    If I had to pick, I'd take the roll bar, but idk it might look funny with your yakimas. I've never like headache racks much, the only reason I'd get either is to mount lights on, but that's why I want a roof rack or light bar. The roll bar will probably force you to ditch your toolbox too and take up some bed space but its totally your choice. Gooogle images will work wonders.

    i think my tool box will fit in it. and i would move the lights to the roll bar on a swing down barkinda like the Baja ones so i can still use the rack for a canooooooo and surfboards. im on google as we speak! :rolleyes: just was hoping to get some imput on here

    ^ thats actually pretty cool. the only problem i have with some headache racks is i cant use the back window to reach out and grab stuff out of the bed or put things in it.

    Its a linear actuator and yup its connected to a switch in the cab so I can raise the lights up, put them down, and adjust them while driving.
