Rundown: Why You Want a Dee Zee Tailgate Assist

While it may feel lazy to install one, a Dee Zee Tailgate Assist has a wide range of benefits for you and your truck besides just ease of use. In this article, I'll walk through some of the biggest bonuses to having an assist installed on your truck's tailgate.

Impact Absorption

Likely one of the most overlooked reasons to install a Tailgate Assist is its ability to absorb impact. How many times have you opened your tailgate and let it fall down without holding it back? We are all in a hurry sometimes, or sometimes we are just lazy, but whatever the reason, that impact is hard on the tailgate. It puts a lot of strain on the gate's hinges, and well as stressing the cables and their anchor points. Over time, these repeated hard impacts can wear down and damage your tailgate. This could lead to rough hinge function, or even broken cables or anchors.

The Dee Zee Tailgate Assist is a gas shock that controls the descent of your tailgate and works with the factory cables to ensure a smooth open operation. This particular benefit applies to everyone's everyday use, regardless of physical capability or age.


The Tailgate Assist increases the safety of tailgate operation. This is applicable to a wide range of people. The elderly, or those who have suffered previous injuries or have weakened wrist and arm muscles or bones could injure themselves when operating a tailgate. They are quite heavy, and if they aren't used properly you could wind up in an uncomfortable situation.

Children are another important consideration when looking at these shocks, If your child has a tendency to play with buttons and knobs, they may just realize the tailgate comes open. Without the capacity to hold it up, the gate could drop on their head and cause serious injury. With Dee Zee, you can send your child to the back of your truck without fear of an accident.

Each shock is engineered specifically for your vehicle application, so you know it will fit right and work properly the first time, and for a long time afterwards. They are designed for, and have been tested with, heavy daily use successfully. If you find yourself putting a lot of strain on yourself and your tailgate, get the Dee Zee Tailgate Assist, and make your life a little easier.
