Thank you Courtney for all your help. 809564

Nice headache rack, well made. Only dislike is mounting method, I made a mount addition that went down into the stake pocket because the second bolt called for in the instructions on the bed side required a nut to be put on in an inaccessible area, not going to punch an access hole in a brand new bed. 785422

The headache grill is somewhat stronger than I expected. The finish was excellent and overall a very good value. 696959

Came slightly damaged, not the most heavy duty rack, it was very wobbly had to add extra fasteners. Tool box fit in between the mounts brackets just barley. Otherwise its a nice rack, looks good though on 2011 chevy 2500hd 686624

EASY TO INSTALL AND VERY VERSATILE. We used to have one of those 4 post racks.. Bulky and always in the way. Now with this we are still able to use our tonneau cover! Works great when we load the kayaks too. We stand them up over the cab rack with the bottoms against the tailgate then just secure to rack. Great solution! You wont ever use another kind. 657016

Great! Its in the same condition and is very versatile! Great Quality and Value

Very fast shipping, very easy to install and seems sturdy enough. 487653

It is holding up well...my only complaint would be that the black paintcoating has faded substantially over the past year. Thanks

The headache rack is nice enough, however, it arrived to me damaged. I could literally see the corner of the rack punched through and sticking out of the box on my porch when I was pulling in the driveway. The corner was bent, but since it's going on a ratty truck I bent it back and touched up with spray paint. 485427

Box looked like a dinosaur was eating it, no directions, had scuff marks on it, 484929

Pretty useful for my line of work, no longer have to have pipe or ladders sticking over my tailgate to get to a jobsite. Only issue was a bend in one side where the mounting arm slides in but that was due to UPS. Other than that I am pleased. 447009

I chose this product due to it being aluminum (hoping to stay away from rust issues) and it was less expensive than the other options. It did get dinged up in shipping, but nothing a little tweaking and a shot of black spray paint didn't fix. Once installed the rack had more movement than I was hoping for. The base is anchored tight, but there is just some flex where the adjustable portion tightens on. I purchased 2 and installed them both and had the same flex issues. If your wanting a stout rack, especially if your planning on putting ladders against it, I would recommend a different product, possibly all steel and risk the rust. 338546
