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.

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.

Headache Rack Questions and Answers

  • 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...

  • Will a Headache Rack Fit on a Truck with a TruXedo Tonneau Cover Installed
  • You would not be able to use the DeeZee headache rack with a TruXedo tonneau cover because the rails are covered and they would interfere with each other. You might be able to use # MT70234 since it bolts to the tops of the bed sides and the brackets do not come over the bed sides.

  • Will The MaxxTow MaxxHaul Headache Rack Work With An Access TonnoSport Soft On A 2010 Ram 2500
  • Yes, the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Headache Rack part # MT70456 should have no problem fitting over the Access TonnoSport Soft, Roll-Up Tonneau Cover part # A22040179. The Access cover mounts to the inside of the bed rails and does not protrude outward over the bed rail. Therefore, the headache rack will work for you as it mounts into the stake pockets in the top of the bed rails. I have attached a review video of this rack for you.

  • What Headache Rack Will Fit a 2010 Toyota Tundra?
  • I spoke to a representative of Tonno Pro who said that there are not going to be any headache racks that fit with their Hard Fold cover, # TPHF-552, including the MaxxTow, # MT70456. The headache rack and tonneau cover are both going to require space on the side rails of the truck bed, which is why they will not work together. It is possible to use a headache rack and tonneau cover together, but you would need two compatible versions, which will often be made by the same manufacturer.

  • Will a Toolbox Fit with the DeeZee Headache Rack Installed on a 2006 Chevy Silverado
  • The overall width of the DeeZee headache rack, # DZ95050B, is 72-7/8 inches. Subtract about a 1/2 inch or so for the thickness of the metal or just call it 72 inches to be on the safe side. A toolbox that is less than 72 inches wide will fit on the headache rack. The toolbox will remain against the inside of the truck bed at the cab as long as the toolbox does not have a lip that protrudes over the back bed on the cab side and it is no wider than the right angle rack base. I have included...

  • 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. Both toolboxes mount to the side rails of your truck...

  • Headache Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Ford F-250
  • I attached a link to a page that has all of the headache racks we offer that are confirmed to fit your 2015 Ford F-250. The most similar one to the # DZ95050W that you referenced is the Husky Liners Rack part # HL22151 as it is aluminum. Having a cut out area of the rack large enough for someone to have access through the back window would kind of defeat the purpose of the rack since it wouldn't protect the back glass, but you could slip your hand between the rails of the # HL22151 if...

  • Headache Rack that Can Be Used with a Toolbox for a 2014 GMC Sierra Denali 3500
  • The DeeZee headache rack # DZ95050 does fit the 2014 GMC Sierra Denali. I checked with DeeZee to confirm the fit. The overall width of this rack is 72-7/8 inches wide. A crossover tool box would have to be shorter than that to fit. I checked the average crossover toolbox size for your truck and it is 69-3/4 inches so that should work out just fine. What I would do is to install the headache rack first and then measure the available width just to be on the safe side. Crossover toolbox...
