The Tailgate Saver will work with both tailgate straps and cables but in the case of tailgate straps require the removal of the driver side tailgate strap is required to install. Please use your discretion on the weight capabilities with a single tailgate strap.

    The product is fine but the instructions sucked. Finally called for technical assistance and he was wonderful. Walked me through the entire process and said to call back if I needed more assistance
