Does the shock get in the way of anything? can it be easy to remove?
I'm not too sure if the Laramie's have a damper or not. I've never seen a tailgate damper listed as an option for the Ram's.
The shock does not get in the way of anything. When I was doing a test fit I thought it might hit my taillight covers. But, after install the shock doesn't hit anything. The shock can be removed very easily. It just connects with ball snaps at each end.
