When you equip your rig with the Painted Headache Rack, you don't need a flatbed to safely haul ladders, lumber, pipes and other oversized cargo. That's because this workhorse headache rack boasts extended vertical uprights to contain your longer freight.
From the inside out, the Painted Headache Rack is built to withstand the rigors of real-world working conditions. The frame is wrought from heavy-duty 1.25", 16 gauge boxed steel tubing. And, steel louvers run across the length of your rear window, shading the sun and guarding against cracks. The top louver is split to make room for your cab-mounted brake light. For select trucks, there is an optional gap down the middle of the louvers for rear-window access.
Your custom-made Painted Headache Rack bolts securely onto your top bedrails. And, you have the choice of either white or black powder coating,The materials and workmanship are covered by a 3-year warranty and the finish is covered by a 6-month warranty.

Installation took about 5 minutes. I added another bolt to secure the unit and stabilize. Had to drill an extra hole on each side. That increased the install time to maybe 30 minutes. I have an in bed tool box that made securing the nuts a little more difficult. No lock washers were included for installation. So, I will probably add those or use a locknut later. Looks great compared to the old headache rack that I made from wooden 2x4s. I'm pleased.

Its not like recent go industries I've bought, my last one had better mounting brackets at the bottom, which mounts to the bed. These were not as strong as my last ones. These are only like 4" to 6" long to where the other one i bought were approx. 12" long and possibly wider. All together, it looks good and was a value

it looks good, but the shipping packing was bad and it had the top rubber missing on one side, also was hard in the pocket install, took longer to install also picture is different then what was ship. the side rack tube was not the same as picture.also needs a rope Ty down on each side.had to make my tool box work over the bracket design, i guess it was not designed for this.and should be told.

Concerns that this product wouldn't hold up to a work environment were totally unnecessary. Granted the instructions are worthless, and I did have to drill holes in to the side of my truck bed which scared me. once i maned up and pulled the trigger it installed great and looks awesome.

I was surprised at how quickly I received my shipment. I was also pleasantly surprised to find the rack substantial and of better quality than I expected. My only glitch with installation was that the two bolts were not equally curved and they did not seem to be curved in the right place. I remedied it easily with some extra washers so it was really only a minor annoyance.
