DeeZee Tailgate Assist Lowering System Installation - 2013 Ram 2500

Hey guys, it's Jake here with eTrailer. Today we're going to be taking a look at the DeeZee tailgate assist. What this is going to do is it's going to take the weight of your tailgate and slow it down and actually take the weight away from you and just allow the tailgate to slowly set down.We've all had those times when we are trying to open up the tailgate while carrying something and you can't hold the whole weight of the tailgate with one hand. Now you can see how much easier it is to open that tailgate and just let it drop and let the piston take the weight while you're still holding whatever you're holding. It's going to have a very low profile and non-invasive design, which is going to look really, really good when you close up your tailgate and you can't see it at all.When your lifting your tailgate into place it's going to have no resistance of when you're putting your tailgate back into closed position, but then when you see when you drop it it's going to take that weight and rest it easy.As you can see here, we do have a little bit of wear on the rubber coating on our cable and what will happen over time, that cable will begin to rust and if someone we're to drop your tailgate full force you could risk breaking those cables. This tailgate assist is not only going to make it easier to lower your tailgate, but it's also going to prolong the longevity of your cables on your tailgate.Now I'll go ahead and show you how to get everything installed. more

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. more

Speaker 1: Today on our 2011 Ram 2500, we'll be having a look at and installing the Stromberg Carlson 4000 Series Fifth Wheel Louvered Tailgate with Lock, part number VGD-10-4000.The open design of our tailgate improves visibility and allows us to easily hook up to our gooseneck or a fifth wheel trailer in most applications without having to lower the tailgate. Now, one of my favorite things about this tailgate is how nicely it follows the contours of the body on our truck.One great feature about this tailgate is that it is lockable to help prevent tampering and theft. Once you have it locked, you can't turn the handle and you can't open the tailgate anymore. To unlock our tailgate, we simply reinsert the key, turn it back counterclockwise, twist our handle, and opens right up.Now even though our tailgate has a plastic construction and is extremely lightweight, contrary to popular belief, it can support up to 100 pounds of weight, making this ideal if we have a long load and we need to lay some lumbar down back over our tailgate in order to get it home. One great feature about the plastic construction of our tailgate is that being plastic we don't have to worry about it rusting over the course of time.
