From my personal experience, the VEZD0001AA and SG314900EZ models did not work for my 2011 Ram. They would drop quickly then slow down or vice versa. After watching the videos online I knew I had the wrong one. After I installed the Dee Zee DZ43300 Tailgate Assist, it worked perfectly. As soon as I clicked open the tailgate, it was one slow (almost too slow...hahaha), motion all the way down.

And the DeeZee was much easier to close. When the I took out the damper from the previous models there was resistance when trying to close the tailgate. Right out of the box on the DeeZee model you will see that the damper closes with no resistance.

Amazon has it going for $29. Not sure if there are cheaper places but that's where I ordered from and it took only two days with the included free shipping on orders over $25. It should also work on the 2500 according to their website. Hope this helps
