Had issue with the tailgate dropping like a rock even after replacing the damper behind the drivers side tail light. With the extra weight of the spray on bedliner, which is really thick, the pop-a-lock, painted handle, extra wires, and sound deadner on tailgate, it's too heavy for the factory damper alone. Aliexpress was advertising a tailgate damper for the 2014-2021 Tundra for $24 that mounts between the gate and the bed. I have a 2013 and figured what the heck, why wouldn't it fit? Mounted it up in two minutes and has worked flawlessly since the first attempt. Opens and closes like it's suppose to.

I did tilt the mounting plate forward in an attempt to give the cable the room it needed.
