You're experiencing the same thing I did, when I used the Ford drop plate with the Dodge shock. If you remove the shock from the Dodge kit, and use the shock from the Ford kit, instead, the tailgate will lower slowly throughout its range of travel.

The fix is already out...use the entire 43200 kit.

katokahn99 is on the right path. But, if you just buy the 43200 kit, you won't have the right torx wrench for the Dodge bolts. I don't have the two kits with me, so I can't say what the wrench sizes are, but the 43200 and 43300 kits don't include the same size torx wrench. If you have your own torx wrenches, you can jump right to the Ford kit. Otherwise, you may want to see if the Dodge kit works, first, and then let DeeZee send you the Ford kit, for free, if you find the Dodge kit doesn't work right. Just remember not to slam the tailgate shut immediately after you install the Dodge kit, as you may find it scrubs the paint on your tailgate...close the tailgate slowly, keeping an eye on the area around where the cable attaches to the tailgate, because that's the area that will get scratched, if there is a problem. If there's a clearance issue, lower the tailgate, remove the shock, and contact DeeZee for the Ford kit.

The ford kit #43200 didn't work for my 2013. It rubbed and damaged the tailgate cable (even being careful). Had to go back to the Ram kit which scraped the paint (raising it once carefully, but apparently not carefully enough!). Then I used my own thinner spacer on the ram kit as others mentioned to finally make it work (painted body color). Sean2d's is right about the different torx wrench sizes for ford and ram kits too. Not sure what's taking Deezee so long to rectify the unit for the newer model Rams. It must be costing them shipping different models, parts, torx wrenches etc.. to Ram customers trying to get their product to work right. When it does work right though, it is sweet.

So, is the model number for the ford working perfectly? I'd really like to add this, but I don't want the paint rubbing off of the tailgate.....then it wouldn't be worth it. Can you confirm the model number?
