I ordered the Dee Zee DZ43300 Tailgate Assist through Amazon for my 2013 Longhorn and it couldn't fit any better. It has plenty of clearance and absolutely no rubbing.

I think its hit or miss using the 43300 kit on the 2013s...mine rubbed. Deezee sent me the ford kit and all i used was the drop plate and ford shock. Works perfect now.

This is the one i bought.
Bought my 2013 1500 brand new 2 weeks and this is the first "mod" i did to it.
Installed it following the instructions and even found a couple of videos on Youtube showing how to install it.
Got two scratches on my tailgate that are to the metal and both from the shock rubbing.
I e-mailed them twice complaining about their defective product and no response.
Make 100% sure it will fit before you start.

I have had no problems at all with mine. Just went and checked it and there is no rubbing.

I remember the instructions stating that if this piece was not removed then it would bind. Worth giving it a second look.

I bought one off Amazon and it was a complete waste of money. The strut was tiny and the whole kit seemed liked it was for an older Dakota. I went to O'reilly they had them in stock and it was completely different and much improved kit vs the one I received via Amazon. It was also cheaper and I can remove it any time because it doesn't use a rive nut.

I spoke with DeeZee today. They immediately knew about the part rubbing issue. They have a new part number (DZ43301) that will supposedly fix the issue. It is so new that it is not available until the end of this month.
