    Far too expensive IMO. I get it -- it's good plastic and can be used as a cutting board... but still... Unless it solves some major problem I'm not seeing, meh.

    A little pricey. Also, is this a typo and supposed to be "1-5", ie... one to five? Or do they really try to ship within 15 (!!!) days of your order? So up to 3 weeks just to ship it?! Dang!

    I've looked at these, it's an interesting idea. The raised platform is nice, but willing to bet our GSD would still gouge it up like the factory one.

    While I agree that the price seems ridiculous, I ordered one last week, anyway. :notsure:

    Ordered mine on the 5th.
    It was shipped on the 6th, and tracking says it will be delivered on the 15th.

    There needs to be one with little storage compartments/lockers that fit into the existing tailgate openings. The "hatch" threw me off, thought it was gonna have little hatches.

    I think about this product every time I crawl into the back of the truck. But at that price I don’t mind my knees hurting.

    I've been eyeing one of these from the various brands that offer them but every darn time I find a better use for my money. Just way too pricey. They surely don't cost that much to get cut & made do they?

    that would have been a nice idea, but see the tailgate opens and closes, thus making stuff inside the compartment to move alot..

    i think i see tool marks on the edges and logo so maybe they put it on a CNC mill and that's not cheap especially if they're running low qty per batch. material alone should be close to $100 if it's 1.250" thk or more.

    sortof stock. 5100s and thats it.
    Speaking of adding hatches- that would be an awesome idea. Would be a good spot for a first aid kit, trash bags...

    I figured the cost of using a CNC mill but had no idea the material would cost that much. Oh well i'll hold off as long as I can tolerate the knee pain.

    I am waiting for another company to make something similar for far less money. I can't see it costing that much to produce/make...
