    Smooth, Slow Operation. Are you tired of your Silverado's tailgate dropping open with a loud bang? If so, Barricade has the answer in the form of their Tailgate Assist. Barricade's Tailgate Assist uses a damping strut to slowly and smoothly open your Silverado's tailgate when unlatched, preventing it from just dropping open. The Tailgate Assist is ideal for those times when you only have one free hand to open your tailgate.

    Simple, Bolt-on Installation. Barricade designed their Tailgate Assist to be a direct bolt-on upgrade reusing existing factory mounting points. There is no drilling or modifications required for a simple straight forward install. With just a set of basic hand tools this Barricade Tailgate Assist can be installed in less than 30 minutes.

    Application. The Barricade Tailgate Assist is designed to fit all 2007-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 models. Not compatible with the 2007 Silverado 1500 Classic models.

            Loving it

            Although I was still confused on how to put it on after installing it's not so much easier being able to open the tailgate and not having to hold it to let it down. Its very convenient being able to open it and let it go on it's own. Its been about a month or so by now and nothing has happened

            Never liked it

            Difficult to install properly. Ended up throwing the entire thing in the trash out of frustration. Live and learn...

            The nutsert little set up they give you is completely trash and cheaply made. Took 1 turn and the nut shifted some how and started cross threading. Then it took me about 30 mins to try and get the loose nutsert out of my tailgate. Cheaply made don’t buy
