Looks cleaner without. My opinion is install only as needed. Won't save you a ton, but no rack = better mileage too. Even naked Yakima bars on my van will cut my MPG by about 2.

I agree with B.U.C It looks cleener without. I am going to remove mine and probably sell it when i repair my gutters this spring. I have a trailer when i need to carry more crap so the rack is only hurting my mileage now.

i like clean lines typically too, but with the side protectors it fits pretty well. If you like it keep it - you can always put it on before heading out right? Otherwise i'd save a bit of gas and run it w/o 99% of the time.

Great looking truck either way!

My opinion is that your truck looks tough with it. I also think it looks nice and clean without it. I am having similar thoughts about my own truck lately.

I say keep it and use it when you need it.

I vote keep it...looks better with it and you'll be more inclined to use it if it's already up there. I'm interested in the lights if you are selling them...interested enough to paypal you money today.

In the garage.
 
 
I don't have one because she won't fit in my shop where she sleeps @ night with a rack. However, if i ever find one I like at the right price, I'd buy it to put on & use when desired.

Do you need it? I guess I've seen some Heeps and an Xterra around town with Hi-Lifts mounted on roof racks. Also, I probably counted 8 driving lights on the Xterra.

I know, it looks cool, but what's the benefit of having a Hi-Lift mounted on a rack when your driving around town. I can understand if you're wheeling....

I guess what I'm getting at is it looks better without IMO. I've got a set of Thule bars that stay on - to carry surfboards year round.

I guess what I'm getting at is leave it on if you need it - take it off if you don't. Just like the guys with Hi-Lifts on their mall rigs - what's the point?

Anyways, you can always sell it to me....

Nice truck Eh !!!!

I say ditch it and take a look at the caulk on the rain gutters...
Get a small trailer instead...:grinpimp::grinpimp:

I have one a full size that came with the truck when I bought it..but once it came off it never went back up... its sitting on the back yard and might go for sale one day....

Truck looks much cleaner without it.. and that front bumper looks badass...!!

What kind of rack is that? I've got one myself, but don't know who makes it.
