Louvered Tailgates???

I know these exist...or at least they used to back in the late 80s/early 90s when everybody used those ridiculous tail-nets...but I'm thinking I want one for the Taco...the driver side corner is just starting to rot on the inside so rather than replace it or repair it I figured if those things can be had I'll get one and maybe save 1 or 2 mpg.
Anybody use one and if so where do you get one? Pictures? Thanks!

Check with Yankee Truck down in Nashua. Might be a tough find and most I've seen are for 5th wheelin' - pricey too. But the nets are still around and a lot cheaper. The other option is a boneyard for another tailgate.

OOooh yeah...I didn't think of those fifth-wheel gates...that would be cool if there was one in Tacoma size...
I won't do the net cuz they just don't look neat enough plus I agree with whoever it was that posted that about the net (or lack of tailgate) not maintaining the structural integrity of the bed (whose tailgate and bedliner already rattle like mad). Whatever...its one of those things on the back burner.
