Having a tailgate assist on your truck to make opening the bed is a really nice thing to have, and some F-150s even came with it from the factory as an option, but not all of them, so today we're going to be installing this Ford OEM Tailgate Damper Kit on our 2016 F-150.

This tailgate damper kit is a genuine Ford product designed to perfectly fit your 2015 to 2018 F-150. It replaces the original tailgate roller and replaces the shock behind the tailgate for a nice clean look. It'll make opening the tailgate so much easier. And today we're going to install it on our 2016 F-150.

To install this damper kit, the first thing we're going to do is go underneath the truck and disconnect the tailgate harness. Right behind the tailgate and above the spare tire, you will find this connector right here, you need to disconnect it so you can pull the tailgate harness out of the truck. And now the tailgate can be removed. Once you have the tailgate harness disconnected, you can lower the tailgate and remove the cables that hold it on.

Lift up the tailgate slightly so there's some slack of the cable and lift up on this metal tab right here with a screwdriver or your finger and slide it forward and pull the cable off and do the same thing for the other side. Lift up on the tailgate so it lines up with the slot right here and you can pull it right out. Locate the two T50 Torx bolts right here and remove them. Locate the two 8 mm screws holding on the taillight and remove them.

Remove the taillight. Disconnect your plugs and put the taillight aside. Grab your new roller and install it. And then reinstall your two bolts right there. Grab your damper shock and notice how one of the heads is angled, you're going to put the angled head right here on this mount and put the straight head on the roller arm. Snap it on just like that. And snap it onto the ball. Line the taillight up with all the tabs and snap it in.

Reinstall both screws. Make sure the roller is lined up right so you can install the tailgate. Finally, attach both cables. Finally, reconnect the tailgate harness. Okay, we got our damper kit installed and as you can see the tailgate opens nice and smooth. This is way better than what it was before. Installation for this is really simple. It really only should take about 30 to 45 minutes and before you know it, you'll be heading off-road.
