So the gas strut does not interfere with the cables or the angled position of the tailgate, and all I have to give up is one tie down and $50? To eliminate the undamped tailgate? Sounds worth it to me. Seems like if you really needed it you could keep that tie down/bolt and a ratchet in the storage cubby for the times when you might need it.

Thanks @wjg

Using your post I searched Amazon and found a lot of tie-downs selections.

Since I will be removing and replacing both tie-downs on the tailgate (so they match) I narrowed it down to this option:


CrocSee 4 Pack Truck Bed Tie Down Anchors Trailer Cargo Hooks Bolt on D Rings V Rings Heavy Duty

CrocSee 4 Pack Truck Bed Tie Down Anchors

I will be keeping the tailgate damper and when my Maverick arrives I will order this set after I make sure that these will fit and not interfere with the damper when the tailgate is closed.

Great pictures of the dash. I'm happy to see there's a temperature gauge. Nissan didn't see fit to put one in their Nissan versas. 🤣
My versa has a temp gauge

Mods include window air deflectors, tailgate assist struts, all weather mats.

So, is it confirmed that the deflectors are stick on, and not the type that go in the window channels?

You don't have to give up a tie down (see previous post) and as for $50, you don't have to give that up either!

Thank goodness for the outside temperature Gauge Silly as it seems that would be a deal breaker for me. I can't drive on snowy roads without knowing if it's freezing or not. Really important

Their prices are always less, by as much as 30%. Just for future reference!

I bought a set from Ford parts rather than get them installed from the factory and they are the stick on type and not the ones that go in the window channel.
