Seeing the mentioned issues with the gas struts on tailgates I'd be cautious. Maybe it's possible to get more heavy duty struts though, they seem relatively cheap on Ali Express.

Be cautious with rear struts from AliExpress; especially if you are increasing the load they have to lift.

 

I bought some for my MZ G Edition, electric tailgate.

The ones I bought, knowingly were Gen 2; I have a Gen 1 !

They didn't fit. My fault.

 

I will say they looked fit for purpose, and other members have fitted them successfully.

 

There is a large letter printed on the OEM parts.

That is the type number, be careful you get the correct one.

OEM ones are expensive.

 

There is a UK company that I started to work with, but I decided not to continue.

 

I think there are back boxes that fit on a tow bar, if you have one.

I would not try to fit a back box to the actual tailgate, but that is just me being cautious.

 

Good Luck
