Got it today and already installed. Will make a difference when carrying my UTV in the truck bed. 905750

This is made to a very high standard. It performed like it was standard equipment on our truck. As soon as we installed it, we went to the hardware store and purchased lumber for a project. Worked excellent. It held the lumber up against the tanno cover. Didn't even need to tie the load down. Excellent product. Next I'll load my motorcycle in my truck and see how good it holds up. Can't wait 854448

This is a very good product, however it’s way too expensive for the pair I can’t recommend it because of the cost. In my opinion it’s at least double the cost of what it should be. 802444

Review from a similar Adjustable Tailgate Assist in Tailgate

For the price I expected less slop in the action as it opens, slaps against the tailgate. However, once extended or locked it is good. Remember to also use the spacer from your original cables (2019 Silverado) you will need them on the top bolts. The retaining clips (spring steel) were not tight enough so every third or forth closing/opening the ratchet would engage on one of the support bars. Simply squeezed them both with pliers to create a firmer fit. See one of the photos submitted showing the clip. 913585

Review from a similar Adjustable Tailgate Assist in Tailgate

This product works great. I'm able to adjust my tailgate to help me haul lumber or anything large in my short bed truck. Because it's easy to use, simple to install and heavy-duty, I would recommend this product to anyone needing more versatility out of their truck bed. 775025
