Question Should i keep the roll bar???

What should i do? I've got the bar off the truck for the winter, a fresh coat of paint, and it's up for sale for $200. Should i take it off craigslist and keep it? Or go ahead and sell? I bought it for $50 by the way, so there would be profit. But are the looks of a roll bar on my truck good enough to keep it?

Sell it. Roll bars are pointless unless you are doing something like rock crawling.

X2! I love they way they look! If money wasn't so tight right now I'd buy it. But I think you should keep it.

They aren't that bad. SOME actually look ok, but that mod kind of died out after the 80's.

The top is like the one in a bronco. So, it comes off. You don't have to cut it.

I HAD a roll bar then realized 3 things:
1. I spent money on something i really never had a use for in town.
2. 1t's not 1987.
3. I'm not a cigarette smoking, mullet wearing southerner.

The roll bar is a great look! Or a toolbox is a great look! You get more use from a toolbox. I'd say get rid of the roll bar and upgrade to something you might actually use. A truck is not something to just look at. It's a vehicle used for people that work more than the regular desk clerk or cash register operator. But like a few others said, instead of forcing opinions, it's your choice. If you like it, keep it! It's completely up to you. Don't let people persuade you on how your truck should look. It's yours! Make it your own. Go with what you think is best. Then you won't have any regrets about selling or keeping it.
