Default DeeZee Tailgate Assist

Installed my DeeZee tailgate assist today. It's an easy process and I'm pretty impressed with how nice it works. No more having to guide the tailgate down when I open it.

I also swapped out my 3" carbon fiber antenna for a 13" stubby. I loved the look of the carbon fiber, but at least now I can listen to FM stations again.

I agree. I have had my tailgate assist on for about a year now and have never looked back. They work great. I put a 3" carbon fiber antenna on the truck and have never had a reception problem. Got both of my parts off E-Bay.

I purchased the tailgate assist thru Amazon because I had a gift card which covered the cost.

I never heard of them before this site either. I am surprised it doesn't come as a factory option. At least now I can trust other people to open the tailgate. My last truck two different people had the tailgate slip out of their hands, it makes for a loud sound when they drop it, lol.

As far as the antenna, I'm going back to the carbon fiber one. I remember now why I listen to satellite radio, FM has noting but blah, blah, blah, no music and pointless conversations. I don't really like the look of the longer antenna and it constantly vibrates with the truck parked and off, lol.
