Opinion of Roof Rack Length?

so this is my XJ with the full length roof rails and i have a Third cross bar on now btw


Im debating on which rack to go with, i need everyones opinion, good or bad

im not looking to spend a lot of money on it bc to me its mostly for a look but i will use it occasionally

here are my options

This one is almost 53" long

This one is either 43" or 67" with the optional extension which puts it right behind my lights and clears the hatch when open

Any other options are welcome
