I didn't even know there were cables there from the factory until you posted this....

I like the retention of the cables since it allows movement. I may be warming to the flat sheet with holes in it since itís really the side wings hanging down on the stock piece that get ripped up the most. I agree the Turner part is much more complex and should cost more, but it may also be more likely to get bent up when the side wings hit stuff and it the metal does not give, some part of the car like the bumper may give. And if you need to replace the Turner part, itís expensive.

I wonder if Turner offer the option of buying the piece individually. Otherwise you bash a side piece in and need to buy the whole thing again?

Hey this tray looks awesome, instead of replacing the OEM one I might just get this one!

Turner is running 10% off on the skid plate, so price shipped is now $540. I'm guessing just part of their black friday promotions? Though a lot of their products permanently have 'sales' on them.

If the shipping was more reasonable to Canada I would consider.
