Default Tailgate Issues

So I had my tailgate stolen off of my truck in my driveway about a year and a half ago. Since then I have not had a tailgate and just use an RBP tailgate net to make things look a little more enclosed. I've shopped around for a new tailgate and just can't justify buying a new or used one for the time being. I've looked at tire gates and they're about the same price if not more. I'm getting use to the style of the truck without the tailgate because the black net ties in a lot on my truck. What I'm wondering is if anyone is running or has any ideas for a tailgate alternative and about how much it would cost. Thanks in advance.

The only other option I can think of is to find on at a junk yard. Our local U-Pull sells tailgates for $52.

How about a louvered gate? They look pretty cool, and are functional as well.

FYI. If you do go with anther tailgate, I bought a pop-n-lock off of eBay that locks and unlocks my tailgate with my key fab like its a passenger door. I got it new for around $15 and it was very easy to install
