Smooth, Slow Operation. Barricade’s Tailgate Assist uses a damping strut to slowly and smoothly open your RAM’s tailgate when unlatched, preventing it from just dropping open with a loud bang. The Tailgate Assist is perfect 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 then 30 minutes.
Application. The Barricade Tailgate Assist is designed to fit all 2002-2008 RAM 1500 models.
