Had one on a '12 Ram 3500 (tow rig). Broke at the nutsert at the 6 year mark.
They work great and have put them on trucks for years.
Mine has be on my raptor since I got it in 2010 and still works fine.
Had one on my 2012 XLT Pickup for 3 years and worked great.
Installed one on my current Raptor and works great on or off road.
mine broke after about 3 years. they dont handle hard offroading well, but they will work just fine if you arent over rocks and bumps at high speed a lot. the vibrations are what destroyed mine
Ive had mine on for about 4 months now no problems. Be sure you have your own tool to get the hex bolt on the side of the bed. The one they provide you cant get enough torque to break it
Just installed mine last night on my 2014 after reading this thread and ordering last week. Was easy to install and works great so far, no issues. After having it factory installed on my 2015 Sierra i knew i was going to miss it. thanks for the great info.
Had one on my Gen 1 and have one on my Gen 2 now. A cheap must do mod IMO.
Purchased the proper assist through Realtruck.com, DeeZee shipped the wrong one and am now waiting (3rd week) for the proper part for my Raptor.
Screw-ups happen everywhere, at least Realtruck.com has been working with me to eventually get the right one.
One of the first Mod's I did when I bought the truck in 2010 and it still works great with no issues.
