How to Tell If Your Tailgate has EZ Lift

How to Tell If Your Tailgate has EZ Lift

If you’re looking to purchase a new tailgate, but you’re unsure if your tailgate has EZ lift, don’t worry! The article below explains how you can find out if your tailgate has EZ lift. That way, you can purchase the correct tailgate for your truck!

What is EZ Lift?

Truck owners know that the worst thing is when you go to open your tailgate and it slams down. Or, when you go to open your tailgate and it is extremely difficult to open. Even worse, when you go to close your tailgate and it is so extremely heavy and difficult to lift and close. EZ lift solves all those problems.

EZ lift is a technology that makes opening and closing your tailgate so much easier. A bar inside your tailgate called the “internal torsion bar” helps to lower and raise your tailgate with ease. The “rotary damper” inside your tailgate helps to slowly open your tailgate with a very gradual, steady motion.

Does Your Truck Have EZ Lift?

To find out if your tailgate has EZ lift, simply open and close your tailgate. If it is extremely heavy, and if it slams down when you open it, then your tailgate does not have EZ lift. If your tailgate slowly releases when you open it and it does not slam down, then you do have EZ lift on your tailgate.

Where Can You Purchase a Tailgate with EZ Lift?

Fortunately, Partify sells tailgates that are compatible with the EZ lift technology. On Partify’s website, the tailgates will either say “With EZ Lift” or it will say “Without EZ Lift” in the product title.
