Hopkins EasyLift Truck Bed Tailgate Lift Assist Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Hopkins EasyLift Truck Bed Tailgate Lift Assist, part number 74211. Whenever we go to get in the back of our truck, opening and closing the tailgate can be a hassle, especially on a truck like this where it's all steel. This can be extremely heavy. With our Lift Assist, not only is it going to help lower it down, but the real benefit we're going to get out of it is when we go to close it. What used to be a two-handed job where we might have to even bend over a little bit to get enough oomph to lift it up, I can lift this tailgate with two fingers, and it feels like there's almost nothing there.Now, our Lift Assist is going to accomplish that because it's going to use this torsion bar. Whenever it's opened, it's going to be under pressure, so when we go to lift it up, it's going to relieve that pressure and start to relax, making it a lot easier for us to lift it up.

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...

  • Recommended Trailer Ramp/Gate Lift Assist For Utility Trailer with Custom Solid Gate/Ramp

If it is right at 300 lbs, I recommend the Gorilla-Lift Utility Trailer Tailgate Lift Assist w/ Cable - 300 lbs # GL1 as a more economical alternative for your custom made gate/ramp.

  • Could the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 be Removed Easily for Tailgate Removal
  • Once installed the DeeZee Tailgate Assist # DZ43301 could be pretty easily removed so that you could take your tailgate off for your camper.

  • 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...

  • Fifth Wheel Tailgate for a 1996 Ford F-250
  • For 1997 the F-250 Super Duty bed remained the same as the 1996 models. An F-250 truck will use the VG-100 Fifth Wheel Tailgate if it is a Super Duty 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...
