Headache Racks

Hey I am new to the forum, but thought I would post some pics of the racks I have built. Let me know your comments and suggestions.





I just built this one and is going to be bedlined for a guy in NH. He wanted a removable top rack for his strobe light and removable center section for the slider.

Thanks, they are a little heavy but sturdy. I think I will build an aluminum one in the future.

Do you just build them on the side or is it part of your business? A lot of people on here have been getting headache racks lately .

I build them on the side at home when I'm not farming or working at Nissan. I build these and trac bars too. I have started a small fabrication business working on alittle of everything at home when I have time. I like building the racks, especially if they are a little different each time.

Yes I build them for other people. The one in the bottom pic, I just built for a guy with a snow plow business in NH. I just cant promise a quick turnaround time, but I dont charge for them until I ship either.
