Very easy to install about 10 minutes. Only thing I did different was use the original bolt on bottom instead of using the round head torx supplied. Used locktight on bolt. Works perfectly 872840

It's been installed for over a year now and I still love it. Works well, never gets in the way. I hardly even think about it, not until I open someone else's tailgate that does not have one and I realize how much I appreciate it. Easy to install. 825913

This was a real no-brainer, inexpensive upgrade that really makes life easier. Its function is simple; it eases your tailgate down and keeps it under control. If this isn't standard equipment on your truck, then pick it up right now. Takes less than 20 minutes to install. 791267

Excellent product. Easy to install and works great 779680

by:

Easy install works great only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the piston doesn’t engage right away. When I open the tailgate, it opens a quarter of the way and then the assist engages. No biggie though I’m happy. 776085

My F-150 had the internal step option in the tailgate and was very heavy. If you were not careful it would catch you by surprise and slam down. I installed DeeZee a year ago and I'm still extremely pleased with the results. About 20 minutes to install and fixed the problem. Really good product for a decent price. 729186

One year in and our tailgate assist is working flawlessly. It was easy to install. Just as the installation video indicated.

This Deezee Tailgate Assist is a fantastic addition to my F150. It has worked perfectly since installation. I had previously owned a few Ram trucks on which I had also installed this product. I liked them so much I purchased one for my best buddy. Great product. Easy installation process. 726230

ALL THE PRODUCTS I HAVE PURCHASED FROM ETRAILER I WOULD GIVE YOU A 5 STAR RATING. YOUR VIDEO'S OF THE PRODUCTS REALLY HELP MAKE THE SALES. YOUR TEAM GOES THAT EXTRA STEP TO DEMONSTRATE AND SHOW THE PRODUCT. I WORKED FOR PRUDENTIAL INSURANCE COMPANY FOR 25 YEARS. I SENT EACH OF MY CLIENTS A BIRTHDAY CARD-THE OTHER AGENTS DID NOT SEND THEIR CLIENTS A CARD. I HAD MORE SALES THAN THEY DID. YOUR COMPANY BEATS OUT THE COMPETION BECAUSE YOU TAKE THE TIME TO DO THAT EXTRA STEP. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK. 725400

    I spoke with my contact at DeeZee regarding the use of their Tailgate Assist Systems 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. It's possible that the malfunction you experienced was actually unrelated to the...
