Factory standard on the tundra. Doesn't drop and easy to close.

Two different things entirely-

Our 2012 Ram came with the torsion thing that helps with the weight of it. This Tailgate assist means I can literally open the tailgate and let go. It's wonderful for hitching and unhitching; especially if I'm in a hurry. Just grab, drop and move on while it lowers itself.
