Default Dee Zee DZ97909 tailgate assist complaint

So I recently purchased a Dee Zee tailgate assist for my brand new 2018 F150. I never had any problems shutting my tailgate, it closed smoothly with no resistance. After installing the tailgate I now have to slam my door shut and it doesn’t close as effortlessly. I noticed The tailgate cord bends against the Dee Zee. Anyone else experience this problem?

If you still can, return it and get the ford parts for ~$40. Easy to install, factory product. Works well.

And the best thing about the Ford OEM assist is that it is invisible! Best price WAS from CJ parts, so I ordered a F-150 key FOB to get my parts over $50 for free shipping. It was around $42 or so when I ordered mine in February. All other prices I have seen are in the high 50's.
