EasyLift Tail Gate Installation Instructions

September 29th, 2009 · No Comments

Check to make sure your truck does not already have some type of tail-gate assisting device installed. Some 2004 and newer trucks have factory installed torsion bars. If you have made aftermarket modifications to your truck, check to make sure they won’t interfere with installation.

STEP 1
Chevy, GMC, Dodge 1500 (year 1994-2001), Dodge 2500 (year 1994-2002) Trucks: Measure 2 3/4” above the top of the left tailgate pivot post, where the tailgate mounts (Figure 1). Ford, Dodge 1500 (year 2002-present), Dodge 2500 (year 2003-present), Nissan and Toyota Trucks: Measure 3 3/4” above the top of the left tailgate pivot post, where the tailgate mounts (Figure 1).
Carry this line over to point A (shown by the dotted line, Figure 2). Mark hole A to the far left side of the truck end panel. On some early model Chevy and GMC trucks, the fit will be tight. Locate hole A to the far left side, in the gap between the pivot post and the truck end panel (Figure 3). On some late model Fords, the far left side has several tapered ridges. Stay to the right of the ridges, so end A will lay flat against the truck end pane (Figure 4).
Drill Hole A, using a 3/8” drill bit (Figure 5). To prevent eye injury from flying metal shavings, be sure to wear proper eye protection.
STEP 2
Lay your Tailgate EasyLift on top of your tailgate. End A should be placed in hole A (Figure 6). Mark the line for hole B directly above the white line on End B of the Tailgate EasyLift.

STEP 3
Remove your tailgate.
WARNING: Your tailgate is heavy. Do not attempt without the assistance of a friend. For safety purposes, consult your owner’s manual for tailgate removal instructions.
Nissan, Toyota, all Stepside Trucks: Mark hole B close to the bottom side of the underside of the tailgate (Figure 8).
Chevy & GMC Trucks: Years 1989-1999, mark hole B close to the bottom side of the underside of the tailgate (Figure 8). Years 2000-present, mark hole B in the center of the underside of the tailgate (Figure 9).
Ford & Dodge Trucks: Mark hole B close to the top side of the underside of the tailgate (Figure 10).
Drill hole B in the tailgate, using a 3/8” drill bit (Figure 11). To prevent eye injury from flying metal shavings, be sure to wear proper eye protection.
