Well I was getting to the point where I needed to fill my mod addiction. So yesterday I went to a local custom truck shop and picked up a DeeZee tailgate assist. Nothing big, but at least it gave me something to do and it will be convenient to have.
Install was simple, took about 10 minutes tops. Just follow the instructions and you won't have a problem.
Here's a couple pictures I snapped with my phone quick:
And a link to a quick video I took of it (click the picture)
Another update: my truck was in the dealership this morning for a few small warranty issues. I had them put new windshield wipers on it since the other ones were already shot (probably from sitting on the lot for a number of months). There's also LED lights in the door handles and pockets in my truck and the one in the drivers side isn't working so they're ordering up a new one for that. Then the thing that I'm a little more concerned about is the high pitched squeak it makes when I shut it off. To me it sounds like it might be the turbo as it stops spinning but I really can't pin point it. So the truck has to go back in during the week sometime when they have a different tech there to look at that issue. Hopefully it isn't anything big....
