Pro-Tech Headache Rack

Im thinking about a Pro-Tech Cab Rack for my truck. Just looking for some opinions.
I called my nearest Pro-Tech dealer which is about 50 miles away, looking for a louvered cab rack. He told me that louvered racks run about $424 plus about $50 to ship it since he doesn't keep them in stock. However, he said he does carry the mesh rack and sells them for $292 and has used ones for around $100.

question is, which do you think looks better? louvered or mesh?
personally i like the louvered but if it is going to cost almost $200 more i might have to settle for the mesh.
here are pics of both

louvered

Re: Pro-Tech Headache Rack

Are you just looking for looks? or does it need to be fuctional. I looked at a bunch of different ones. The nice ones are not cheap. I decided to build my own. I am going to put a picture up as soon as I can to maybe give someone some idea's..

Thats exactly what i've been trying to convince myself to do. I do like the louvered one a lot better. I'll just keep looking and try to find other dealers in the area in hopes that maybe someone has one in stock.

I like the mesh one myself. I just picked one up on Craigslist for cheap and put it on. If I knew how to put a pic on here I would.
