Easy lift tailgate mod

OK I have an 2010 base titan without the easy lift tail gate for my work truck, and a 2008 LE for my personal truck. I was installing my LED tail lights on the LE and saw how the easy lift worked. I pulled the right tail light on the other truck and all the parts are there exempt the shock. I ordered the shock for the other truck and it fit right on. Easy mod.
Pt number 90450-zh000 (gas stay)

Pull the right tail light. If the mounting ball are there I would think it would. There is one ball mounted just behind the taillight and another on a lever at the tailgate hinge. If yours has it pose the year and model for others.

Re: Easy lift tailgate mod

If not, I believe you can buy the entire kit (mounts and shock) for not a whole lot more money. It's a favorite feature of the T for me. No more hassle with the tailgate.

Not as easy as installing a gas strut but can be done. The 04 has everything on the opposite side for some reason. The 05+ everything is the same.

Re: Easy lift tailgate mod

Pictures would be cool... I have a base model 2011 and have never seen how the easy lift works.

Re: Easy lift tailgate mod

That was like mine. It was no worse that changing a brake light bulb. It didn't take 5 mins. Did it on the dealers lot before I left. Only takes a phillips screwdriver or a 10mm wrench or socked to pull the taillight housing...

Do you have a part # for Advance Auto? Went there and everything they had was $25 or more. Maybe they're looking up the wrong part.

Re: Easy lift tailgate mod

Same problem...I went to the local store and had them search deeper. Internet site had special order strut for 20+, store had it in stock for 11 or 13 dollars. It's called something different than what you'd think. I'll see if I can find the sleeve it came in.

It's called a gas stay. I went thru them at advanced for about an hour and gave up and went to Nissan and got mine.

Advance was only able to look up the ones for the hood( I guess that was what they for didn't really say).
