Smooth, Slow Operation. Are you tired of your Sierra’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 Sierra’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 then 30 minutes.

Application. The Barricade Tailgate Assist is designed to fit all 2007-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 models.

    Fantastic piece of equipment. It makes opening my tailgate 100% easier & better. So glad I bought one. I have been recommending it to all my friends!

    Seems like a great alternative to the EZ down option. Had it on a previous tailgate that I had damaged and bought a replacement tailgate that wasn’t equipped with the EZ down. Got this to replicate it and seems to do a good job controlling the gates drop.

    Went to install this and as soon as I started to tighten the nut it started to strip and now I can’t even install it completely.
