    Smooth, Slow Operation. Are you tired of your RAM's tailgate dropping open with a loud bang? If so, Takton has the answer in the form of their Tailgate Assist. Takton's Tailgate Assist uses a damping strut to slowly and smoothly open your RAM'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. Takton 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 Takton Tailgate Assist can be installed in less then 30 minutes.

    Application. The Takton Tailgate Assist is designed to fit all 2009-2018 RAM 1500 models.

      This was my first upgrade to my “new to me” truck. The nut was stripped on arrival, had to run to the hardware store and find a suitable replacement. The plastic cover to place on the tailgate cord is WAY too small. Back to the hardware store to find a solution around that. When finally installed, it worked great for two days and then the metal clasp on the top of the spring holding it on the top broke. Disappointed.

      THis is an awesome device. It will help to keep your tailgate from getting tore up when opened. I highly recommend it.

      Great addition

      Have this on my Laramie Longorn and love it. When looking at trucks at the auction I am surprised this is not standard equipment because I am conditioned for the tailgate to drop slowly. Will be adding another to my new truck and the pricing is inexpensive for the excellent results. Very easy install

      If I could give zero stars....

      You get what you pay for with this product, the nutsert included in the kit was ineffective, as in did not work at all. Honestly I shopped around for this product and every kit is the same hardware and general idea. Personally it’s a waste of time and money. Just my opinion. Buy at your own risk.
