Looking for power assist lift gate

Is there a power assist lift gate option for the 06 WK?

This is something my wife has been after me for now for a while. A friend of hers has a power rear gate on a Mini Van and she liked the idea alot. To be honest if I could set up a spring loaded assist the when she pulled the handle it helped the gate up she would be happier. She complains it is a little too hard for her.

this is not new but the friend with the power gate is so now I am back on task of trying to find something to help her. Last time I looked I could not find anything direct fit. I may have to try to fit something else and modify it.

Thanks

Scott

Nothing available ex-factory mate.

If you make it easier to lift, it will become correspondingly more difficult to pull down.

Is the WK2 power??? We may buy another next summer/early fall. We are very happy with this one and I have been hearing good things about the WK2. I will have to make a stop at a dealership soon

Hard to open or hard to close I am going to have to hear about it from time to time. I was really looking for a power assist kit???

I will have to continue to ignore this until summer and maybe buy her a WK2 and I will drive the WK.

I just wish she had a 70's car with manual brakes/steering and an AM radio with push locks and crank windows in her past and remember how great it was not to walk or bum rides.

Thanks for the feedback : )
