This is the second order of cab guards we have installed on our construction trucks. For the price these are great protection from things getting into the back window. 203029


Comments

One year and they are working great on all our trucks, probably saved a couple of back windows, and the guys always carry long forms and rebar.

2015 Dodge Ram 3500


For the price, a good value. The installation on my 2015 Ram 3500 was not smooth. I had to take two of the bed rail parts, the parts that go under the bed rail that help to tie the rack down, and cut them down with a torch to get them to fit. Also, the way that the front of the Ram bed/box is designed it was extremely difficult to position the parts in the stake holes, the bolts had to be put in from the bottom of the stake hole, meaning the nut & threads are exposed on the top. All said and done, it looks nice and will do the job that it was purchased for. Etrailer's shipping was super fast and their emails keep you posted at all times where your product is. Love Etrailer! 227947

2015 GMC 3500 HD


its worth the money. it fits great and looks great. we will see how it preforms when i haul a big load of firewood. the only complaint i have is the mounting hardware there is no way to use any of it on a 2015 gmc 3500hd. but with a little welding of bolt and nuts to plates it mounted up nice. oh and the maxx tow sticker was on upside down so i scraped it off. no big deal. if you are looking for something fancy this aint it but something functional and looks good this is it. 188230

Good product for the price. Installing it wasn't to hard but it's a lot easier to just drill holes and bolt it on rather then using the stake pocket mounts, that's what I did and it's solid. Over all the product is worth the price and im definitely happy with it. 236973

Very good value. Installation was not what I would call "easy" though. I hot glued the large washer plates to my stake pockets to hold them in place so I could start the nuts. I couldn't use the supplied washers as they wouldn't fit the small access hole. In retrospect, I guess I could have ground them down. Installation headaches aside, the rack looks great and seems strong enough to handle almost any job. 137676

It looks good but when I received it the box was destroyed and no hardware called and have been waiting two weeks for the hardware to mount it. This was my first etrailer purchase and probably my last 188053


Comments

I had the same problem and eTrailer sent a package of hardware straight away, after a few emails and a phone call.

Ask the Experts about this MaxxTow Headache Rack


  • Will a Headache Rack Fit on a Truck with a TruXedo Tonneau Cover Installed
  • You would not be able to use the DeeZee headache rack with a TruXedo tonneau cover because the rails are covered and they would interfere with each other. You might be able to use # MT70234 since it bolts to the tops of the bed sides and the brackets do not come over the bed sides.

  • Would the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 be Compatible with Toolbox
