Headache Rack

Most people dont know what a headache rack is but a bunch of trucks around here have them and the more and more i see the more i like them. So my question is can one thats made for a 99-04 be used on the obs? Is the bed width on the inside different or something? I cant find one made for a OBS truck. They all say 99-04. I would think there the same but im not sure. Let me know what you guys think

-Steve

Here is what they are...im looking at the one called "2 Inch"..although i really like the one with the lights... Headache Racks

I think the width is the same. Ya I am thiking about building one myself out of steel and painting it black

even though it wont look nearly a good as an aluminum one(weld wise).

If you call Ranch Hand they will set you up. I have been in contact with them over a front and rear bumper that is not listed. They have what you need.

I think the ranch hand ones are the nicest I've seen. Besides the one I built of course

Here is what they are...im looking at the one called "2 Inch"..although i really like the one with the lights... Headache Racks

I am going to buy another headache rack/bed rail combo from these guys when I get the money http://trailbosstruck.com/
I had one a while back that I bought off craigslist but it was made for an SD and didnt fit quite right...the bed rails are different.
The SD trucks bed rails are different sizes... I bought an SD headache rack/bed rail combo off craigslist thinking it would fit and the rear of the bed rails are smaller than the front. The front of the S/D headache rack/bed rail combo stuck out of my bed rails about 3-4in. The rear fit perfectly but the front of the rails are larger....it fit on my buddies S/D perfectly

Here is a pic so yall can check it out...

Go to the steel shop get some steel and build your own rack. Grind your welds smooth and use bondo to make it look good. I built a rack for about $50 and all the welds are smooth and fancy.
