Dee Zee Tailgate Assist, Dodge Ram 1500 09-17, 2500/3500 10-17 is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Purchased for new truck after recent hunting trip. Partner opened tail gate and slammed it down & I thought I have to find a fix for that. On-line research found this DeeZee Tailgate Assist. Ordered it, arrived within a couple days. Installed immediately and now no more slammed tail gates. Works awesome! My sons are ordering for their trucks now too. You will not be disappointed with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I just bought this product about 3 weeks ago and love it. Drop the tailgate and it comes down slowly, and is easy to lift back into the closed position. The instructions were made so anyone can install. Very great instructions, the best I've ever seen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, instructions could be better Ive had this installed on my 2016 Ram 1500 for about 2 weeks now and I must say I really like it and glad I purchased it. The tailgate drops at the perfect speed now, not too fast and not too slow. I don't have to worry about it hitting my kids on the head or my wife dropping it while trying to put something in the tailgate. The instructions could be better, so I would suggest looking for installation videos online before installing. I also had to call customer service during the install and they answered right away and the lady that helped me knew exactly what the problem was and I was able to finish installing it. I'm happy with my investment.

Does it really fit a 2017 Ram 1500? I have the Rebel and I tried a tailgate assist that was from 09-Current but I saw the paper was printed on 2015. 2017 has a bigger hole that it didn't fit. 

Asked by: RamRebel
DZ 43301 should fit 09-2017. We have not run into any it would not fit.
