Hard to say but I figured somewhere between $2 - $3k. Prolly worth it in the long run for me. They aren't in production yet so it'll be a few months before I need to decide.

I use a louvered v notch with a tonneau cover and put valuable stuff up in front of the tailgate. Easy and reasonably secure. I also lock everything together as a deterrent.
