    It really depends upon whether or not you need it. If you need it, keep it. If not, sell it.

    I'm partial to the toolbox. At least it will be useful for storage.

    I think it is more of a useful rack when you need it than a pretty rack for show. Unless you need it I would vote for the toolbox (if you need a toolbox).

    I'd keep it and use it to bolt down some high mount lights.

    I don't really like it now, but I think it would look great with some lights mounted to it. Otherwise I'd just run the toolbox.

    I was going to add what DuDe added (above). Backrack has an optional mount that is flat, to mount the toolbox on. I think the part # had a tb on the end. You can purchase it separately. That's what I have on mine.
