Outlaw Headache Rack

Our latest creation has been getting a lot of attention! Super bright, high output LED Light-bar option, and built out of 3" steel square tubing. They turn heads. We've even heard "HEY NICE RACK!" across parking lots and red-lights. Be the first on the block to own one of these bad boys. (Or should I say gorgeous girls?)
**Just look at those B-E-A-U-TIFUL perfectly rounded corners!**

Work Series Headache Rack

Our basic Headache Rack has no lights, dog ears, full width 3 pipe design, full length or shortened angle iron bed rails, and no tie downs.

Round Top Corners

For Looks

Rounded edge contours to the truck cab and keeps a low profile. Excellent for height clearance issues. Including parking in your garage.

Dog Ears

For Work

Great for the work truck. You can use them to tie 2x4’s, pipe, fencing, ladders, or just about anything else, and not need a trailer when you use one of our Hitchin’ Rack’s.
*we recommend a Hitchin’ Rack to compliment Dog Ear style headache racks.

Incandescent Lights

Much Brighter Than Your Cargo Light

The standard in lighting, these are the normal incandescent bulbs that you see most often on trailers. We provide 4 lights that tie into your truck’s existing wiring harness. The red ones act as extra brake lights, and also work with your turn signals to signal your upcoming turns. Excellent if your trailer lights go out and you don’t know it. We also mount 2 clear lights inside of the red ones that assist in backing up. Don’t run into your trailer in the dark anymore. We can also wire them into a toggle switch so you can flip them on and off on the fly. Loading in low light isn’t a problem anymore.
