I have seen many places advertising it fitting up to 2011 as well so I believe it will, I just picked up Sachs tail gate ift support #sg314900ez for right under $30 shipped from rockauto.com .(5% discount code 4BE6AFF51B0E). I went with this one because of the lifetime warranty compared to 1 year if I remember correctly. You need to search by part# or look under 2010 RAM because its not listed under 2011 yet.

The EZ-Down does fit but I would recommend the Sachs that the second post recommends. I have the EZ-Down and it installs but it doesn't really slow the tailgate down enough. It slows it coming down but it still lands pretty hard. I called their tech support line and they had no solution for me.

I still have it on, but it is below average at best.

$25 for shipping to Alberta!That is more than the darn part God i'd love to get my hands on this but I can't justify spending that much on shipping.

Wow, steep shipping for north of the boarder. That is hard to swallow for a small package.

now can someone tell me why in every picture and video that I see of this thing, its always installed on the drivers side? Does it really matter what side its on? Does it come with directions that tell you to put it on that side? I read on here of someone noticing that it was scratching the paint right beside the damper and they had to put tape around it to prevent that. Should I just put tape around it from the get go or has anyone else noticed this scratching?
