WSpeedRacerZ28 is on a distinguished road

I installed the Stabilus EzDown on my truck today. (Sachs EZDown - Lift Support, Part # SG314900EZ) from Oreilly Auto Parts ($29.99 + tax). Installation with instructions was easy and quick. Removing the cable travel limit washer was a little tricky - just got to grip it with pliers and use the provided torx wrench to unscrew it from the bolt. The heat shrink split in two but I think this was because of my high heat torch I was using. I taped it nice and neat with electrical tape until I get another piece of heat shrink and find my heat gun.

Overall this took maybe 5-10 minutes tops and it works great. My tail gate goes down to the same level as it did before I installed the EZDown.

If you are looking for this type of product I highly recommend the one I installed - cheap, easy, and it works!
