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

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.

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

I have to say etrailer is not just some ordinary internet based business where you place your order and hope it arrives on time or at all. I was very impressed with e-trailer. The company operates as a customer comes first foundation with the intention of providing as much support as possible, and full of knowledge for asking almost any kind of vehicle, trailer questions, and making sure we the customer are satisfied 100%. They have been very informative for product arrival dates and if there was any kind of issues with regards to whether or not a product would fit correctly, they immediately answer or get on the phone and call the manufacturer and made sure the accessory or part was a correct fit before ordering was placed. I put etrailer at the top of my list for buying the necessary parts and products when shopping on the internet. Make etrailer your first choice when shopping online, especially with the holidays coming. They are that great!!! Also very polite, professional and just a pleasure to shop at etrailer.com Best Regards to all, Karl E. >Very Satisfied Customer 313890

Very simple and durable. Fits perfectly. I didn't drill holes in my bed just used clamps have use them before with my rack and built 2 houses so for me these clamps will work great. 474544

This rack is flimsy at best! I don't want to put anything on it, I'm afraid it will collapse and hit my cab. Scrap metal as far as I'm concerned! 484140

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

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

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

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

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.

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

  • Does Light Bar Mounting Bracket # MT70453 Attach to Headache Rack

  • Headache Rack Recommendation for Use with Toolbox That Sits on Bed Rails
  • The L-brackets that are used on the lower portion of the MaxxTow headache rack part # MT70234 would make it harder to install a crossover style of tool box that sits on top of the rails but I attached a picture of a guy who was able to do it for you to check out. The Aries rack part # AA111000 would be an easier fit due to the design of the lower rail and how it attaches to the bed rails.

  • Can MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 Fit with Tonneau Cover
  • As long as the bed cover (tonneau cover) mounts between the bed rails and does not go over them at all the MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 will fit with it just fine. It attaches to the tops of the bed rails so it would not interfere at all with a tonneau that clamps to the inside.

  • Vehicle Fits for MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234
  • The MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 fits a broad range of trucks thanks to its adjustable base which offers 10-inches of adjustment, from 61-1/2 to 76-1/4-inches wide. The main purpose of this rack is to protect the cab from shifting cargo in the bed. This headache rack will fit your 2002 Ford F-250.

  • The issue you are going to run into with using most headache racks and crossover style toolboxes together is that they are both fighting for the same mounting space and neither are designed with the thought of using one with the other in mind. Therefore, it can be done but modifications will likely need to be made to either unit in order to get them to fit properly. The issue with the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Headache Rack part # MT70456 and the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack part...

  • Modification of MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack MT70234 for Light Bar Installation
  • The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 does have 2 x 2-inch square steel tube construction so the top horizontal surface could well be used as a mounting point for some lights. Of course, the modification needed - cutting off the vertical load stops on each end and drilling holes for your light bar - would void the item warranty. You would also want to be sure to close off those openings so water cannot enter and cause corrosion/rust. RTV sealant # LT37467 will provide...

  • Will the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 fit a 1998 Chevy 2500 Truck
  • The MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 that you referenced would fit your 1998 Chevy 2500 since this rack is very adjustable and can fit a wide variety of truck bed widths. I also attached a link to the right that has all of the racks we offer confirmed to fit your vehicle.

  • What is the Overall Height of the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack
  • The MaxxTow headache rack, # MT70234, will be 28-1/2 inches from the mounting surface (top of bed sides). That may be short enough to avoid having to cut the top feet off. I would not recommend removing them unless you absolutely had to because doing so would void the warranty.

  • Will the MaxxTow Headache Rack Work with a Crossover Toolbox 2004 Ford F-150
  • I do have a headache rack option for your 2004 Ford F-150 that will work with your UWS Crossover Toolbox but the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Heavy Duty Headache Rack part # MT70234 has not been confirmed to fit. I have a customer that was able to make this work but it would likely take some maneuvering and would not be a direct fit. Instead, I recommend using the the Westin HDX Headache Rack part # 57-8025 for black or part # 57-8023 for white as this will be a direct fit for your UWS Crossover...

  • Will MaxxTow Headache Rack Support a Canoe
  • Assuming that you would only have one end of the canoe resting on the MaxxTow Headache Rack, # MT70234, yes, it can support a canoe. Part of its purpose is to help support things like ladders, lumber, and other long items. A Canoe fits that description. You will want to make sure you tie down the canoes bow and stern using a tie down kit such as # Y04031.

  • Recommended Tonneau Cover and Headache Rack for 2018 Ram 1500
  • There are absolutely headache racks and tonneau covers that will fit together on your 2018 Ram 1500 which are going to work well but won't break the bank. The headache rack I recommend is the MaxxTow MaxxHaul # MT70234 because it will be durable and strong with its steel construction while fitting on the top of your Ram's bed rails, which will allow a tonneau cover that installs inside your bed rails to be used. If you take a look at the accompanying photo For a compatible tonneau...
