    The Retail list price for that undercarriage is $510.00. Which is what I sell them for. Also before you start wiring your truck you must get light adapters MSC 09993 for the '06 model. This light adapter kit has a relay included for the computer controlled lights. The light adapter kit retails for a bout $50.00

    Dealer in Iowa sells for 449.00 but shipping would probably be around 75.00 so.......... Tell your dealer you can get one for 449.00 and see if they'll give you a break.

    Its unfortunate, but some of BOSS's components are simply priced higher than the competition. As a BOSS distributer, we pay about $30 more for a BOSS undercarriage than we do for a Fisher kit which we buy through a reseller, who in turn is not a fisher dealer either and actually buys from yet another fisher reseller. And don't even get me started on the handheld controllers.
