I guess we were spoiled with the liftgate on our Sequoia - open the latch, lift a bit and let it do the rest by itself. Apparently new F-150s come with a damper on the tailgate but our 2013 didn't, meaning you had to put stuff down before lowering the tailgate. Enter the Dee Zee Truck Tailgate Assist.

I didn't take much in the way of installation pictures because I didn't think I could improved on Dee Zee's video (the paper instructions are also excellent). What really needs your attention is the installation of the nutsert with the provided tool.

Here it is installed on our truck.

I paid $69.95 at a local truck accessories store. Should have checked amazon.ca - just over $30, shipping included!
