    Did it come like that on the truck or you installed it yourself?

    Damn, if it has holes in the top then I'd be on the fence about removing it but definitely looks better without it.

    If you were asking whether to install one or not, I'd say not, but considering it's already drilled, I'd leave it. It gives the truck a certain character that is less commonly seen, and might even prove useful.

    Leave it off, but use rubber washers under the screws when you put them back in, and make sure to paint them to match. Just my opinion, but I think it looks ghetto-like with it on... :)

    I had to leave it on the screw holes that were left in the roof were too bad to fix. It also gives it a "one of a kind" look ya know?
