Tail Gate Assist Kit

Raising and Lowering

Tail Gate Assist Kit

Postby rngr746 [OP] » Aug 31 2017, 10:25pm

My truck is an 07 GMC Sierra Classic W/T. GM has been offering a tail gate assist for both lowering an raising tail gates for awhile now. Does anyone know of a kit for both lowering and raising the tail gate that I can retro fit?

There are several tailgate lowering assist kits you can buy online with a google search. But I don't know of any raising kits
