not quite sure, a couple hundred from what i've seen.
i'll happily pay 20 bucks for the carrier, 5 bucks for a can of paint, and a few hours of my time over paying a couple hundred

I think I paid like 80 or 90 for a flat mount, the angled ones were at least 130, that's a steal!

Been considering something like this...

not as fancy as some of the other trucks, but i think it might be able to work. Only thing is the tire hitting the bed from the angle of it. May or may not be something shims cant fix. have to see it in person
