Should i take the OEM Roof Rack

I have the opportunity to get an OEM roof rack for pretty cheap and it's hardly used. Should I get it? I would most likely use it, just not sure i 100% like the look.....I would like some opinions

I personally love mine.

I don't know why I left it "closed" in these pictures. It is almost always open.

They only look as cool as the truck they are on imo. If you will use it, then for sure grab it. If you won't much use it, I would take a pass unless you like having a bunch of stuff on your truck.

Lol I'd love to have a roof rack but would have to have a basket or a lightbar rigged to it

With no crossbars it reminds me of a reverse mohawk:
