    Debating if I should take it off. I bought the truck with it, and I don't if I like it too much. :confused:

    Keep it. It may come in handy some day. Also you can fold in the crossbars so as to avoid wind noise. Besides I think it looks pretty good.
    Good luck.

    I voted take it off because I'm not a fan of roof rack on Tacomas. The roof rack on Frontier is sweet tho.

    How often are you actually gonna use it? I mean you do have a pickup bed, I sold my old rack and all the accessories from my camry when I got my Taco. Was super handy on the car but I don't see alot of purpose for it on the truck.

    Looks good on your white truck imo. As suggested just fold the bars in.
    If you do remove it, there are plenty of folks that will buy here!!

    I like them either way but the look of them is growing on me.
    I will probably get one if I see a deal pop up. Never know when it might come in handy.

    Keep it. It's handy and looks good.
    I always get compliments on mine, especially when I show them how the bars fold away :)
