Headache racks are a beautiful thing. They can add a little style to your work truck and some much-needed utility to your entire fleet.
So how do you know what type of headache rack to get? In truth, choosing the right headache rack is a no-brainer when you have the right service technicians like the ones here at Camco Wheel & Axle to help you along the way.
Choosing the Perfect Headache Rack Based on Your Needs
Headache racks are built from the bottom up based on what you need it to do:
- Protect your rear window from the elements and direct sunlight? Check!
- Add extra slots and space to carry your tools and other equipment? Check!
- Add a sleek new look or professional appeal to your work truck or fleet? Check!
These multi-purpose accessories provide so much value, and with a variety of looks and styles, choosing one is a lot less daunting of a task.
Mass Produced or Custom-Made?
Next, we need to examine if your work truck’s old headache rack was custom-made by the manufacturer or mass produced. If your work truck doesn’t have a headache rack on currently, you can skip this step.
In most instances, a manufacturer will mass produce a particular type of headache rack that fits a variety of different work trucks like a glove. This saves you time and money since they are mass produced and easy to install.
However, you can also have headache rack custom made based on your terms. This will cost a bit more money and time, but with the help of the experienced service technicians at Camco Wheel & Axle, upfitting a custom-made headache rack for your work truck or fleet couldn’t be any easier.
What Quality of Headache Rack is Better?
Granted, whichever route you go, you’ve got to make sure that the materials used to craft these sturdy accessories are of high quality.
If you are going to use your headache rack for utility purposes like tool storage, you’ll need a material like commercial-grade steel that can hold heavy tools and equipment. Tougher materials are durable enough to withstand the heavy weight.
If, on the other hand, you will be carrying lighter items—or none whatsoever—the materials used to make your headache rack don’t have to be of the tougher quality. Materials like aluminum will do you just fine.
