Time for a new tailgate

It is time for a new tailgate for the TV. Any recommendations for or against particular brands?

The three I see most are:

1. Husky which I wish they had available in black.
2. Stromberg Carlson 4000 which is actually plastic.
3. Advanced Manufacturing V-EL37.

I use my bed a lot for hauling firewood, rocks, etc. so the tailgate is a need.

I went with the Husky for my F-450...

Like others, I didn't like the way it was available in only grey... so I took it down to the local powder coating shop, and had them make it gloss black to match the truck.
