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 Best Regards to all, Karl E. >Very Satisfied Customer 313890

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


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

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

After several broken rear windows I needed to do something. These are pretty decent economical headache racks, but be prepared to figure out a way to mount them with your own ingenuity. Since these were work trucks I wasn't too worried about drilling and how I bolted them, but it wasn't necessarily pretty. Had different make trucks so had to rig them all differently. So they work, I plan to buy more, but I'd have to think about it more before I put one on a personal truck. 374296

Difficult to install. Flanges aren't long enough. There is no way to install the brackets that come with it unless I open up the corner pockets? by cutting my truck bed. It's going to take some fabrication to make this work on my 2008 Ford 350. It doesn't cover the rear window all the way. It is really cheap compared to other racks so I can deal with the extra work. 372996

I thought the mounting would be a little different, it was difficult to reach up between the bed to get the nuts onto the bolts. But for the price it's cheaper then two back windows I've replaced in the past few months 318767

  • Recommended Headache Rack For 1998 Chevrolet Pickup With Crossover Toolbox
  • A crossover tool box like you said you have would extend over part of the truck bed rails and would interfere with the installation of a headache rack like part # MT70234 onn your 1998 Chevrolet Pickup. I do have another option that will work for you. I recommend a headache rack like the Aries Headache Rack, part # AA111000. This is made of 1-inch x 2-inch steel tube construction and has a semi-gloss black powder coat finish, and includes the mounting hardware. I have attached the installation...

  • Would the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234 be Compatible with Toolbox
  • If it is a chest style tool box you definitely could reinstall it after you install the MaxxTow Heavy Duty Headache Rack # MT70234. If it is a crossover design where a portion of the box goes over the bed rails of the truck then the install brackets of the rack would most likely interfere.

  • 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 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.

  • Can a Crossover Toolbox be Mounted with MaxxTow Headache Rack Installed on a 2008 Toyota Tundra
  • It is possible that MaxxTow headache rack # MT70234 will work with a crossover style toolbox but it really depends on how far the toolbox overlaps the tops of the bed sides. If you can tell me the overall width of the toolbox and the distance between the tops of the bed sides (inner edge to inner edge) I can determine with a fairly high degree of accuracy if the rack and toolbox will fit together.
