Video Transcript for MaxxTow Headache Rack - Grid-Style Headache Rack - MT70234 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to take a look at the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Black Steel Headache Rack. Now this heavy duty headache rack will help protect the cab of your truck from shifting cargo, prevents any cargo in your truck bed from crashing through your rear window. It is a grid style wire screen, which creates a barrier without obstructing your view. The cutout right up here allows your third brake light to shine through. And the screen is a welded cold-rolled wire, which 3/16" thick for strength. It is an easy, no drill, bolt on installation.

Basically just bolt this to your truck bed's stake pockets with additional . two additional holes are required, one in each bed rail. The bottom portion at the mounting brackets will adjust, you can see. On each side they'll slide in and out to fit different truck bed widths. The mounting hardware, I got all laid out there on the table.

That's all included.If you notice the uprights right here will extend above the screen to act as load stops, so you can lean ladders, lumber or cargo against the rail. And this is a commercial grade sturdy steel construction, which is strong and durable. And it's finished with a corrosion resistant black powder coat finish. Now, the overall height on this is 28-1/3". The width of the center section at the top here is 44".

At the bottom is 63-1/2". The tubing, the frame tubing is 2" in diameter. And this will adjust if you notice the brackets slide in and out. And you just put your bolts in there, so it will adjust anywhere form 62" to 74" from end to end of the L brackets. But that should do it for the review on the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Black Steel Headache Rack..

Okay! So this is a great product for the price. I had a buddy make some adgustments and this thing is now super solid. You will not regret making this purchase at all. I guarantee it. It will save me from having to replace another $600 rear window that's for sure. 378431

Great rack for a great price! For $89 you can’t beat it. Others are running twice that price for the same unit. One of my guys was driving my truck and stop short and the wheel barrow slide to the front and broke my window, but no more with this rack. And looks good on my truck. 488336

Nice looking add on for my F350, all the parts were in the box, instructions lacked a little, but I finally figured everything out. Good welds, however the two pieces that bolt to the truck were about 4 degrees off the 90 they should have been. Nice heavy duty bolts and plates to keep the ridge in place, however somebody needs to walk out and find an F350 and look at the size of the side holes in the steak slot, a 11/16 wrench does not fit through the hole without some adjustment. Other than all that, it was shipped quickly, it looks good on my big Babe. 315031

The headache rack arrived in good condition and in good time. It looks to be well made, but I did have 2 issues when I installed it. I have a 2011 F350 crew cab with an 8' box. To install it I had to set it back about 3.25" in order to be able to have clearance to drill the second hole required to attach it on the bed rails. This is because the steel around the stake pocket would have been in the way. (I plan to make a bracket extension and weld it or maybe bole it to the original ) Then I can mount it aligned with the top of the front of the box and have clearance to bolt the second bolt properly. Also, the heavy plates for the second bolt were about 1/4" too wide. I just used 3 heavy fender washers for under that second bolt, I will cut the 1/4" off and replace the 3 washers with the modified plates. One other thing which was minor, the kit comes with 8 bolts, 4 long and 4 short. They should all be the same diameter, #12M x 1.75, 7 were right and 1 was one or 2 sizes smaller, I had to go buy the proper size. Even with these issues, I still think this was a good purchase. 487864

This arrived in perfect condition, and was simple to attach with the help of my teenage son. I picked this because of its low price, and because the wire mesh was very non-intrusive and would not block the view from the back window. It looked great when first installed. And I was very pleased, at first. BUT: Beware that the paint fades and comes off very quickly, and I must now repaint it. And the plastic caps don't fit well, and one of the upright sections filled with rain water, froze, and split. You will want to drill a tiny hole at the bottom to allow rain water to escape. 490310

The rack fit my truck great . Hangs over about 1/4 of an ince on each side, but that's not a problem. Made very well ,welds are good. I'll have mine on the truck as long as I own it. Bad things... The rack should be dip, not spayed. Mine showed rust inside. 2. Not one decal was stright. I had to remove them all. I expected better. Small things do count. 504949

Attached are 3 items I recently purchased from etrailer I installed the headache rack and LED light bar. Both work perfectly. The LED bar is super bright and makes backing up at night, or working on the boat/trailer amazingly bright Since my tonneau cover would not work with the rack, I bought the fifth wheel cover. Love all 3 purchases Thanks etrailer 409879

Just as described online. Showed up on time with the tracking number provided. Fit easily onto my 2007 Ram 1500 with my toolbox. The bolts it came with to secure to the bed were too long without enough thread to tighten; however, that was a quick fix with a few extra washers. Happy with what I got for the money, and still cheaper than replacing a broken back window. Will do the job, looks clean and makes for a solid, safe bed for hauling saws and wood. 374449

Rack rusted within 3 months. Company said we would have to pay shipping to replace. Shipping would have been almost as much as the rack itself. Would not buy from this company again. 633846

Good product works need more bracing left and right side I added brace to mind Where It Bolts to the bed 633826



- MT70234
by:

There were no directions for installment but figured how the plates mounted into the precut slots in the bed. Now have noted rust spots on the welded areas where the wire is mounted to the tubing. However, product is sturdy and gets the job done especially when hauling firewood. 627995

The rack is still standing for now I'll have to buy another one soon bc this one is swelling and the paints chipping and flaking off so no it's starting to rust other that that it's good install was fun only took about two hours to measure everything and fit it. 623169

Impressed with quality of the rack for the price. Easy install, has held up well with no rust in a marine environment. Highly recommend. 621954

Installed on 2010 F-150. I had to fudge things a bit and drill through my bed rails to get it installed but it's a serviceable rack. After a year the paint is faded and it's starting to rust in places. But it's a good value for the price. I wouldn't put one on a shiny new Platinum edition truck but it's great for a work truck or an older truck. 621701



- MT70234
by:

Can't beat it for the price! After I adjusted it to fit my truck, I welded it in place to make it a bit more solid. Looks great on my truck, and functions as it should. I would definitely recommend buying this and saving yourself hundreds of dollars! 619240

It is built well wasn't you hard to install ,had a little issue getting bolts up through bed rails and Maxxtow feet. I bought to protect the back window from thrown firewood and other objects. It has done that very well,as a bonus it works very well to carry long lumber. Over all Maxxtow has been a very good investment 610844



- MT70234
by:

For what I paid for it, it held up very well over the course of a year no problem. Unfortunately i don't have the headache rack anymore because the truck that I had it on got totaled but after the crash the headache rack was still intact. 610356

Good product for the money. I push its limits and it’s still hanging in there. The down side, it is not a no hassle installation/ no drill project. In fact I welded supports to the legs of the rack so they could be dropped into the stake pockets and fasted through the stock holes. This was the only way it could be mounted to my 2016 Toyota Tundra. 515675

Good product for the price. I had to make a couple modifications to it but overall is a good product. If you buy this two suggestions that I would make to make your life easier for install. 1 - weld nuts to the pocket plates 2. Add two additional bolts at the bottom that go all the way through the rack . This makes it alot more solid. 498675

Ordered this for my brother's truck & he has Nothing but rave reviews for it!!!! Real sturdy & a piece of cake to install! The only issue he had was that the bolts that came with it were way too long & didn't have near enough thread on them - no sweat, he easily found replacement bolts in his never-ending hoard of nuts & bolts! Highly recommended - No headache here!! 492723
