Aries AdvantEdge Headache Rack Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Aries line of AdvantEdge Headache Racks, available in the chrome or black carbide powder coated aluminum. Search for your truck's exact fit. This is one of the best looking headache racks I've put on a truck. I really like the look. They've designed it with looks in mind, and that's a lot of times why we put these on. The headache portion of itself or that area that's going to protect the back of the truck, going to protect that back glass, this is a nice heavy duty material.

MaxxTow Headache Rack MT70456 Review

Today we're going to take a look at the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Aluminum Headache Rack. Now this part will fit many different models of trucks. What I would recommend is to go to the product page on our website of this part and it'll show the vehicles at the bottom of the product page that this will fit on. Now this is a headache rack. It helps protect the cab of your truck from the shifting cargo. It prevents any of the cargo in the truck bed from crashing through your rear window.

B&W Headache Rack with LED Lights Installation - 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 3500

Today on our 2015 Chevy Silverado 3500 Crewcab, we're going to install part number BWPUCP7541BA. This is the B&W Custom Headache Rack with LED lights. This headache rack is designed to keep the cargo from damaging your rear view window, keep anything from going through your glass. This has a louvered screen on it so you can still see out the back of your vehicle. These horizontal louvers actually help shield the sun from the truck and may help in decreasing the temperature inside the truck a little bit. Let's go ahead and take a look at the features rack on the side here. Looking on the passenger side, we've got a hand hold right here.

It provides two adjustable tie down anchors right up here to help strap down your load. These cast aluminum tie down brackets just slide along these T-channels at the top and along the side of the frame.

  • Can I Put Headache Rack,Tool Box and Tonneau Cover on 2015 Ford F-350 Crew Cab
  • I spoke with my contact at DeeZee and she said you could use a headache rack like # DZ95050W, which you reference, on your 2015 Ford F-350 Crew Cab. For a DeeZee toolbox that is compatible with this headache rack I recommend a crossover toolbox like # DZ8370 or # DZ8170. The main difference is that part # DZ8370 is a gull-wing design with 2 lids that open from either side of the toolbox. Check out the video review of # DZ8370 at right.

  • Headache Rack to Fit with a Tool Box on a 2015 Ford F-150
  • I may have an option for you but the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Headache Rack # MT70234 is not designed to fit with a truck bed tool box. The brackets that mount to the bed rails will interfere with the box. If you find that it will work it does not include any additional hardware other than what comes with it to mount it to your truck's bed rails. The best headache rack that fits with a tool box on your 2015 Ford F-150 is the Aries # AA1110102. The brackets are much smaller and take up much...

  • The Westin HDX Headache Rack # 57-8033 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 6 foot bed.

  • How Does the Westin HDX Headache Rack Install on a Truck
  • Hopefully I can help make the install instructions make a little more sense for you. First thing you need to do is assembly everything that you see in the picture I attached aside from what drills through the bed rails. Once assembled you would set the assembly on your bed rails where you want it to be (centered of course), and then mark and drill holes for the attachment of the rack. There's really not much more too it than that. I attached the instructions link that has more details...

  • Recommended Headache Rack For 2017 Ford F-350 With Rear Camera In Center Brake Light
  • I see the prediciment, so I reached out to B&W to see about that center louver. My contact said that the center brake light is completely exposed with the placement of this louver, so you shouldn't have any direct issues with your camera. The louver may restrict some of the viewing angle based on the angle of your camera's functionality, so I can't say that you won't have any issue, but I can confirm that you won't have a bar blocking the camera itself. I personally still recommend this...

  • What Gauge Steel Are the B&W Truck Cab Protectors/Headache Racks Made From
  • I spoke with my contact and B&W and the Custom Headache Rack # BWPUCP7500WA is made of 10 gauge steel except for the flat plates that attach to the bed sides. Those are 7 gauge. This rack is not tested with toolboxes or tonneau covers so it is difficult to determine if it will work in conjunction with those items. It likely will not work if the tonneau cover blocks the lip in the inner part of the bed sides.

You will simply splice the tail of the wiring harness coming from the Headache Rack into your vehicle's wiring. You can also tap into the Pollak 5th Wheel T-Connector, # PK11893-11932, referenced in your question by splicing into the harness. This will allow you to still use all the light functions on...
