Default Headache rack. To keep or not?

So When i bought the truck it had a Headache rack with the visors on it. I cut the visors out to just keep the rack and the two lights. Well then one of the lights went to heck and the the wiring is kinda shoddy(previous owner not me). So im taking some outside opinions on what people think i should do.
Keep it and buy new matching lights
Keep it and put my rectangular PIAA offroads on to replace
Take it off and move the box forwards to the back of the bed.

Well....if you are gonna take off the light bar and lights, then move the box forward, the bed bars will probably need to go as well.

But I like the idea of having those lights so I'd re-wire and if I had a set of PIAA lights laying around, I'd put 'em to work!

I like the look of the rack on there, so if it were me, I'd go with your second option, keep it and mount your offroad lights. Just depends on what you need though.

I got in an accident on the front end. Tore the brush guard to pieces. Got a new one when the truck was repaired but I decided I liked it better with the Grille guard off. Im trying to sell it to pay for my exhaust right now.
Plus my gas mileage has gone up by about 1.5-2 per gallon with the guard gone.
