I ordered the tailgate assist that the website stated should fit my 2013 ram. Well I got it all installed and the tailgate wont close. The shock hits my tailgate. I called DEEZEE and they stated they are aware of the fitment issue on the 2013's and would send me out a "fix" to make it work. They stated they will have a new redesigned kit in the next 6-8 weeks that they will send me free of charge. We will see how long it takes. So far good customer service.

A few people with 2013 Rams have been instructed to install the 2013 Ford F-150 tailgate assist (model #43200 I believe) and from what I have read, it has worked fine (if not better, ie no paint scraping) on the new Rams. However, the included torx wrench for the Ford tailgate install is a different size and won't work on a ram. They need to get the fix happening pretty quick.

In general its trial and error - its about 5 trucks out of 100 according to DZ, and they take care of it if your one of the 5.

This is the same issue I had with my 13. The Washer under the top mount was too thick. I found a much thinner one in my garage, and it works perfect. I also came across a YouTube video where a guy was installing it his 13, and he had the same issue. He just eliminated the Washer under the top mount.

When you get the parts kit in, I would be interested to know what they send that's different. Swapping the thick Washer to a much thinner Shim (that you can buy for less than $1 if you don't already have it) is a very easy and effective solution.
