  • Wiring Lights in a Headache Rack to a 2009 Ford F-350
  • The cleanest way to install lights on your headache rack is to tap into the wiring harness under the truck instead of plugging something into the connector at the back on your 2009 Ford F-350. Since there is no standard for wire color and function the only way to know the functions is to test them using a circuit tester such as # 3808. Or, if your truck has the factory 7-Way connector at the back you could Tee into it using wiring harness # PK11932. One end plugs in line with the...

  • Will a Tonneau Cover Work with DeeZee Headache Rack for a 2017 Ram 1500
  • DeeZee Custom Headache Rack - Mesh Screen - Aluminum - Silver Powder Coat Item # DZ95058 is not compatible with Tonneau covers because its brackets are L-shaped and will hang down into the bed.

Depending on how the Tonneau cover rails mount to the truck bed you might be able to use a headache rack that mounts to the tops of the bed sides such as Aries rack # AA111000. If you are not sure email me some pictures of the Tonneau cover...

  • 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...

  • Headache or Ladder Rack with Over Cab Storage for a 2006 Ford Super Duty
  • We do have some options that are similar to what you are looking for your 2006 Ford Super Duty but, they are ladder racks and not headache racks.

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.

There's really not much more too it than that. I attached the instructions link that has more details...
