Every now and then, we stumble across a product that at first doesn't excite us all that much, but after using it we get as fired up as we did the first time we made tires smoke in the high-school parking lot. At first glance, the EZ Down tailgate damper looks like some brackets and a camper shell door shock, and you're probably saying, "So what?" We know it doesn't sound exciting, but once you spend a few minutes adding the device to your tailgate and watch as it slowly opens gracefully and without that annoying slam noise, you'll probably want one for yourself. The kit is well-thought-out and really easy to integrate into your truck, and once it's in place, you'll never know it's there until you open your tailgate.

The Final Word

This is one of those deals where everyone wins. If there's a downside to installing this product, we can't find it. It bolts right in and works as advertised-and we love it when that happens.
