Louvered Tailgates

Well it finally happened, someone stole the 2012 tailgate off of my 2001 F250. The factory lock was locked, but I didn't have one of those new tailgate hinge locks. I'm in no mood to deal with this tailgate theft crap again, so Im thinking about installing one of those louvered tailgates from Stomberg Carlson (Stromberg Carlson - Fifth Wheel Tailgates -). I don't pull a 5th wheel, but I like the industrial tough look of them. Plus my truck is black, so I think it would look great. Anyone have any reviews/opinions of these gates? How about some photos, especially on black trucks. Thanks. This is what she use to look like...

And if I can make a statement here...guys, stop buying these 2008-2013 tailgates from these guys on Craigslist. At least in my area, those are the guys taking these gates. Unless you personally watch the seller remove the gate from the back of his truck in front of you, walk away. We're just feeding this problem by buying gates from these guys.

I wish that was the answer but there will always Be a buyer

the tailgate hinge lock is a good defense

hell mine is even tied into my alarm since I needed a tilt switch in there anyway
to set off a chime telling Me when my gate is down ( can't see it with the bed cover)
