    I happened to see this in their new catalog. Does anyone know if this just came out this year or not? Does anyone know how much it costs? Has anyone had any experience with this product or know who else sells one similar or better or for less money? I just had a used 8 ft. straight blade installed on my 2001 GMC HD. Is this product worth buying? Thank you for all feedback. Also who has the best prices on timbrens??

    ya, i think that it's new this year. But i just made a little box out of a couple 2 x 6's. Don't waste your money.

    Yeah Its not worth it. With that on it will make it hard to take off the tailgate and still have the new ballast retainer on and still keep your sand bags in. Make sense, as alot of guys take there tailgates off in the winter. The 2x6's that turbo mentioned will work just fine.
