The diagram has recycled illustrations for efficiency purposes. I'm guessing at some point they might update it but for the fact that you have a decent idea of what you're going to get, there's no point in having another illustration created with whatever illustration program they use.
But it’s nothing like what you get. This is the F150 version with replacement Pivot point and hidden damper.

Right, but it's in a similar spot and does the same thing. Not all illustrations are 100%. Most aren't great actually. Haha.

OK, I guess we can agree to disagree. The F150 is mounted on the Passenger side and replaces the pivot mount and hides the damper inside the tail light area. The Ranger is on the driver side and simply attaches to the inner bed opening and tailgate. And so it is what it is, And I believe it is an error not a reuse for convenience sake. I was glad to finally get a damper, but was disappointed that it wasn’t the same configuration as the diagram showed which was like the F150 damper.

I agree it's misleading. I'm just telling you what I know from experience. Wich is probably why on the Ford Accessories site it doesn't actually show a picture of the damper.

For my part, I don't care what the damn thing looks like, as long as I can "pop and drop" the tailgate without it going into free fall before crashing to a halt, as it does now. (I have ordered one from Ford Accessories and am still awaiting delivery. I hope the first member to get one installed will treat us to a video of its dampened downward journey....)

At the end of the day I agree with you on what and where the damper is. I am glad to finally have one to install. I should get the T50 Torx head needed to remove the 2 screws from the tailgate and get this thing installed today.

DONE! As was stated, 10 Minute install if that! Well worth the money! Mine was $48 with Tax through my local Ford Dealer. Ordered on ford Accessories site and selected local Dealer Pricing. Ships free to the Dealer. took all of 7 days from order to installation!

I think, it needs another damper on the passenger side. ;)
