Used Blue Ox Baseplates

Does anyone know of a source for used Blue Ox faceplates. Just bought a '08 Saturn Vue and need a BS 3332 faceplate and would like to avoid the $365 new cost. Seems to me that older tow cars that are traded would create a source for these items.

I have a baseplate I took off my 2004 Saturn Vue. I will the model to see if it will work on your 08.

Goggle Blue Ox and go to their web page and toggle to "base plates". This will take you to a format that allows you to enter your make, model and year, then it will give you the Base Plate Number you will need. Then as others have said, e-bay and other classified sites or just goggle used blue ox base plate number xxxxx.
One word is to have patience, if you are not in a hurry you will find one.
Good Huntin'
