Hydrolic Tailgate For Soft Opening



I'm no mechanic but I would love to see one or two hydrolic arms that prevent the tailgate from just falling. My wife has a heck of a time with the heavy tailgate.

I'm thinking about something similar to what they have in hatchbacks to avoid abrubt apening and closing.

Those small hydrolic/shock-absorber-like arms on each side of the door.

Thoughts? recommendations? comments?
