We believe in choosing the right Rack for whatever you haul – no more, no less. That’s why we designed the American Steel Headache Rack, built for light DIY or recreational loads you want to keep out of the cab and secure in your truck bed. Versatile enough to take on some light construction materials, the Headache Rack is the top choice for surfers, bikers, recreation enthusiasts, and truck drivers getting handy around their home. Since 1986, we’ve used American steel that’s counted among the most rigid metals, providing reliable support for whatever you’re hauling this week. Our Steel Pipe construction is built in America and designed to naturally flex without cracking or breaking.
Our 5000/6000 Series Headache Racks were designed to enhance the overall look of your truck while also adding the real cargo protection workers and enthusiasts need. The Headache Rack provides anchor support for loads longer than the truck bed, and lash points for equipment that would otherwise be rolling around during a drive. The 5000 Series offers a basic solution with a solid frame while the 6000 Series adds an expanded metal mesh screen to the durable frame, welded in place to help prevent rear glass damage or breakage. Our Fully Welded one-piece design delivers maximum strength while reducing install time. Offering unmatched strength and stability, our Headache Rack provides a reliable and efficient solution for your lighter loads.
We know performance is all in the details, so we’ve custom designed every Rack for Make, Model and Year-specific fitting. Whether you have long or short bed rails – we’ve designed a Rack for you.
- Built tough with Schedule 10 American steel construction.
- Durable powder coat finish applied for style and protection from the elements.
- We've built our Racks with hooks for ratchet tie-downs and ropes: the solid steel rope hook is fully welded to each of the steel uprights for ultimate strength in safely securing your load.
Fully welded one-piece construction on the 5000 Series creates a durable frame for leaning long materials or equipment over the cab.
Choose the 6000 Series Steel Pipe Headache Rack for a robust steel mesh screen, adding additional protection to the cab from errant gear in the bed.
Our compact truck applications mount on 10” bed rails while full-size applications mount on 16” bed rails.
