Smooth, Slow Operation. Are you tired of your RAM’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 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. 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 2009-2018 RAM 1500 models.

    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.

    Works great ! Used this same product on my old truck, works just as well on the new.

    Screw and nut provided for installation of threaded nut-certainly stripped. Had to replace nut and bolt to complete installation of nut-certainly so ball stud could be threaded in. After that the rest of the install took about 10 minutes. Works great.

    Ordered 2 of these, one for me and one for my father. Neither is working due to cheap parts that broke during installation. Will follow up if customer service makes good and stands behind the products they sell.

    The red rock tailgate assist went on in minutes and makes a huge difference in the entire experience or opening your tailgate! This is a must add to any vehicle who’s tailgate slams open!
