Default Anyone have a DeeZee tailgate assist on a 2014?

I'm looking to get one for my 2014 Ram 1500, but naturally I dont see one available for it yet. Has anyone on here installed one on their 2014 yet? If so, which model did you get?

As far as I am aware DeeZee only makes the tailgate assist for Rams up to 2012. I work at a store that sells these and wanted one for my 2013 ram but no such luck.

Dang... That feature was built-in for my Tundra and I added a DeeZee to my last truck. I really like having the tailgate assist. I hope they, or someone else, comes out with an option soon.

I guess I don't get it.

My Dad always had a pickup when I was growing up in the 70's and 80's, when I moved out, the first vehicle I bought was an '85 Chevy 4x4 half ton, standard cab long box... been through many trucks, Fords, Chevys and Dodges, half tons, 3/4 tons, 1 tons... up to my latest, the '14 Ram.... I work in the oilfield, and have for over 18 years, a pickup is a tool of the trade...

I've never seen a need for an item like this, personally.
Some oil or WD40 on the latches, releases and hinges from time to time maybe.

Just me, I reckon, but I don't get it.

I have this one on my 2013 and it works perfectly. I see absolutely no reason it won't work on any 2014.

The point is to be able to open the tailgate and just drop it without it slamming down. Pull the handle and the tailgate slowly lowers itself. I don't see why its not built into every truck, or why anyone wouldnt want it.
