailer. The Gorilla Lift by itself is not enough to keep the gate to your trailer closed while traveling. If you need a tailgate latch for your trailer, I recommend the Redline Bolt-On Stainless Steel Spring Latch # SL716SS. It features a stainless steel...

  • Could a Second Camera Be Purchased to Install in the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Tailgate
  • We do not sell the cameras, but you contact your local Ram dealership they will be able to sell you an additional one that you could install in the Husky Liners Premium 5th Wheel Louvered Tailgate w/ Locking Handle, Camera Relocation Kit # HL15340-48. When you switch tailgates you would just need to unplug the camera from the tailgate you are removing and then plug in the tailgate you plan on using and you would be good to go. I attached a couple pictures of what the harness looks like.

The # VGM-07-100, is made of tubular steel and it is going to be very strong and have a high weight capacity, 300 pounds. But the steel is not as corrosion resistant as other materials.

If you have a F-250 LD pickup then the part number you need is VG-97-4000. The ID in the door jamb is the production date for your pickup. Auto manufacturers start building the next years model mid year usually. That means your 1997 was built after the model change but in 1996 most likely. You should find the Super Duty or Light...
