    So I will start off saying I actually own a Tacoma, but rode around the other day with a buddy that owns a newer Tundra. I'm not sure what year or submodel off the top of my head, but his tailgate had some sort of suppressing device to where if you just popped the latch, the tailgate would slowly lower itself instead of slamming down on the cabes, it's as if there was an actuator or spring on it. He even tried to throw the tailgate open and it caught about half way and slowly lowered untill open again. It was similar to a back hatch on an SUV or something along those lines.

    Anyways I was wondering if this is just a Tundra thing, or if this can be modified to fit Tacomas or other trucks as I would like to have this on my truck. Even some general information to what the device is would be helpful. thanks

    there is some sort of tailgate shock thing for the tacomas, search around here. there have been a couple of group buys, so maybe scan there.

    love it on my tundra! with enough weight it will still slam down i found that out the hard way. 10 12' 2x4's were to much for mine and it slammed down but no damge was done.

    I'd like that too, before one of my girls gives themselves a concussion.
