    Way better vis with mesh. I am tall, so that makes louvered not ideal as well.

    There are a few of the Pro Tech Cab Protectors in use up here at the Top of Alaska where I work. They look to be a really nice unit. I'm running a louvered RKI Cab Protector on my truck and it provides great visibility.

    In the pictures in this thread you can see my Cab Protector and also get an Idea how easy it is to see through the Louvers. Buy the Way I love the RKI Cab Protector and I got it for around $300 locally here in Alaska, you guy down south can probably get them a little cheaper there.

    I personally like the look of the louvered rack better. Here in New Hampshire and Vermont everyone and their mother has a louvered one. If I wanted to go different, I would go Louvered. Also If you want another idea, check out a highway products rack.

    Here's mine. I don't have any straight on shots, but you get the idea. I have liked the Pro-Tech racks for a while and I like that you can customize them. I got the ears for disco lights and put my remote control spot lights on there. you can also get them with or without goal posts, 1 disco light ear or 2, or none. I like the mesh for tying stuff onto it, ladders, big beams, long lumber, things like that.

    You pull your X-Mas tree out of the ground with a tow strap too? I thought I was the only one that did that. Cutting it takes too long hahahaha. Nice truck.
