Video Transcript for DeeZee Tailgate Assist System Review

All right today we're going to review the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist, part number DZ43101. Now different truck makes and years will have different part numbers. First off let's go ahead and take a look at it. In fact, you can see how it works already. All right, we'll go ahead and show you how it works and the components. First off you see this shock right here, and you also have two mounts, one up here by the tailgate cable and one down here by tailgate hinge.

Pretty simple to install. There's no drilling required. It typically uses a preexisting hole in the tailgate. Now typically there will be attaching point -Either you'll be replace the same bolt that's in here like this one does, or it might be addition to the preexisting bolt. Now there's different part numbers for different trucks, so they'll attach in a little bit different ways, but essentially, this is the same set up. When we pick up the tailgate, there's virtually no resistance whatsoever.

And so all we've got to do is just open up the tailgate and I'm just going to let it go. Takes a little getting used to. It'll fall steady down to the ground no problem. Now attaching points on a tailgate sometimes require a special tool like this. Now this tool goes into a insert that goes into a tailgate. This comes with the kit, so everything is provided.

The only thing that you may want to get a hold of is a 5 mm allen tool for this, and also maybe a smaller 4 mm as one for some attaching points. First we're going to go ahead and open up the tailgate. Now parts we'll install on the driver's side. First thing is work with our insert here. This is the brass looking part that will go inside the tailgate of a truck. The rest of this is a tool to install it.

Basically what's going to happen is when you tighten down the bolt, this will expand on the inside and it will work just like a toggle bolt. You want to start off with a distance between this edge here and this edge at about 3/4 of an inch. Okay, now to help us keep track of a turns that we'll need, we'll go ahead and put a mark as close as we can between the nut and the thread. Eventually we're going to go about 9 threads in. Now we'll hold this part steady and we'll turn the nut. We'll install it in this preexisting hole in the tailgate. Just push it into place. We'll have a 5 mm allen tool to hold it steady and we'll tighten down the nut 9 turns. Now let's go ahead and remove this tool, and this should be solid in here. Okay. Next this plate will sit up against the tailgate and line up with our insert right here. We'll take the bolt that comes with the kit and we'll go ahead and install it into there and tighten it down. We'll also use some thread locker as well that comes with the kit. We'll go ahead and torque it down as described in the instructions. Let's go to uh, top of our cable here, and we need to remove this bolt. So first we'll go ahead and remove the cable and then we'll take the bolt off. We'll take the tension off the cable and slide it off the bolt. Now in its place, we'll install this flat washer with a cutout and this ball joint. There you go. We'll also apply some thread lock to it as well. We'll tighten down on the wrench flats here of a 11 mm wrench. About a quarter turn will do it. Our next step is to actually remove this clip right here. We'll cut the plastic on both sides. We can go ahead and work it out. Just get it started with fingers our probably just pull apart with some pliers. Let's go ahead and put our cable back on to our mount here, and then we need to install this rubber bushing. Now we can go ahead and snap on our shock. We'll go ahead and pull it down. Just apply some pressure on it, slow, even pressure, and we'll go ahead and line it up with our tailgate ball. You can also just pick up the tailgate as well to meet it half way, and snap into place. Okay, our install is complete. Let's go ahead and try it out, make sure it works. Closes okay, and a slow descent for our tailgate. So that will finish it for the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist, part number DZ43101. .

I ordered this for my son's truck as a Christmas gift. The tailgate assist was shipped the same day. Communications via email with the company is phenomenal! Packages are shipped promptly and are followed up on by the company. etrailer.com is a great company to do business with! Getting back to the tailgate assist, we have not installed it on my son's truck yet but I installed one on my own truck. I love this thing. It took 15 minutes to install and works great! I highly recommend it! 109753

I cannot find any bad things to say about all of my shopping experiences here with etrailer. The lastest item I bought was the ezee lift tailgate package. I installed it in a matter of minutes. I did run across a bump in the road but I contacted etrailer and they immediatley responded and we're working on to resolve it. I will continue to shop at etrailer, they're good people and they stand behind their work. 172115

I am installing this product now. I think it is a great idea. There is one major design flaw with the BLIND NUT. It has a smooth back side surface and is suppose to attach to the smooth surface of the tailgate. This does not work and I am having a difficult time getting the nutsert to expand. If there were some points on the back of it to grab onto the tailgate, I believe this would help. I am trying all of the suggestions I have found on line.Fix this problem and I will rate this as a five. 441599


Comments

Thank you for your review on DZ43200.The Deezee instructions say to tighten with 9 turns. Generally that is the amount of turns it takes to get it tight. If the blind nut is still loose, you can continue tightening until it is tight. Just avoid overtightening the because it can strip the threads. I hope this helps.

I installed one on my Sierra 2011 and I think it could be a little more damping, the gate drops a little hard to my liking, but after I installed a Easy lift (pn 74211 installed without difficulty) , it is perfect. This one for F150, I will try to install on my Ranger 2011 57441

I bought this after having a rental truck with the assisted tailgate. This was much cheaper than buying a new truck and no more watching my wife and kids just drop my tailgate. Install was simple with the etrailer video, only thing I had to look at the instructions for was the torque spec. Took about 10 min 592123

After reading some reviews mentioning a little trouble here and there with installation, I assumed this would present problems. Fortunately, it didn’t. It went on in 15 mins and without snags. Between the trailer install video and the included instructions, it was a piece of cake to install and works well. This was a great addition to my stock 2013 Ford F-150 STX. I now no longer worry that the tailgate will crush my kids. 483032

  • Operation of DeeZee Tailgate Assist System in Cold Weather

He did also say that they sell quite a bit of these to customers in Canada and have not seen any of the shocks break down due to the cold.

  • Installing Clamp on Shock Joint for DeeZee Tailgate Assist on a 2014 Ford F-150
  • Are you trying to install the clamp with the ball inside that joint already? If that is the case then it would be very difficult to install the new clamp on the Tailgate Assist # DZ43200 for your 2014 Ford F-150. Instead what you need to do is remove the joint from the ball, install the new clamp, and then pop the joint back over the ball as you can see from the linked installation video. If this doesn't work for you just let me know and I can help you troubleshoot further.

  • Tailgate Assist for 2015 Ford F-350 Recommendation
  • For your 2015 Ford F-350 the tailgate assist you need is part # DZ43203. It is important that the nutsert fit snugly in the pre-drilled hole (see video). The pre-drilled hole is usually round, not oval (see image). Check out the video and see if you are looking at the correct hole (it is located near the hinge.) However, some customers have written that the hole in their tailgate is more oval and they were able to file the hole to make the nutsert fit snugly. As long as the nutsert fits...

  • Fit of Hopkins Tailgate EasyLift on 2010 - F150
  • The Hopkins EasyLift is not a fit for your 2010 F-150, according to Hopkins. We offer the DeeZee # DZ43200 that would be compatible with your truck. This solution would require no drilling, and you would not need to worry about it breaking. While the Hopkins unit is basically a torsion spring that helps raise and lower the tailgate, the DeeZee item will take up some of the weight as the tailgate is lowered, but not when raising it.

  • How to Tighten Insert for DeeZee Tailgate Assist on 2014 Ford F-150
  • The installation details for the DeeZee Tailgate Assist Custom Tailgate-Lowering System # DZ43200 does recommend tightening the insert 9 times, however it is not a requirement. Often it will require more than this for it to be tight enough. I recommend simply continuing to tighten the insert until it has expanded enough for a tight and secure fit. If you are still having issues, please let me know and I will be happy to look into this further.

The Hopkins tailgate EasyLift # 74211 you referenced isn't a fit for your 2012 Ford F-150. The DeeZee # DZ43200 will work with tailgates with or without a tailgate step.

  • Recommendation for a Loose Insert of a DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43200
  • When tightening the insert of the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43200 in your tailgate it is not required that you only tighten it 9 turns. Generally that is the amount of turns that gets it tight, but if after 9 turns it is still loose you can continue to tighten it until the insert has expanded enough that it is tight.

  • Does the DeeZee Tailgate Assist Help with Lifting the Tailgate on a 2014 Ford F-150

  • Can the DeeZee Tailgate Assist be Used in Extreme Cold Weather
  • I spoke with my contact at DeeZee and she informed me that they haven't tested the DeeZee Tailgate Assist Custom Tailgate Assist part # DZ43200 at -40 degrees so they can't say for certain if it would work for you, but they (and us) have sold a ton of these and have yet to hear of an issue where cold weather caused a problem, so it would most likely be just fine.

  • Will Hopkins Tailgate EasyLift # 74211 Fit a 2004 Ford F-150 with New Body Style
  • According to my technical contact at Hopkins the 2004 Ford F-150 with the new body style included a built-in tailgate-lift feature. If used with this Hopkins product the tailgate would not open fully due to the additional spring tension. We do offer a tailgate lowering system from DeeZee, part # DZ43200, that works with the 2004 F-150 with new body style as long as it is not a step-side or flare-side bed. This kit installs easily without drilling using included hardware. Tools required...

  • Will DeeZee Red Label Toolbox # DZ43200 Fit 2015 Ford F-350
  • I checked with DeeZee and was able to confirm that the Red Label 5th Wheel Toolbox # DZ43200 you referenced is only a fit for the Ford Super Duty Trucks up through the 2010 model year so it will not work on your 2015 F-350. This is due to a slight variation with the contours inside the bed that you alluded to a bit in your question. The 60 inch length is for the box itself and does not include the slight overhang of the lid. For a similar chest style toolbox that will fit your F-350...

  • Replacement Ball Mount for DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43200
  • To replace the ball mount bracket portion of the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43200 you can use part # BKT43200, which infludes the torx wrench, nutsert tool, and plate. The ball mount is not available by itself. I'm not quite sure why this piece is braking on your setup.

Also make sure that the threads on the nutsert...
